I have a friend who works at a bar and I spent some of the evening with him. I can’t sit entirely useless just watching so I helped out a wee bit. No making of the drinks or cash of course. I’ve never used a cash register in my life, I’d probably fuck that up real well.
Bar tending is much like life: be clever, flirt a bit, act interested, be tidy and you shall go far.
There is something quite satisfactory about the interactions you share and the organization of keeping a tidy bar. I might possibly be in the wrong career. Or maybe it all seems so much better on account of all the free booze.
