I don’t know what I would have done without this bar research

Have your say

I like a pint down the pub on occasion, so I was interested in a story about the best way to get served quickest at the bar.

German researchers studied bartenders and the use of body language in the hope of building a robot barman.

I have to say the findings of the study were really ground-breaking!

Apparently 90 per cent of people use the ‘subtle’ approach of facing the bar when wanting to get served.

Wow! After all these years of trying to get served with my back to the bar staff, I can finally enter a pub armed with the knowledge that facing the bar will get me served quicker.

Cheers to those German researchers. I really don’t know what I would have done without them.
