We all annoy our friends from time to time. Whether it’s your friend in finance who’s always going on about credit card points or your teacher buddy who loves to over-explain, our professions mold our personalities. Bartending is no different. Here are seven things that bartenders do that piss off their non-bartender friends.
1. We always overtip.
I’m not sure why friends get so offended by this one, but I’ve gotten in more fights about overtipping than almost any other topic. Bartenders usually tip at least 20 percent when they go out. We can’t help it. We believe in the tipping golden rule: Tip onto others as you would like to be tipped. We don’t mind throwing in a few extra bucks, but for some reason, it makes our friends feel like cheapskates.
