Drinking tip.... [Oct. 3rd, 2003|04:27 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Order a beer.
Drink half of it.
Spill the rest.
Watch the kind waiters run to come clean up and bring you another.
A beer and a half for the price of one!

not to be a dick, but that is pretty lame.

I did it on accident.

You don't actually think I'd do that on purpose, do you?

fwiw

any time someone starts a sentence with "not to be a dick", it means they're going to be a dick.

There must be some way to optimize this algorithm...

Your real motivation for spilling the beer was to drench me, but you didn't account for my cat-like beer dodging reflexes!

good waitstaff helps...

I got my own beer at this place on sixth, sat down and drank most of it...waiter comes over notices it is almost empty and asks if I want another, I made this face like I wasn't sure and he asked what I was drinking and I told him but wasn't sure if I wanted another one of those, he told me to wait. He took off...

A few mintues later he came back with a glass and it was like a third the way full, he said "try that". He came back and I said yeah and had one of those. I think I had one more but I left him a five...

I had something just like that happen standing at a bar one night, couldn't decide...she took FIVE glasses down and poured me what she said where her five favorites. She put about a good two sips in each glass. I picked the last one.

She said she liked that one too and I said thanks for helping me decide, she then took off and found me a glass with an imprint of that exact beer I'd choosen... She poured me a full glass...I tipped her pretty damn good too. She mighta wanted me...hard to tell I was pretty lit by that point...

Some people are just good at their jobs...and it helps if you talk to them like they are people and not bark at them...

I prolly get along with waitstaff better than most but I learned from a expert.

I hope you tipped them well...


peace!

I did that exact same thing last weekend! Only I didn't have to buy the beer in the first place
