Just a bit of a random question, but I would be keen to hear everyone's opinions on this.
I was out for dinner the other night at the pub with a girlfriend of mine, and we thought we would have a drink or two before dinner, and sat at a back table in the bar room,
there were three really, really drunk guys sitting at the bar, being stupid, then all of a sudden the barmaid is taking money from these guys to slap them in the face.
So one of the three guys paid the barmaid $50 to slap his mate across the face, and she was hitting them pretty hard too.
There were an older couple sitting at the next table and I have to say they were quite horrified, they told us they were skipping dinner and intended to complain. I felt quite sorry for them, they were really lovely people and really were disgusted. The man asked me and my friend if this is how young girls behave these days.
I understand fun and mucking around as much as the next person, and they were silly enough to ask for a slap in the face, and they were silly enough to pay her.... but having worked in pub myself, I can not imagine ever doing this myself, or if I did, I could not imagine getting away with it.
Im not sure on the rules, but is was not a good look seeing her pocket all this money, and it got rather uncomfortable after a while of her slapping them in the face. I am not to sure how management would feel if the older couple did end up complaining.
In the end, we moved to the bistro and had a good time and went home.
Just wanting opinions, as after talking to my friend, she really found it funny and a good laugh, I personally found it a little off
