    @AngryRedhead - these videos come from a series called Bar Etiquette NO-NOs and they're done in a cheeky, somewhat funny manner as a means of educating the general public on how to order drinks at the bar. I usually explain how to order properly at the end of each of the videos.

    I have tons more videos and articles on my site ( explaining the "real" world of bartending.

    I obviously should add something to the write-up as people are taking them a little too seriously.

    Obviously bartenders should never say these things to customers.

    Thanks for subscribing - I'll be uploading more of the how-to-bartend videos soon.

    I'm seeing a theme with these tips, but I think it would be helpful to step it back a notch and honestly explain how complicated ordering can be such as what it means to order from the well, what a tall is, etc.  I understand there are LOTS of things to vent about while working at a bar, but I have a feeling there are LOTS of people who genuinely would like to know how to order a drink properly at a bar.  So what SHOULD people do at a bar?  What SHOULD people know about ordering?  It's complicated, confusing stuff for most people.
