Sometimes patrons want to go where everybody knows their names, though it helps when half of them are named John. When people want to celebrate, or commiserate, they gather to your establishment. You provide the atmosphere, the warmth, rum, and even an ear to bend. Did I mention the rum? Years before the language will be mangled with terms like facilitator and networking and interpersonal communication, you've overseen it all, and broken up a few bar fights, to boot.~

Worst part is that it's about occupational safety and health. Which is ... disturbing?

I have to say, this quote combined with your smirking avatar makes me very happy for Snazzlepants, or very scared or him, or maybe both.

Probably both.
