Default Water Drinker @ Bar

We were @ a CC, yesterday afternoon, a single woman sat @ the bar next to my wife- when the bar tender asked what she wanted to drink- she asked for water and didn't order any food

This isn't fair to the bar tender who works for tips and it isn't fair to customers being denied a seat by a cheap skate

Perhaps she was just waiting for a table?

Not @ all, the place wasn't crowded( table wise), and she was there more than 30 minutes, when we left

I agree, but the simple solution is for the bar to charge her a drink price for the water.

Wow..........NBD.




If she ordered a coke, the tip would have been a quarter.

You left before she did and you really don't know that she didn't tip the bartender.

If you left before she did - how is it that you know she did not leave the bartender a tip?

For all you know she could have been an alcoholic and was just waiting for a table.

Why does she have to be an alcoholic? Why can't she be a person waiting for someone??
