Dear the cheap customer… stop getting so angry at me when I tell you we do not have “Natti Ice” on draft! First of all, I am sorry we do not have the beer of your choice but more than likely the ONLY reason you want to order that beer is because you think it will be the cheapest. When you are trying to achieve that why don’t you just go to the gas station?! You can get a 12-pack for something close to 6 bucks and no one expects a tip because, YA, the person that works at the gas station is getting at least double my hourly pay. All of this in mind, the customer that orders “Natti” in any which form will probably not be the person to tip you.
This brings me to my next type of cheap customer who orders their drink with “little ice.” Now please tell me how your drink tastes better with little ice? All that will essentially do is make the little amount of ice that you have melt faster therefore giving your drink a nice new WATERED DOWN taste…. Who the heck likes that?! The answer is…. NOBODY. When that person asks you for little ice they are under the impression that you are a dumb bartender and will pour more liquor now that there is more room in the cup. Well sorry ladies and gentlemen that is usually not going to happen for you. What will happen now is, I am going to give you the same liquor pour and you are now just going to have way more of your glass filled with chaser due to the lack of ice. Soo your 5 ice cubes will quickly melt and then SURPRISE in just a few short minutes your drink is going to taste nasty. Congratulations! I have your made your drink with less ice and now your “Hennessey and coke” taste like pure Coca-Cola I’m sorry your scheme to get just a little more liquor (or something free of course) was an epic FAIL.
Now…. On a side note from that, at my particular bar we use an advanced technology called the Berg system. To pour my bottles I have to push the top through a key-like device where it essentially unlocks it and pours the drink to an EXACT single or and EXACT double. Then it is electronically computed to where if it just poured me a double the computer has to match that and have that double rang in. So my point is, whether or not you think I am going to pour you more liquor when you ask for less ice, I am just letting you know that will never be the case. # 1 the berg system makes sure that can’t happen and #2 if you’re the customer asking me for “little ice” there is no way I would over pour your liquor by choice ANYHOW! ;)
