Bartending requires an incredible amount of patience and forgiveness when it comes to dealing with the intoxicated public night after night. Drunk people are stupid and interacting with stupid people every evening will drive you absolutely insane if you aren’t careful. You have to be able to take a few punches and let the stupid roll off your back. So tonight…this guy walks into my bar who has probably been in hundreds of times over the last five years. He is pretty interesting to talk to when he is sober but the second he goes over the edge…he bascially turns into a fucking asshole. As he approached the bar, it was obvious he had already stepped off and was in full asshole mode. I apprehensively asked what I could get for him. He grunted out an order for a Mirror Pond Pale Ale. We have never carried Mirror Pond and I conveyed that fact to him as bluntly as I could. He than asked me for a Newcastle Brown Ale…another beer we have never sold. Strike two dumbass. I informed him that he might have more success by asking for a beer that we actually stock. He didn’t like my little comment and screamed, “Help me out! Just tell me what to drink.” I handed him a Sierra Nevada…which he normally drinks…and tried not to laugh in his face. Drunk people are stupid might be an understatement. I want to dedicate this tale to the bartender in Manhattan who created the following hilarious, straightforward, and extremely true to life video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73afG1qQAMU&feature=related Hang in there Angry Bartender. It’s the same stupid shit everywhere.
