Me and some peeps went to a bar the other night and it seems like every time I order drinks at a bar I feel stupid.
I understand the whole "bar etiquette" in terms of.. know the right terms, know what you want, etc. But bartenders are such pretentious assholes about what drinks people order.
Like every bartender I know (and I know a LOT) seems to expect all their patrons to have an encyclopedic knowledge of what drinks are and are not socially acceptable, how to order etc.
Am I the only one who notices and hates this? So what if I like blue Hawaiians.. amirite?

Bar tenders are pretentious ass holes. Excuse me, you make drinks, for dollar tips, you're not a doctor. You're right.1

Coming from a bartender... most are lazy and like to make simple drinks and make what they have readily available to them. Or they tend to be assholes to females because girls typically go for fruity mixed drinks. Or come into the bar asking (what's good or can you make something sweet but not this flavor or what do you recommend... surprise me). Asking for a blue Hawaiian, mojito, martini or a mule drink requires more work. I don't mind though... I like creating new stuff. However guys order drinks it's a typical jack and coke, rum and coke, scotch etc. quick and easy.0
