While not normally a problem, when you’re already pouring a glass of wine, a pint of bitter, several Jägerbombs, all while a Guinness is settling and you’re adding up someone else’s bill, it creates a bit of a conundrum.
What do they think? You’re some kind of drink-pouring octopus? We bar staff are good at multitasking but sometimes, you just don’t have enough hands.
But of course, the customer is always right. So you flash that sickly sweet smile without revealing your inner thoughts of how much you’d like to stick this moron’s request where the sun doesn’t shine.
“Not a problem sir, I’ll be with you in just a second.”
