Bartenders…I don’t know how you do it

You’re constantly dealing with unruly customers, listening to the sob stories of all kinds of people, AND you always have people trying to buy you shots.

So how do they get out of throwing back a few with the folks sitting at the bar?

A bartender named Benji shared his job hack for dealing with how he deals with customers wanting to take shots with him.

Take a look at what he had to say.

And folks shared their thoughts about this on TikTok.

One person said,

“I have a decoy bottle of whiskey behind my bar that’s always just filled with ice tea.”

And another added,

“I had a decoy bottle of ‘vodka’ that was just water for this exact occasion. Past 1 pm everyone wants to do shots with the bartender.”

One TikTokker commented,

“I always point at the camera by my bar n say ‘oh the blue light means my boss is watching.’ The blue light is always on.”

An individual said,

“Well, now we know why the bartender NEVER gets d**nk but we still do.”

And another viewer commented,

“My friend would put water in the shot glass and pretend it was tequila. And she’d make the best faces to play along.”
