I am broke, and will tell you all my woes. And order a couple pitchers of beer and possibly a shot or two. I’m so sorry you have to wash my dishes, make my drinks, stand here & listen to me because I am clearly the only person in the world experiencing financial distress. But in light of all of that, I do not have enough money to tip you…I am so, so, sorry. Here’s a dollar though, I hope that makes up for my apology. And your time. I’m really, just, broke. And now, so are you…again, sorry!!!
Broke & Sorry Guest at your bar
This happened to me several times last week. One man was having issues with work & lives at home with his mother. Another sent her child her college. Another just quit his job. So, here if am having the worst week of my life and you think your apologies mean something to me.
Here’s the hard truth customers. Your tips are our living. Duh. You knew that. If you can’t afford to go out & order a beer…let alone a pitcher, some shots, a pack of ciggies, don’t fucking go out!
Funny thing is broke people don’t go out & order one damn beer. I have been broke & still budgeted enough to tip 20% you’re being ridiculous. Even the homeless that randomly wander in will only order one beer & tip decently but you working class will order and order and tip maybe a dollar if I’m lucky or run out on your tab.
REAL TALK there’s a special place for you who run out on your tab. I pay for it. Me, alone. And I will see you again because you will be back. That’s just bar life.
I love, LOVE, being a bartender. I love listening to your crazy stories, hearing your gossip, making you drinks…but when you treat me like a second class citizen, when you betray my trust when you trust in me so much to tell me these things I lose all respect for you.
So, rant over, please, if you don’t have money to tip your bartender at least a dollar a drink (they are working hard for your ass) then…STAY HOME!
If you don’t have money to tip, don’t tell me…just…STAY HOME!
If it was a bad week & you can’t afford a good tip…uhhhh don’t drink so much, drink at home or… STAY HOME AND DONT DRINK!!
I know, know, you don’t want to drink at home…it’s boring, it sucks, it means you’re a loser in your opinion…no, one, it doesn’t. Two, it’s wayyy cheaper…and you can wallow in your misery alone rather than projecting on your bartender which is actually not our job to be your depressing sounding board.
So, please remember, if you can’t tip, don’t go out. Save your money for a better life, alcohol and bars don’t make life better you’re just lonely. Get a bottle of wine & a movie for goodness sake it’s probably cheaper and you don’t have to apologize to anyone.
