Darlings, as well as being a sales and marketing exec forever, did you know that La Diva was a also a bartender for years and years? It’s true and I did it for so long that at times it felt like a prison sentence! I’ve worked in a variety of establishments but as I got older and more experienced, I moved away from the ever-thumping night clubs and pubs and began working in fine dining restaurants as a cocktail bartender. Yes, darling a cocktail bartender, NOT A MIXOLOGIST. (La Diva LOATHES that word and feels that anyone that calls themselves one is a true WANKER!)
In any case, La Diva LOVES her cocktails as well as copious amounts of chardy and champers (of course) and was traipsing lazily around the Net looking for fellow libations lovers when I stumbled across these hilarious videos on You Tube. They made me think of times past when I felt exactly like the bartender in each and every one of these videos! Ahhh, memories!
Produced by “Generation Awesome” these dark and cynical videos explore the secret desires of your local bartender. They are titled “The Bartender HATES you!” and include 12 videos in the series. Numbers 9 and 5 in particular were enjoyed immensely by myself and DJ Nevah L8, who also dallied a bit as a barkeep in a journalist’s pub back in Sydney. You can check them out here.
Enjoy, darlings, and remember to not only TIP your bartender but stop being so darn annoying to the poor dear! Happy Friday!
