Bar none - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Bar none
Somebody pointed out yesterday that people might want to know when I was likely to be working behind the bar at the Carlton... I think this is a wee bit premature since it's not even definite yet, but never mind, too much information is better than none.

Anyway, I'm doing a trial shift a week tomorrow (that's the 21st). If I can do it, and if I don't hate it, I'll be added to their list. They've already got quite a lot of bar staff so I get the impression that I'm not likely to be needed very often -- most likely just covering occasional Fridays.

Anyway, I'll post here as soon as I know if/when I'm going to be working there, so you can all come and heckle if you want. Or, of course, avoid the place like the plague. :)

(Bear in mind though that I've never done any bar work before, so I'm likely to be concentrating too hard on not getting drinks/change/measures/orders wrong to have anything resembling a real conversation!)

This is true; I wouldn't even try to have a real conversation (from either side of the bar), it's far too easy to get involved in the conversation and then not pay enough attention to the other bits of the bar. Bar staff having conversations with their friends while ignoring the other customers who are waiting to be served is really annoying for the people waiting to be served...

Ghod yes. I promise I won't do that. :)

(I've had conversations with Terri over the bar but that's been when the pub's really quiet, and they're unlikely to need extra bar staff on a really quiet night...)
