I am the Sword in the Darkness... [Jul. 4th, 2009|05:03 am]
So ever since we changed our Bartender uniforms to all black, (black shirt, black pants, black shoes, black apron) I've started calling when a new server trains to become a bartender, "Taking the Black."

I've referred to the well as the "wall" on occasion, and asked newbies to recite things like "I am the sword in the darkness, I am the shield that guards the realms of men."

god I'm such a dork.

but an awesome one! If I had a bartender actually say any of that near me I would probably high-five him.

Please tell me the other bartenders are cool enough to get the joke.

Customers gather, and now my shift begins. It shall not end until I'm cut. I shall marry no bottles, hold no drinks, serve no children. I shall wear only what's spec, and share my tips. I shall live and die at my post. I am the glass in the darkness, I am the mixing tin on the well, I am the Sanitizer that burns against the skin, the last call that brings the dawn, the taxi horn that wakes the sleepers, The Checked ID that guards the chain of restaurants. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Shift, for this shift, and all the shifts to come.

Thus is the mindset of any who labor in the dark - on on third shift.

This is the coolest thing ...

That's the best "torture" of newbies I think I've ever seen.
