Busch Light In A Bud Light Bottle

I’m behind the Hotel bar, in the house this weekend, are people visiting from small towns in Iowa, for a wrestling tournament.

These people have a refined taste in beer.  Almost exotic, I’d say.

Busch Light.

Yep, that’s about it.  Busch Light.  Pretty simple.

Unfortunately, we don’t have Busch Light behind the bar.

I’m getting frustrated because every other order is for Busch Light.  Why the hell didn’t someone think ahead, get a Busch Light keg?  Hey, I don’t do the ordering, NMP.

My manager comes behind the bar when it gets busy.  Guy comes up with a Nascar jacket, asks for a Busch Light.  She says, off the cuff, we have Busch Light in a Bud Light bottle!  It takes me a second to figure out her quip.  Nice.  He looks at her a little confused, then smiles, says, alright.  I’ll take that.

Wish I could take credit for that piece of gold, but that one goes to my manager.




Never Say One More

I’m working a banquet tonight, guy comes up, orders a Jim Beam and Diet.  I get it for him, he tips me a buck, takes off.  About 20 minutes later, he comes back up, asks for another one.  I get him another Jim Beam Diet, he tips a buck, takes off.

About half-hour later, Mr Jim Beam comes up, says, give me ONE more.  I say, hang on, hang on now.  Why you putting yourself up to a wall like that?  You’re just setting yourself up for failure.  No need to say one more.  You say one more, then you feel guilty coming back up, if you want another one.  It’s like in life.  Don’t make any promises, you won’t let anyone down, including yourself.  He laughs, says, ok.  Give me another one.

20 minutes later, Mr Jim comes back up to the bar, with an empty glass, sets it down,

And just smiles.
