Up Chuck

Up Chuck
Well it seems a lot of my stories involve people throwing up and the events that happen afterwards. I mind as well continue this tradition and tell another like story.
This story involves four guys from England.  They were visiting the states on vacation or something and attended my bar for a good time.  They mostly drank beer and as the night progressed they evolved to shots.  Three of the four guys were fine and able to hold their liquor (at least it seemed) and the fourth one I should have been more careful with.  Towards the end of the night he had an “I’m ok but if I take another shot I may be done for” look on his face.  Noticing this I was hesitant about serving him any further.  I stepped away from the bar for a second and the group ordered a round of shots from the other bartender (I should have warned him before I left).  By the time I got back they all had shots in hand and ready to take them.  What happened next almost caused “me” to vomit.
So after they took their shots I helped another guest and not even five minutes later the other bartender says to me, “I’m not going back down there, you have a mess to clean up.” Dumbfounded I walked back down there to investigate what he was referring to.  You remember the guy that looked suspect?  Yeah him, this SOB had the nerve to throw up all over the bar top!  I mean it was covered, it was so bad that it made it to the other side on to the beer cooler.  You better believe he was escorted out “immediately.”  That’s one thing I can’t stand it’s one thing to vomit in a trash can, toilet, bushes, etc. it’s another to vomit on the bar top where peoples drinks and hands have to touch.  That stuff carries diseases and all kinds of other disgusting things.  I absolutely refused to touch or come close to it, thank goodness we have door people who clean up that sort of thing.  It must’ve taken the guy thirty minutes to clean and sanitize the area, and after he cleaned it I sprayed it again with more sanitizer (just in case).
Your body will tell when you have had enough all you have to do is listen and not over indulge in alcohol.  It’s embarrassing to vomit in public and isn’t fun for your friends who have to carry you home.   I hate to sound cliché but drink responsibly and be safe.

            These stories are real accounts, so if you plan to drink and have a good time do so responsibly. Remember to call a cab or a friend because the cost of a DWI is way more than a $20 cab ride home. Also, if you plan or happen to take someone home use protection. For two reasons, one there are many STD’s floating out there and it only takes one to ruin your life or that of others. The second reason is because a $3 condom is less expensive then 18 years of raising a child. If you're interested in becoming a bartender or want to learn more about bartending visit
