Being a Bartender - Part II

Red's Reply: Thanks for the input on the bar girls. I thought the "coke-tail" waitresses were just working their way through school.

STEELE SEZ: Many waitresses ARE working their way through college. Few of them are in bars or clubs. I met Joanna when she was working at Bob's Big Boy three blocks from my house. She was going to college, majoring in math.

If you have a day or two a week you can work there, I say go for it. With all of the female customers and female employees, just follow the step-by-step instructions How to Date Young Women. Above all, be friendly but aloof and always maintain The Right Attitude. Bars and club workers socialize together on their days off and after closing time. They stay up until 7 or 8 in the morning drinking and doing speedy drugs at one of the co-workers homes. It didn't kill me to hang in those circles for about six months while I was figuring out being divorced. I won't kill you. Remember, the young women who work there think they are "inside" the "cool" universe and believe they are really on to something. 99% of them are going nowhere. 

RED'S RE-REPLY: Would a nice hotel or restaurant be better? O it's all the same mentality?  

STEELE SEZ: A cocktail waitress is usually not a college girl wherever she's cocktailing. If she's not into how "cool" and "hip" she is, she's waiting for a handsome, 35 year old millionaire driving a Red Porsche who will find her and take her away from all this. She thinks, just like most recently divorced and inexperienced men that bars are places to meet potential lifetime partners. In reality, bars and clubs are gathering spots for losers and people who cannot meet, talk with and date people from work, church, social clubs, service clubs, school, activist organizations.

You may have a shot at ONE of the waitresses, but that situation is worse than an office in that the catty competitiveness is doubly rampant among the women. If you screw up and make a move on a Rapo Player you're dead meat with all the others. Re-read Volume Two of How to Date Young Women for details on not making this FATAL mistake anyplace!
