Any college student knows the beauty of forming a good relationship with the bartenders at their local hangout can change your entire collegiate career. Mad props if you’ve perfected this, and even bigger props if you’ve done so without pissing them off first. An angry bartender can make for a seriously crappy night out – a fact that we’ve all experienced firsthand at least once in our lives – but the vast majority of us still don’t know what pisses them off in the first place. Luckily, we’ve got your back.
To put it simply, what pisses bartenders off more than anything is being disrespected. For those of you who need it, here’s a few quick pointers on how to be respectful: don’t interrupt a bartender when they’re speaking to another customers; don’t touch them regardless of what your intention is; don’t send back the drink they made after you instructed them exactly what you wanted; don’t order more than one drink at a time; don’t ask for free booze; don’t act like a drunken a-hole (we know that one can be hard sometimes).
Now that we’ve got the bases covered, the video below serves as one incredible guide of what NOT to do at the bar. Although we’d love to venture into the realm of all of the other things you shouldn’t be doing at the bar, this will have to do for now.
