I met an old friend at the local Carrabba's for drinks. I ordered a "Knob Creek in a snifter". The bartender, who looked to be maybe mid to late 20's, but he was working as bartender, looked at me and said "excuse me"...I repeated exactly my order. He then said.."I don't know what you're saying...what is a snifter"? I think he was expecting that I was playing a joke of some sort on him. He later admitted that is was his first night behind the bar, but still, I'm pretty sure that even before I was old enough to drink out of a snifter.... I knew what a snifter was. Do I expect too much from society?
