Each afternoon I sit at the bar and take care of the day-to-day business of the bar.  That usually entails dealing with a wide range of things, from overseeing inventory, placing orders, meeting with vendors, putting out "little fires" on occasion, etc.

While this is going on, we're open for business, which means that you get a wide array of characters coming in and out of the bar.  Many of them are regulars and they'll say hello and make conversation and that's all well and fine.  Once in while, you'll get that one person who insists on chatting with you, even if you're in the middle of placing orders, eating lunch or talking with a vendor, which drive me nuts.  That thought came to mind today when this particular person came in.  He's one of our old school regulars who loves to hear himself talk.  Harmless for the most part, but he has to have the last word in which once again,  drives me nuts.  And if I'm the only one in the bar, chances are pretty good that I won't get any work done, which..... yes, drives me nuts.

So every once in a while I'll have to put him in his place.  He'll get snippy and pout but eventually he'll come around and the whole thing starts again.  In any case, now you know why the blog is late today.
Speaking of which....
