Brilliant, I Say

I was reading an article today about how to get served in a bar. I guess the old "standing there like an idiot waving cash" technique doesn't work all that well. Never did, really.

So, there's this:

"Here's one subtle, calculated technique that can be highly effective...When the bartender is scanning the sea of eager faces at the bar and trying to work out who is next, point to the person next to you. They will get served and then usually you will be next, the bar staff having acknowledged your impeccable etiquette."

Now, that's just smart. I'm going to try it. Often, I suspect.
