This Is a First For Me
He says I will have another beer and she ask me if the bottle on the left hand side of the wine list is the same as the one she had by the glass. I am thinking automatically it is but I go to the bar and check it out anyway. I don't know maybe she is wondering about the vintage or something.
I return to tell her it is the same wine as the glass she had just finished as the bottle we sell on the wine list she is asking me about.
She then ask me if she can replace the glass she has just drank with a bottle. I look at her like are you for real ?
She wanted to forget the glass she had just drank and take it off the bill so she can start with a bottle instead. Needless to say I said we couldn't do that..
Makes you wonder , doesn't it?
