"Do I need to call 911?"
Wood (address and info)
“You always get those typical ones, ‘Did you fall from the sky?’ Or the occasional corny/creative one like, ‘I don’t know why your name isn’t on that bottle because you’re the finest reserve.’ But a couple years ago I had someone come up to the bar with a cup of melted ice and said, ‘Hey, we have an issue here? You need to step away from the bar?’ Thinking there was something wrong, I immediately thought I needed to call 911. Then they told me, ‘You’re melting all the ice.’ Yikes.”
You can’t catfish a catfish (or can you?)

“The creepiest or most bizarre time I got hit on was when I was working a Saturday morning, and these two guys were in. Super chill. We were watching Catfish and just talking about if we got catfished.
"One of the guys left me his number saying, ‘You don't know which one left you this number so now YOU are being catfished.’”
This bar is NOT a swingers club

“I had just started working at my current bar job, and one of the first weeks I waited on a normal middle-aged couple. I didn't talk to them a whole lot, but when they left they had left their hotel room key in the checkbook along with a substantial tip.
"When I told the next bartender, he told me that only a few days before, another, different couple had also left a hotel room key, and seemed to be lingering around to see if he would take it from them before they left. He saw them put the key in the book with the check and decided not to pick it up until they left to avoid the awkward conversation that would follow.
"I was under the impression I may have been hired on at someplace that also catered to swinging couples there for a second. Almost a year later, another co-worker received a hotel room key as well, only it was from a table of about four different girls and he couldn't tell which one it was from. None of us took them up on it, for the record.”
