We have been running out of glassware non-stop for the last couple of weeks and I clearly wasn’t thinking it could be anyone stealing it, until a customer asked me “ is it ok if I take this glass with me?” My response was sure it’s $4.00 or 4 for $12! I informed the guy it was a great deal, only for him to come back with, “ well I just wanted to take it?”
I first thought he was joking and I started to laugh but he didn’t. What in the world?… Yes, go ahead, we certainly don’t pay for the glasses, please take one, in fact, go ahead and take four… I mean they’re free, right?! WRONG! We pay for the glassware in [ the pub ] just like you pay for the glasses that are in your kitchen cupboard. Is it ok for your dinner guests to walk out of your house with a glass or two? Of course not.
If you REALLY want some free glassware, I have a solution for you. The minute that one of us drops a glass on the floor, feel free to grab a broom and pick up the pieces to glue together. Resourceful AND crafty!
I know our glassware is really awesome but as tempting as it might be to slide that lovely pint glass into your bag, we ask that you don’t. We will gladly wrap it up for you, put it in a to-go bag and add it to your tab.
