Who: Customer and bartender
What : Uncomfortably loud and angry conversation over the bar as bar sitters glanced around nervously and pretended not to pay attention.
When: Tonight around 10
Why: So the customer came in, sat down on the other side of my friend and and started giving crap loudly to Bartender A for something that Bartender A said he didn't say.
There were high volume accusations of embellishment and denial.
Customer finally ordered a drink but insisted that Bartender B serve him just as Bartender A sets the drink down in front of him.
Bartender A scoops up the drink from in front of customer and takes it away, with a loud "Fuck you!" as he goes.
Customer lingers awkwardly and finally exits.
Tension ends; crowd breaks into smiles and eagerly discusses amongst ourselves.
The meat loaf and garlic mashed potatoes with broccolini were really quite tasty.
