Bartenders aren’t born, they’re made by spending time behind the bar. From being a person who is able to have small talk with anyone to preferring to work weekends, here are a few signs you’re ready to call yourself a bartender.
1. You can work a 14-hour day and not even feel it.
Long shifts are a badge of honor for bartenders. No one loves working a long-ass day, but 14 hours on your feet is weirdly less tiring than 14 hours behind a computer screen. It takes a while to adjust to standing for hours on end, but once you do, your legs adapt. A pair of unattractive, non-slip work clogs really helps this process.
