If you want to avoid ruining your bartender’s evening, a pub worker has revealed the rude comments and actions that a customer should never say or do when at the bar.
These include avoiding mentioning you own past bar experience, placing finished chewing gum in your empty glass, or clicking your fingers at a staff member to get their attention that you’re next in line.
Speaking to The Daily Record, Claire Twist, event bartender and bar training upskill at the Off to Work Edinburgh academy shared some of the worst blunders punters can make when ordering their drinks.
She insisted a good customer should never boast about their past bar experience if a bartender isn’t preparing a beverage the way they desire.
Instead, it’s best to offer any tips you might have before they start making the drink to avoid any annoyance.

Elsewhere, trying to get a staff member’s attention when you’re at the bar is a big no-no, with Claire insisting many workers will already know who’s next to be served.
‘I think clicking fingers at a bartender is just plain rude. The same goes for leaning right across the bar, trying to get served next,’ she said.
‘Trust that the bartender serving is a professional, and will be keeping an eye on who’s next to be served. I teach new bartenders that a quick ‘I’ll be right with you’ can help reassure customers that they’ve been seen.’
She also explained that chewing gum on an evening out and then leaving it in your empty glass should definitely be avoided.
The bartender said: ‘Either people don’t realise that someone has to put their hand in to collect the used gum, or they don’t care. One simple rule: if you wouldn’t do it at home, don’t do it in a bar!’
Claire also suggested that a huge order that takes five minutes or more to remember should instead be penned on a note to be passed to the staff worker.
Finally, she told how ordering drinks in a group is easier on the bartenders preparing your beverages.

Kat Kamalani, from the US, worked on planes for six years, and she posted a TikTok video in which she said it’s not babies who annoy the crew, but rather the people who complain about the babies.
The social media star and mother-of-two explained there’s nothing worse than this type of complaint because it makes both the parents and the staff uncomfortable.
‘I promise you, there’s nothing that irritates us more as a flight attendant when people complain about a baby crying,’ Kat said in the video.
‘DON’T even ask to be moved to a different seat, no one wants that baby to stop crying more than that parent. So if you’re travelling, bring noise-cancelling headphones, or maybe ask the parent if they need help.’
The short video was viewed more than 1.4million times and thousands commented on the topic agreeing.
