Working at a pub has taught me a lot about life, women, and myself.
Here are some of my observations and lessons, as a cook, from working at a pub:
You get to practice Game on servers and hostesses.
The pub I work at is close to a high school, a university, and a college, or what I like to call, “server/hostess farms.”
Young women from the ages of 16-24 are funnelled through the hiring process. The prettist ones usually get hired – regardless of how much experience they have.
I’ve had lots of crushes, some lays, and one girlfriend. If you practice your Game on the servers and hostesses you will most likely end up with some poon.
Feel free to say (pretty much) whatever you want.
Other than blatant, unwanted, awful, attention or grabbing, the females play along. They understand the back-and-forth banter.
If anyone was actually out of line or engaging in abuse, of course they would lose their job and have a possible criminal charge against them.
Women that work in restaurants/cafes/diners/pubs/etc. know the deal – they play along. They laugh at the older guys’ stupid jokes, giggle at the borderline sexual harassment, and deal with peoples’ bullshit behaviour and attitude. Wouldn’t you want a bigger tip (more money)?
That’s part of the gig. These women aren’t stupid. They know what’s up. That’s the way it is.
Of course I’m not saying they’re giving up their morals because some old guy said they look pretty.
OF COURSE you will be protected from actual abuse. There are policies, procedures, and action plans that are available and put in place if real abuse occurs.
Real restaurants and pubs are NOTHING close to an SJW safe space. You’ll be okay.
Hard work is rewarded.
“If you can’t stand the fire, get out of the heat.”
One guy I use to work with (also an old roommate) tried a shift at the pub in the kitchen. He complained about the heat, developed a “rash” (I never saw it), and never came back to work. He’s kind of a wanker.
Another time this fresh, new, right out of the college culinary program guy decided it was a good idea to take his shoes off and run them through the dish washer during a rush. A manager came back, saw it, and reamed him out in front of everyone. He was never seen or heard from again.
Finally (but there are more stories – feel free to ask) we use to have this kitchen manager that would get drunk as a skunk while cooking. After some detective work by us cooks, we found out that he was drinking “water” out of this water-bottle. Turns out it was vodka. He was also never heard from again.
If you work hard you will be rewarded with small praises, more money, and employment.
Small praises like, “Table 10 loved their steak” or “You guys killed it tonight, good job.” More money because you put in longer/more hours, which means the higher your tip-out will be ($$$). And unlike people that we call “skin waggons” (because all they’re good at is carrying skin around), if you put in the effort and work hard you will still have a job when you wake up the next morning.
Lets recap some of my observations from working in a pub:
- You get to practice Game all the time – your learning curve will skyrocket
- It’s shitlord friendly – SJWs need not apply
- Hard work is rewarded – you don’t need praise, but the extra money is always good
Young men should work in a pub to get some cool life experiences and also learn some basic cooking skills along the way.
Have you ever worked in a pub or restaurant?
