Bar Etiquette NO NOs #7 – Do You Know Who I Am? | Ordering Drinks at a Bar

[TRANSCRIPT] Bar Etiquette Video #7 – “Know Who I Am?”

Do you know? Do you know who I am? Do you know who I am? No! No, I don’t know who you are. And I don’t care.

You’re important… if you’re that important, it would have been pointed out to me by my manager, my boss.

Don’t use the “do you know who I am?”, it’s not going to get you anywhere. And, the other one is… “I know the owner”. So do I. Look, his signature’s right there on my pay check. Don’t use that… “I know the owner”… it doesn’t make any difference.  You’re not going to get a better drink, you’re not going to get served if I cut you off.  Ok?

Things not to do at the bar… and the bartender will love you for it.
