Did Someone Say Happy Hour?
Happy Hour ahhhhhh America’s other favorite past time. According to Mentalfloss.com, the phrase “happy hour” stems from American Naval slang in the 1920s following the WWI, it was an allotted period of time on a ship when sailors could engage in entertainment activities. Nowadays if you go into a bar whether a food chain such as Applebee’s or TGI Fridays or your local neighborhood bar, you are more than likely to come across these characters at your next happy hour crowd. First you have the “regulars” these are the people that everyone is jealous of they get the best service due to them knowing all the staff and even have designated spot at the bar. They don’t need to tip to since they are friends with the bartenders and owner/managers. Next on our list we have the “out of workers” these are the people who work 80+ hours a week for a very demanding job.
They need a place to just unwind and let their collars hang. They can get a bit unruly and wild depending on whether or not they seal their big deal or if they finally close that huge account their boss has been nagging them about. *cue scene the office party scene from The Wolf of Wall Street*. Finally, you gave the first daters, these are usually the people looking for love on apps like Tinder and Bumble, and after hours of cyber stalking and/or texting, who decided to meet up for the first time in person. You can always spot them due to their overdressed attire and awkward body language and intimate conversation.
