As a bartender, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly. I’ve met some amazing people who I’ve built relationships with outside of the bar and have had a lot of fun at work. Unfortunately, the bad and the ugly are commonplace: I’ve politely smiled and nodded at patrons’ drunken babble that I could have no hope of understanding; seen people forget their winter coats in 20-degree weather; seen people fall off their barstools; watched someone vomit on the bar, etc. But I’m not here to regale you with tales of a NYC barkeep. I’m here to let you know the things that you do that will annoy your bartender to no end, and likely get you ignored when you order your 2nd round of drinks. Pay attention.
