The One Thing You Should Never Say To A Bartender

Most of us hit the bars to have drinks with friends and just generally enjoy life. Sometimes we forget that the people serving drinks aren’t necessarily there for the same reasons as us, to “have some fun.” Bartenders are there to serve their customers and make money. It’s their job after all!

That’s why according to Caitlin McGarty from the Man Guide, the worst thing you can say to a bartender is calling them by anything other than their name. Calling out for your bartender like “Hey sweetheart, honey or babe” will not get you your drinks any faster. In fact, it will probably do just the opposite. That person serving you has a name, so use it. Following that up with a backhanded question like “is this your actual job?” is even worse.

So, do yourself and your bartender a favor and don’t be that person to ruin a perfectly good night because of ignorance.

Don’t forget to check out the best and worst drinks to order at a bar, according to a bartender and the worst foods to order at a sports bar, according to a bartender.
