[TRANSCRIPT] Bar Etiquette NO NOs #10 – Helping Yourself to Tips | Tips on Bar Etiquette

So you’re at the bar, right? And, uh, it’s a club, so all over the bar there’s change, right?

‘Cause there’s bartender’s tips all over the bar, and he’s really busy you know, and he doesn’t have time to scoop up all the change and everything. So you think it’s a good idea to maybe just use some of that money.   It’s floating around, you know and the bartender’s not grabbing it.  He must not want it then.

SO, you do one of these little sneaky things, where, uh, you start taking the change off the bar and counting it up so that you can pay for your next drink.

No! No! No! You don’t take the bartender’s money.

There’s a word for that.

It’s called “stealing”!

And you’re gonna get kicked out for it.
