Bartenders Share Their Tips For… More TipsMany people earn less than the minimum wage so turn to the next best thing for some extra cash, their customers.

For bartenders the generosity of customers they’re serving helps pay their bills and keeps a roof over their heads. But sometimes people don’t want to shell out extra money even for a job well done, so some bartenders have a few tricks to help loosen your purse strings.

According to the job resource site Ladders.com, they start by trying to get you to open a tab. This can guarantee a second or third drink and a tip. Small gestures such as writing thank you on the check is another psychological maneuver to get you to reciprocate the kindness.

Sometimes the bartender will tell you they’ve invented a special cocktail for you. Truth is, that special cocktail is something already invented but not on the menu. Of course teasing and flirting are common ways to score a big tip.

So consider tipping the person who’s pouring your drinks, because if you’re considered a tightwad, that cheap label will get around.
