I had a customer order “jack and coke short, more jack than coke.” Right away I knew I wasn't getting a decent tip, of course. So I rang his drink in as a double, but Dolly whipped out a tall glass.
“Wait, I need that a short, please.”
Dolly froze, bottle lifted, and stared at me with huge wide eyes. “I can't do that.”
“It's against the law, doubles aren't supposed to be short! They have to be in a tall glass. It's illegal.”
And this is a woman who claims she was a GM for TGIFriday's (and made $150,000 a year – yeah fucking right), and thinks she's the best bartender we have.
