Today I got a call from the manager asking me would I do a few hours as they were stuck for staff.
So I've just got in after the 7 till finish shift.
It's a great bar. As its so tiny, you get to meet and talk to interesting people all the time.
I met two ex police from the UK who now work in insurance. I met a man who works for big tobacco. He does exactly the same job as that guy in Thank You For Smoking. Evil stuff.
For the last hour I was unable to avoid watching a couple at the bar get very physical with each other. They needed a room badly. I had no where to look. She was very very drunk. She was drinking her pint of beer with a straw!
Apart from all, I was offered a drink twice! I managed to say no both times. I think I deserve a back slap for that.
I remember my time working in bars full time. Those after work drinks with the rest of the staff were so rewarding.
Tonight a friend I haven't seen in a while dropped in as I closed up. He's never been the type that has needed to drink; he can just as easy go without it that go with it.
So instead we had a couple of cups of tea and some chocolate biscuits. What a lock in!!!
