Don't make Ryan Murphy bounce that ass

Working in the service industry is a bitch — the hours are long, the nights are late and the sober adults who turn into drunken babies are plentiful. Though some can hold their alcohol well and have a good time, others ruin the fun by getting sloppy and ignorant.

3) Ignorance: "Hey numbnutz, walking around with a blunt in your mouth in public? This ain't Amsterdam, and 'I thought it was cool in here' don't fly."

4) Rudeness: "Mouthing off to the bartenders after a night of stiffing them on every order, and then wondering why they have you on ignore. Toss them some love and see what happens."

5) Poppy: "Pinching Poppy's ass at the door. Go ahead, try it."
