We came in for happy hour, for their buy one get one free special. It was a wonderful place and ambience. The staff was super polite and had great manners. However, as soon as we entered we over heard the bartender David (Dave as he called himself). Made the statement ( in which I caught the tail end of) " I'm kinda like Paula Deen here". I'm not sure the contact in which it was used, but it would have been best to whisper it. Moving forward, it was apparently clear that Dave was under the influence of something. He was slurring his words! Totally unacceptable for the working environment. He also was making the statement to two women how he's the bosses boss, and that when "They" come in to work bumping that mess, he doesn't take there crap. That his word is law. An apparent flex of power, why he felt the need to tell these two women that is questionable. All this occurred while employees where moving and working about him. I took that as an apparent taunt. That's totally unnessacary, your employees should be respected and they should respect you as well. No bullies should be allowed in power positions, they will only continue to be a bully. Dave insisted we close out tab because he was clocking out to end his shift, Dave gave me my bill, which showed multiple mistakes. Which I pointed out and he changed. After he had clocked out, he sat at the bar and had a drink.... I pulled Dale aside to tell him my complaint. He sat, listened and was highly attentative to what I told him. He was more then willing to listen. He comforted me about the situation and even offered us a beer. I appreciate him taking the time to listen. He's a gem there at Pasta Joe's. All in all my experience was good, Dale made it great.
