One Saturday at the beginning of the rush I was up our bar hanging out chatting about the latest restaurant gossip and all, and I witnessed one of the great moments in bartending history.
A server order came back for a six top.
White Zin, of course.
Well as the barkeep scoffs at the order he notices the request for ice in one of the glasses.
He complies of course and the drink is in the server's hand and out the door.
About two minutes pass, and he has a little visitor.
A smoking little thing in a red number slinks up to the bar, two glasses of white zin in hand.
She's hot and she knows it.
The bartender is a veteran, he has the thousand yard stare.
He knows and advisary by sight.
"Sir, my friend ordered her glass of wine and it isn't as full as mine!" The little tart speaks.
"And she feels left out..."
The barkeep shakes his head,"well I put ice in your glass, that's why its full."
"Well I know that, but can't you fill hers up?"
"Does she want me to put ice in it?"
"No, she just wants it full."
"She has the proper pour, if you want me to fill it up I'll have her charged for another glass," replies the veteran with steel in his eyes.
The blond looks confused, this isn't going as planned...
She's hot, and her looks aren't getting her anywhere for the first time her little mind can remember.
The bartender doesn't care what she looks like.
He sees her for what she is.
She tries the pouting angle...
"But, my friend...She feels left out."
With resolve, the answer is, "I don't care."
The seduction in her eyes turns to cold anger.
It's amazing how a beautiful woman can become so ugly so fast.
With the hate burning in her eyes she said and I quote...
"You're not a very happy person, are you???"
One word was spoken as the bartender turned and walked away.
