[TRANSCRIPT] — Bar Etiquette No-No’s #1 – The Searcher

Reese Richards here from!

So you’re at the bar.  Ok, so here’s the scenario: nice girl, I walk up, I’m like “Hey, how you doing? What can I get for you?” “I’ll have a gin and tonic and a vodka cranberry please?”  “No problem, baby, I’ll be right back.”

I go over and I get the drinks. I come back, I drop them off. “That’ll be $10.50 please!”  “Ok, uh….uh…” And then there’s some checking in the purse… and there’s no money ready.  Come on, I’m a busy guy, man!

You’re beautiful, I’d love to serve you, but I’ve got other people to take care of, ok?

Be respectful of the bartender.

Have your money ready.  Thanks.
