No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

I started this blog to share my thoughts and experiences while bartending. I work a lot and during my work, I meet a lot of interesting people. Not to brag, but I have met people from all over the world with whom I have discussed countless topics. To be honest, most of these discussions involved drunk people, but there were also people who gave me a lot of valuable information and relevant advice that made me believe in humanity again. And of course, I’ve encountered generous customers as well who knew how to tip and appreciate my job.

Let me tell you a story about what happened in Esperanza once. I overheard two guys sitting at the bar talking that the girl opposite them was flirting. I knew those girls. They are quite frequent in the bar. Nice girls who work together on the opposite side of the street. Both of them are hairdressers and come to the bar after work to blow some steam over a glass of wine. One of them is from Romania and the other is from Bulgaria. These girls were not particularly flirtatious, but one of these guys was determined to flirt. I knew how this situation would end, but I stood there and observed.

One of the guys was wearing a nice sports jacket with jeans and sneakers. He was obviously drunk. The other one was wearing a suit and obviously came to the bar directly from work. My boss later told me that he bought air purifiers for his home from this guy. Nonetheless, the drunk guy with the sports jacket made the first move and approached the girls. He introduced himself with a sleazy line, which was more than enough for me to realize that this was going to be a disaster. The girls being nice enough gave him “Sorry, we are here just for a drink” and shut him down. The guy came back to the bar and said “Give us two more whiskeys”. His friend was not satisfied with his drunk friend’s demand but nevertheless decided to continue.

Before they finished their drinks, the guy with the suit went to the toilet, leaving his friend alone. The drunk guy stood up on the chair, started singing, and dropped his jeans to pee over the bar! Before we knew what happened he was finished. The girls and the rest of the attendees were shocked. We had to throw the drunk guy out, but the funny part was when his friend came back from the toilet and realized that his friend was gone. Believe it or not, he went to the girls to ask about his friend. But the moment these girls saw him, they immediately started laughing. Poor guy, I felt sorry for him. He obviously wanted to do a good deed, but as they say in my home town – no good deed goes unpunished.
