Two words that everyone understands. Uncomplicated. Universally measurable. Sort of.
It’s not always that straightforward these days. I found myself on the receiving end of a complicated bar-transaction last night. It went something like this…
“Two thirds of [beer name] please”
“Is that two 1/3rds or one 2/3rd?”
“We also do pints”
“Just 2/3rds please”
It was a little awkward and I guess we both saw the funny side of it, but secretly we both knew this was an issue.
I’ll order a pint next time.
