    I'm sitting at the bar one of five customers and the bartender can't be troubled to walk down and ask me if I need a refill.

    You can't expect good service and people to be nice around here.

    These people wouldn't make it in the real world. I imagine that the hotel loses money on the bar.

    I slid my bottle to the edge of the bar. I'll be dammed if I'm going to walk ten feet down the bar and beg for a beer.

    With the markups on alcohol you don't have to sell that many drinks to be profitable.

    Yeah, that's pretty much the international signal for "I need another".

    This bartender is clearly independently wealthy and doesn't need a tip.

    I'm probably the best tipper of the five customers. I tip $2 for a $2. Happy hour beer. I know nobody's going to get wealthy off of that.

    they could probably smell the Texas on you. ask Brules and Kanye what kind of cologne is used in DC to hide your stench.

    You know, you go down to a quiet bar to let a little steam off and end up getting pissed off and leaving. I don't want to live in this kind of world.

    Dude, these people know me by name. I've been going there since March. It's in a hotel like place where the average person stays a couple of days.

    I made a loud harumph sound, grabbed the five I had laying on the bar and stormed out.
