Time to raise the bar. If you walk the straight and narrow, and can toe that line on the bar, then maybe these straight-laced puns are for you to. So grab a pint and celebrate, but make sure you stay the course.

'You need to leave': Customer gets kicked out of a bar after he asked an entitled woman to remove her service dog from the bar top

When a fight between two customers breaks out in a place like a restaurant or a bar, there are a few ways in which that scenario could end. Either both customers get kicked out, one of them gets kicked out, or none of them. In my time as a waitress, I had to ask a few customers to leave the restaurant, and it was never a pleasant experience. Most people just won't accept that they are in the wrong, no matter how much you try to calmly explain to them what is the problem. This Reddit story is ac…

'We take care of those who take care of us': Local bar loses half its clientele after doorman confiscates Navy Seal's military ID while refusing him entry

I have had the privilege of getting to know soldiers over the years, and when I say that their bond is unbreakable, I mean that they will stop at nothing to ensure that the people they love are taken care of. Whether they like it or not, they are now a family, and families stick together through good times and bad. There are many stories, like the one below, about troops sticking together. However, the story below is of an active-duty trooper who was denied entry into a local bar shortly after…

'I knew this would be my last shift': Bartender gets disrespected by a pompous manager, rage quitting and ‘leaving her notice’ in the form of sabotage

Being a lady bartender isn't easy. You have to pretend to be interested in every patron's woes, while also being detached enough to avoid stalkerish behavior. During every shift, bartenders deal with antagonizers, party-meisters, and worst of all womanizers. But it's all worth it for the tips right? That is until you realize the worst offender of on-shift mockery is coming from your general manager.

'You won't get away without paying me': New owner refuses to give employee his moneys worth, employee finds a creative way of getting it all back

'You won't get away with not paying me': New owner refuses to give employee his money's worth, employee finds a clever way to get paid anyway

From roughly the age of 15 to 22 (fresh out of college), we are expected to accept any position, as long as someone will hire us, regardless of the duties and responsibilities. Hold your horses; what I mean to say is that every position, within 'normal bounds', is acceptable. As a result, I believe we can all agree that for nearly ten years, we have been changing jobs frequently in the hopes of finding one that won't be emotionally or physically taxing. The jobs differ according to age, prefere…

'I was told it's highly unprofessional to be drunk when I am off on the weekend': Boss calls employee at 9 p.m. on a Saturday, scolds him for drinking with friends

'I was told it's highly unprofessional': Boss calls employee at 9 p.m. on a Saturday, scolds him for drinking with friends

I'm fortunate not to have a job where I have to be on call during the weekends, so when Friday evening hits, my laptop is closed and stowed away until Monday morning. That should've been the case for this OP too, but unfortunately, it wasn't. He was out on a Saturday night celebrating his friend's engagement when he got a call at 9 p.m. from his boss. Considering she was calling his personal phone, not his work phone, he assumed it was an emergency, so he answered...

'People assume sound doesn't travel over the bar': 10+ wild stories as told by the bartenders who overheard them

You know that bartenders have seen plenty of nonsense they wish they never saw. Of course, it's not their fault. People are absolute fools in these establishments and have zero idea that sound does, in fact, travel. On top of that, customers also seem to forget that bartenders do not suddenly become invisible after they have served you a drink. They are right there with you as you confess your biggest regrets, secrets, and gossip to your buddy. These customers clearly forgot where they were as…

'I poured the shot in his shoes': Creeper gets what he deserves after pestering a woman on a date all night; ends up wearing the drink he insisted on buying her

Creepy dudes at a bar rarely catch a hint. You could literally tell them to their face that you're uninterested and the persistent vultures just think you're being coy. If only there were some audaciously insulting way that the victims of creepy bar flies could get payback against their leering peers? In this story, there definitely is.

'I poured him the cheap $8 wine... the rest of the day': Barman gets petty payback against a guest after he takes 'open bar' way too literally and climbs behind the bar to steal drinks

The first thing you learn when you turn 21 is that you're never (EVER) allowed to go behind the bar. Unless it's a dire emergency, the zone behind the bar is a sacred, untouchable place– it's for the barman and the barman alone. It's the ultimate bar-hopping faux pas to invade the bartender's area. Period.

'I gave them a 1-star review': Local bar owner claps back at customer's 1-star review, customer gets even

1-star reviews tend to shed light on the entitled and overly demanding customers of this world, but every so often, there's a justified one. Here, we have a customer who went out for drinks with his wife in Lisbon for a rare occasion considering how expensive nightlife can be in their city. Let's just say that they did not get the drinks they ordered. His wife ordered a Long Island Iced Tea and received a Coke; the Redditor ordered a Moscow Mule and received a spiked Ginger Ale. Close, but no c…

‘I got offered my old job back with another $1.50/hr thrown in’: Bartender quits on the spot when his approved vacation time gets revoked, management begs him to come back

Money is the only reason that people are grinding everyday at work– and what's the best thing to spend that money on? Traveling. When you get that paycheck every two weeks, it's hard to stop yourself from imagining a beach somewhere with your name on it– or in this case, it's tough not to imagine two tickets to see your favorite sports team with your long-distance girlfriend.

'You shouldn't be here': Bartender calls in sick, but boss forces him to come to work anyways; gets saved by boss's mother who pulls the 'mom' card to send him home

Being sick as a little kid isn't so bad because you have Mom around to feed you soup, press her hand on your forehead, and tuck you in for a nap. If she says you're too sick to go out, you're too sick to go out. As an adult, you're forced to gauge your own illness, which, as mother always said, means you're going to be sick for weeks. In this case, OP tried to do the right thing by calling in sick to work, but his unyielding boss wouldn't allow it.

'I'd be paid $6 an hour': Bar manager rebels against lazy boss who gives him an ultimatum, gets fired because he refused to work extra hours below minimum wage

Have you ever worked for tips before? When you work a job where tips are your main source of income, that becomes the primary focus of each day capitalizing on how to get more tips. In some cheapskate states, restaurants are allowed to pay you LESS than minimum wage because it's expected that you'll be making more in tips on top of that, thus making restaurant work a minimum wage job again. * huge eye roll * As everyone knows, that's not guaranteed...
