I get this bartender a lot, her name’s Barbara, and she’s probably in her late thirties. long brown hair in a constant ponytail, small eyeglasses, very little makeup and a big bubbly demeanor. Very flirty. Complimentary. I ask her about work and she tells me about difficult customers and crazy days but always with a smile. Pleasant. She asks me in return about my own work but I notice lately that everything I say takes twice as long as I planned so I keep it brief and vague and she seems content with this. Maybe she doesn’t really care to know or figures I’d rather not talk about it. She has this intuition about how and when to talk about which thing and why.
I wanna make more money so I can leave bigger tips for the Barbaras of the world.
