I must admit to breaking a couple of these rules when I were young and stupid. Because I didn't go to bars much, I didn't understand how to order drinks, what part of the barfront is only for servers placing orders, etc. Most other things I've been fine on.
One exception: AFTER having worked in food service, I became a regular at a bar. When the place was hoppin' and all I wanted was a coffee refill, I would sometimes help myself. Keeping an eye on the bartender and the cook, to make sure I didn't get in their way or upset their rhythm. The barkeep knew what I was doing and she was fine with it.
But I wish I'd read this when I was 20.
