So I was frequenting a local establishment last evening, when I went up to the bar to order a beverage. I asked the kind bartender if she could perhaps change the channel to the World Series game, and she replied with "Oh, are the Brewers playing tonight?"
I was dumbfounded by the question, responding simply with "Uh, no". I mean, come on, if you are working at a bar that has many televisions and to which people come to drink and watch sports, the bartenders should have a basic knowledge of what's going on, at least with the local teams. I was actually kind of offended. She didn't get a tip.
