When It Reigns, It Pours

| Working | February 22, 2013

(At the restaurant where I bartend, the owner has some friends over for a meal and is sitting and eating with them.)

Owner: *as I’m pouring wine* “No, no, you’re doing it wrong!”

Me: “Oh,  sorry sir.”

Owner: “You’re meant to do it like this!”

(At this point, my owner stands up, snatches the bottle from my hand, and begins pouring a glass by nearly turning the bottle upside down.)

Owner: “Like that, see?”

Owner’s Friend: “Erm… you might want to not do that.”

Owner: “Hmm? why not?”

Owner’s Friend: “For starters, the young man was doing fine on his own.  Secondly, you just poured red wine in a glass half filled with white. Thirdly, your shoes are looking a bit soggy now.”

(It turned out the owner had splashed red wine all down the front of himself. His friends not only apologised for him, but also tipped me well!)
