When the guy came back from the bathroom and noticed that his date had more drinks, he was like, "Can you help me?" At that point, she ran off to the bathroom. I think the guy was going to wait for her to come out and then split. But after a while, we figure out that she had passed out in the bathroom. We had to get a female worker to open the door, and she was found passed out on the toilet. This is still brunch time, by the way. So as this lady was getting physically taken out, she was grabbing drinks off of tables and out of people’s hands, which was a pretty bold move. Eventually, we got her outside and ordered an Uber.
A year later I was bartending at a completely different place. I heard this voice, but I couldn't quite place it. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw someone’s hand grab a tip off the bar. I turned around, and, lo and behold, there she was. She was on another date and I cut her off immediately. Before we threw her out, we checked her pockets and she just had wads of crumpled-up bills stuffed in there."
