I can bar tend; I’ve got the boobs

Yes, you read right.  This chick comes in every week.  Decent bar attitude.  Great tipper.  Always speaks but she said something the other day that made me raise an eyebrow.

Yeah, this is Madison WI and we’ve got cornbread er, brat fed females with tits for days but it takes more than a hefty & perky pair of jugs to tend a bar.  Oh I’m sure she does fine at the house parties, but mingling with the general public is a different story.

There’s a bit more to tending bar than just tippin’ the Tap.  You have to be personal.  You have shut your mouth and LISTEN to your patrons who come in.  You have to have some knowledge on the products you carry so that you’re able to suggest something when someone happens to want something different.  And then some.

There’s an abundance of boobs in this here college town and it amazes me; if I remember correctly it takes a 3.2 GPA + community service and more to get in here.  But, the behavior and persona of some of these people, even those in Grad school act like Vanessa from the Cosby show in her girlfriends liquor cabinet.

For a smart business owner, it takes more than cleavage.  It takes speed, accuracy, neatness, street smarts and those WITHOUT a drinking issue to really ‘put it to work’…
