You know what’s even more infuriating than bad service at a restaurant? Bad service at a bar. Bartenders don’t get a pass for slacking off, and that’s probably because we can see everything they’re doing. Unfortunately, some bartenders don’t take their jobs that seriously, so some ordinary folks have to save the day.
Much like in the coffee shop story, this person had enough of the lazy bartender. He was clearly more interested in talking to this woman than doing his job, so this person simply helped himself and filled his glass from the tap. We can’t imagine what the bartender must have thought about this, but this person probably couldn’t care less.
