So you just turned 21 and are jumping at the chance of ordering alcohol at a restaurant. Or maybe you had a rough week at work and need just a little help taking the edge off with a nice glass or red wine. It will definitely add a kick to your meal and make you feel like you can hang with the best of them. Maybe you will even get one “on the house” because cute girls always do, right?
Wrong. Never, ever expect to receive a free alcoholic drink even if you have ordered more than one from a restaurant (or if you think you’re looking good). You sure as hell shouldn’t demand that you get one either. If you decided to order alcohol, make sure you are prepared to pay for it, too.
If you are lucky enough to be gifted with an alcoholic beverage, make sure to be thankful and tip heavily!
