What It’s Like To Work In a Bar as a Student Vs as a Graduate

“I AM HAVING THE BEST TIME” vs “I AM HAVING THE WORST TIME”

1. Making cocktails as a student.

“Oh my god so much fun, best party trick ever. I’m going to drink all the cocktails and become a bar wizard!”

But as a graduate…

“If you order one more Long Island iced tea I swear I’m putting Tabasco in it. Why not order a pint like a normal person?! Oh and you’re ordering one at a time? Great.”

2. Going out after work as a student.

“Isn’t working in a bar the same as going out? I’m joining all my friends on the other side of the bar soon anyway!”

But as a graduate…

“No, I’m back in tomorrow at 11am and I need to do laundry. No.”

3. Drinking at work as a student.

“Jagerbombs all round, we need the energy don’t we?”

But as a graduate…

4. Closing up as a student.

“Let’s talk about all the drunk people here tonight, how funny was that guy who fell face first into the floor??”

But as a graduate…

“I did not spend three years at university to wear marigolds and clean up other people’s sick.”

5. Seeing your friends out drinking in your bar whilst you’re working as a student.

“HI GUYS. Where are you going after this? Yeah that’s £2.40 for 4 pints and 4 jagers!”

But as a graduate…

“I hate you, I’m jealous, I’m stuck working whilst I watch you have a good time.”

6. Getting invites to go out at weekends when you work in a bar as a student.

“Nothing happens at weekends when you’re a student anyway, so I’m working!”

But as a graduate…

“Working all weekend, as usual, can’t come out. Sorry.”
