Male vs. Female Bartender: Who Has It Tougher?

Bartenders, what do you think?


Male and female bartenders both deal with difficult, yet different situations.

What do you do for a living? Some argue that those who work with numbers have the hardest, most mind-numbing jobs. On the other hand, since they’re always working with angry customers, others claim that those who work in customer service have it the worst.

Whatever your job may be, take a moment and picture this: that same job, on a normal day… but everyone else is drunk. Things were looking a little bit better before than they are now, aren’t they?

No matter how tough your job may be or what you have to deal with on a day-to-day basis, bartenders have to deal with everyone when they’re drunk. Therefore, we’re going to go ahead and say that they have it the worst.

Now, here’s the real question: Who has it tougher, male or female bartenders?

You could really spin this either way. On one hand, it’s fair to assume that women are hit on more often than men. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that men aren’t hit on, or that either party (both male and female customers) wouldn’t take action after a few too many cocktails. Whether that “action” may be trying to flirt their way into a free drink, or other, inappropriate things, this is something both sexes constantly have to deal with.

Moral of the story? Bartenders have to deal with drunk people 24/7, so no matter how you spin it, their job isn’t easy.
