If you like to drink, chances are high you've either been cut off from a bar or witnessed someone get cut off from a bar. An Ask Reddit thread popped up the other day asking bartenders to share their favorite "you've been cut off" stories from thirsty patrons who drank too much. Hundreds of stories were collected. Here are 15 of the very best.
Since every Bro has a story, feel free to share your very best "You've been cut off" story in the comments.
Ordered a shot. Took said shot. Threw it up into shot glass. Took shot again.
-Yeah, you're done.
A buddy of mine on his birthday did a shot, threw up in his mouth but fought it. A puke/snot mixture starts dribbling out his nose. Bartender immediately tells him to leave....via the back entrance because he was too big a disgrace to leave via the front door.
I'm in Vegas, playing poker at MGM. I tell the bartender to bring me two drinks every time she comes out, drop one off to me first and I'll finish it before she brings me the second. I tip well, this works, and I get very drunk very fast. I'm normally a pretty good card player, but for some reason, on this day, I could do no wrong. I swear I won a pot once when I had one of my hole cards wrong. So I'm drunk, young, cocky, and begin talking shit. Like, a LOT of shit, to all the other players. Eventually, a pit boss comes over quickly grabs me, makes me pick up my chips and has me walked out. When I ask why, he explains to me that one of the people I was taunting at the table was not the kind of guy you want to do that to, and that I was pretty close to getting into a lot more trouble than I could handle.
tl;dr Kicked out of a casino at 6pm in Vegas, probably had my life saved
I was out drinking with a friend and we had too much. Our waiter was a rotund guy, and funny as fuck all night. Finally, he sat down next to my friend and asked if she thought he was handsome. She was polite and said "of course!" To which he replied "you're cut off." We paid, and also gave him a 40% tip and called for a taxi. Awesome night.
I bartended weddings in a hotel ballroom in a smaller rural town.
One particular wedding the groom and groomsmen went out to the parking lot to shotgun beers that were stashed in the groom's truck. The wedding party had already cashed in 4 kegs by 9:30 pm and the father of the bride, who was paying for it all, declined buying any more.
All of the groomsmen came back in and went back into the reception/dance. The bride storms out to the parking lot when she sees everyone but her new hubby return, then comes back in red in the face, make up smeared and bawling her eyes out...then screams at her bridesmaids to "Go get her out of that truck!"
Bridesmaids go out and drag another bridesmaid in to the hotel bathrooms and help her get back into her dress properly. Groom strolls up to the bar and orders a shot of Jack while tucking his shirt in.
We closed the bar at that exact moment.
It truly was unbelievable to watch it unfold. Felt like a movie.
And it was almost like the bride expected to find him with said bridesmaid out there, like she just knew it was going to happen.
