It Isn’t Easy, Being A Bartender
“I had one client, an English girl, who had a dressing gown that looked just like a street dress. She would sit at the bar, and after a few drinks would pull it wide open, leaving herself stark naked underneath. ‘Oh, Jimmie,’ she would say, ‘I am so careless. I forgot to get dressed.’ I cannot count the times I have had to wrap that dress around her and tie it securely. You see it isn’t easy, being a bartender.” This Must be the Place: Memoirs of Jimmie the Barman, by Morrill Cody, 1937.
