A Friendly Bump

, , , , , | Right | August 1, 2022

I work in a small on-campus pub at a university in Germany.

Me: “One small beer is 1,50€.”

Student: “Oh, come on. Can’t I just pay the price for close friends?”

This is “Freundschaftspreis” in German.

Me: “Well, okay. One small beer is 2€, then.”

Student: “Wait, what?”

Me: “We are a non-profit. Friends do support us and pay more.”

We managed this pub in our spare time and didn’t get any money for it. Every bit of income was used to maintain the pub. We could, however, get a few drinks for free when we worked, so if someone was really broke and nice about it, we often gave them our free drinks, but not if they were nagging us about it.
