I'm worried about the disappearance of credit cards. How am I supposed to start you a tab at my bar? I need something to hold on to just in case you get wasted and walk out!
You scan their credit chip or whatever before
you serve them anything.
I can do that with the credit cards, too, but there are occasions when it is not the preferred thing to do.
Plus, it's always fun listening to the hungover phone calls the next day:
"I was out last night, and, uh, I think I left my credit card at your bar."
"Hold on, drunky, let me check for you."
