Confabulat: that was my nickname in highschool: I don't trust my teetotalling coworkers.  Not because they don't drink, but because they are the one's I've learned I have to watch my back around for issues completely unrelated to alcohol.

I don't trust teetotalers peroid. Unless you have some medical reason that you can't drink, if you don't drink, then you are flawed emotionally and mentally and should be avoided by sane people at all costs.

My last girlfriend quit drinking about 8 months into our relationship.  I stuck it out for another year.  That was a horrible year.  Basically, I broke up with a girl 'cause she quit drinking.

Plant Rights Activist: talkertopc: I never had a job interview at a restaurant but if it happened than I would follow what the interviewer is drinking. If the server asks me first I would say I'm not sure yet and let her/him ask the interviewer first.

Appearing indecisive is a great way to fail an interview

Yep. My advice is to order water. It's something everyone needs, there is no social stigma against it, and staying hydrated will help you continue speaking clearly as the interview goes on. There's really no downside unless you're a klutz and spill it. Even then spilling water looks a lot less bad than spilling beer or wine.
