Monday Manners: Rule #29 | 10 Things You Should Never Say to a Bartender

1. I'll have my martini shaken, not stirred.
2. That's what she said.
3. Can I pay for half a glass of wine?
4. This drink is too strong.
5. This drink is too weak.
6. I'll get your tip the next time I come in.
7. Can I have ten dollars in quarters?
8. Here's how you make my drink.
9. Would you mind topping my drink off?
10. Can I get one on the house?


  1. Rule #1 shouldn't be on the list. It's a legitimate request.

  2. I agree with you. It is a legitimate request. However, it is usually used as a joke. "I'll have my beer shaken not stirred" or whatever. I don't mind if it's for real...only when it's used to be funny does it get on my nerves.

  3. What about $1 in quarters?

  4. $1 in quarters means parking meter.
    $10 in quarters means laundry mat.

    Parking meter = at least one drink
    Laundry mat = I'll never see you again
