Please and Thank You Please and Thank You March 25, 2016 WhiskeySommATX I had an unpleasant experience with a bartender recently which is why I’m posting this. I know a lot of really awesomely amazing great bartenders. If you’re a bartender, please be one of those and thank you to those of you that are. You’re part of the bar experience. In fact, you are one of the most important things in a customer’s bar experience. You alone can make a new customer for your employer or lose some. Sadly, I come across some real jackass bartenders every now and then who clearly treat their male customers differently than their female customers. Please don’t immediately think I’m going to waste your time by being indecisive with my order or guess which wine or fruity girly-girly drink I will be ordering. Guess what, you may be pleasantly surprised by what I do order. So, if you are going to be disrespectful to me or to my female peeps, I guarantee you’ve lost some customers. On top of that, I’m going to write and post about you and that unpleasant experience. And there’s nothing you can do to stop me muhahahaha! Don’t be a jackass. On the other side of the bar, don’t be a jackass customer. Bartenders work hard and sometimes long hours so if you expect great service, be respectful and tip well!
