109. My Manager Thought It Was Hilarious
I used to bartend in Austin on 6th street, so I had to deal with a ton of entitled fratboys. One guy ordered a beer, chugged it in front of me, and set it on my spill mat.
For the uninitiated, this is the universal sign that someone has finished their beverage.
I pick up the bottle, which has less than an ounce of backwash left in it, and throw it away. The fratboy then gets angry, saying he wasn’t finished, and demands another beer for free. I told him I would be happy to replace his drink.
I open a new beer and pour almost all of it down the sink, leaving less than an ounce at the bottom. Hand him his new, basically empty beer and smile.
Luckily my manager had dealt with similar situations for years and saw the whole interaction, so he thought it was hilarious.
