Bar etiquette for idiots
After 14 years in the hospitality industry (working in bars, venues and restaurants) I have held pretty much every role on those hallowed grounds from manager to lowly bitch boy. Now you may refer to these establishments as the local, the boozer, the hunting grounds and for some less than honest spouses the office. For me it was hell. Not because of my colleagues or working within a high pressure industry (and trust me 20 impatient drunk people makes for a pretty high pressure environment) no! The single solitary component that made working in a pub feels like purgatory is you, the general public! However do not threat. For I am here to amend your horrendous habits and wicked ways. And teach you the correct way to behave in a drinking establishment. In essence this is a guide on how not to be a dick.
A brief introduction to me
Hello. My name is Troy. I'm on the tip of the tail end of my 20's and am currently unemployed. Not because of the corona-virus but because I was sick of working my ass off for 12 hours a day just so I could afford to pay my rent on a flat that was about as roomy as a shoe box in central London. So one day I decided to quite my bar manager job, move back in with my parents and spend some time doing the things I love again. This included activities such as reading books, drawing, playing guitar, going to shows, travel and other such endevours. I even managed to find myself a girlfriend. I'll be honest she sometimes annoys the shit out of me but after a string of bad relationships and shameful one night stands its nice to have something stable that for the most part makes me happy and its an added bonus that she doesn't mind the sight of me naked.
