Respect

Guy comes up to the bar, says, can you run my tab?  I say sure, grab it, run it, and as I’m waiting for the card to go through, I look at his card, and it has a small picture of him. And it looks nothing like him at all. The guy in the picture looks 250 easy, and the guy in front of me looks 160 tops.

I give him the card and his receipt, and say, man, is that you on the card?  He shakes his head yes. Then I say, did you lose a bunch of weight?  He says, yes, I did.

I give him a high-five and say, good job, man.

I always feel a glow of admiration for someone who does that.

From my heart to yours,

Clint Curtis. Bartender.
