Well, nowadays..out here in the west having bartended for 11 years I can honestly say that they have forgotten quite a few of those precious rules. But then I guess,like everyone (oh yeah..even ME!) mix in a little alcohol and first thing to go is the mind, then they forget the manners and next thing you know your throwing them out before the fight starts..(or if its a busy night you let it go and have someone else take care of it)(once a fight starts then the bar just gets busier why is that?) I really wish that they could all read that out here in the western states.. Ok and after they read it then I guess the next step is Heed it.. yeah right CnB
