So me and the girl go to Pappisitos last night. For those who don't know, its a super popular Tex-Mex place here in Houston, probably among other places. Anyways, the wait for a table is long. I think no big deal, I'll just get a beer at the bar. But the bar is full - every seat is taken. So I'm behind someone, waving at the bartender, trying to speak up to get their attention, but its like they totally ignore someone who is not sitting at the bar. And it wasn't just me - there were like 3 other people trying to get drinks as well, all standing behind someone and trying to get the bartenders' (yes there were a few) attention to buy a drink. But no luck.
I've noticed this many times elsewhere - very common occurance. WTF is wrong with these bartenders? They are causing the place to lose out on sales big time. If I were an owner I would shit can them. Do they get busy and just ignore everyone not sitting at the bar to try not to get overwhelmed? Just freaking weird.
