Communicating can be hard, especially in loud, alcohol-soaked environments. Sometimes, bartenders get confused because we don’t understand what a guest wants. Other times, there are just fundamental differences between how we operate in the world. Here are 9 ways to confuse a bartender.

If you’re driving or your group isn’t drinking alcohol, of course, we get it. But, if you have already had a few drinks and a bartender offers an extra round or shots as a gesture of hospitality, we’re perplexed when you decline said offer. Our confusion isn’t out of judgement — we’re mostly in awe of your self-control.
