the three most annoying things customers do

- could i have an [inaudible] of [inarticulate], please?
- i'm sorry? a pint of stella, did you say?
- that's right.
- no, mate, i asked for a bottle, not a pint.

(putting down two pints)
- that's the carling, and that's the fosters
- [vacuous inattention]
(five minutes later, when i'm serving someone else)
- oi, mate, which one's the carling?

most annoying of all:
- back in the 1950's, when i was a young man[sic], the barmen would add everything up in their heads and never make a mistake. you wouldn't be able to do anything if you didn't have those electronic tills.

Heh. Where do you work? A pub?
