Looking back at my past posts I've come to realize that I have been pretty critical of bartenders.
I have a very high respect for bartenders. It is very very difficult job and a good bartender is worth his/her weight in gold.
I have a desire to be a bartender, but I wouldn't want to do it half ass. If I was to do it I would want to devote all my time to it and I just can't do that right now.
I guess I have been so critical of some of the "bad" bartenders I have come in contact with because I'm jealous. I’m jealous that they are doing the thing that I love to do as a hobby, getting paid for it, but doing it poorly and without passion.
So to all those passionate, good bartenders out there... my hats off to you and know that my criticism is not directed at you.
