While you may have the liquid courage to say whatever you want in a bar, there are some things that bartenders just won’t tell you, even if it’s to everyone’s benefit.
So Business Insider asked more than 30 bartenders to weigh in on what they’d love to tell customers but can’t.
We’ve anonymously included some of the more constructive insights here:
'You're nice when you stick with beer, but a demon on spirits.'
'Running credit cards is more time consuming than a cash transaction, and the tiny tip from one drink is not worth my extra time.'
'Almost no restaurants or bars clean their ice machines as regularly as they're supposed to. '
'I am not a servant. I am not a potential date. Please don't take advantage of the fact that I have to treat you in a professional manner. This is my place of employment, not your house. You are the guest here. Please behave like one.'
'I hate seeing your chewed up food all over your face while you're dripping ranch all over the bar top. How messy could you possibly be?'
'I know you have been waiting for a while. If I haven't taken your order, it is for a good reason. Wait just like everyone else! Everyone wants their drinks asap.'
'Stop trying to 'work' at a bar. You're a functional alcoholic. Cram your drinking in now and your work in tomorrow.'
'Time is money and your bar stool is real estate.
'Don't ask me to hold your seat. Did you ask with a $10 bill? If not, then the answer is 'no.'
'And do not get annoyed when people order over you if you are sitting on a bar stool. Again, you're on very expensive real estate. The bar is a place for transactions, not private dining.'
'You can tell what type of person someone is by their drink order in specific bars.'
'If you're in a bar with tons of other people and it's loud and you order something complicated, you clearly don't value people's time. How you react to the bar being out of your 'usual' is also very indicative of your personality.'
