Watch Bartenders Explain the Most Annoying Things Customers Do

New, 3 comments

Pro tip: know what you want before you flag them down.

Thanks to the craft cocktail renaissance, bartending has been elevated to a highly respected profession — but seeing as they're in the service industry, the people who serve your booze are still subject to all kinds of annoyances from customers. In this video from Playboy, bartenders reveal what pisses them off the most.

While some of the grievances may seem obvious — please don't snap your fingers at your bartender like a dog — others are perhaps less so, like asking what the most popular drinks are at a particular bar or requesting a drink that's "not too sweet." At any rate, avoiding these common behaviors next time you're at a bar should help ensure a happy bartender — and a tasty beverage.
