Bartender scolds customer for stealing cherries from tray

A bartender caught – and then cursed – a customer using her hands to grab cherries from the bar’s fruit tray.

In a video with over 256,000 views, TikTok user The Badass Bartender (@the.badass.bartender) shows the interaction, starting with her catching the cherry picker in action and ending with her throwing the cherries away.

“My first official live and this is happening!” she wrote in the caption. She added in the overlay text, “I turn and see a lady scooping my dark cherries with her bare hands.”

First, many pointed out that the cherries are Luxardo cherries, which retail at a higher price than other cherries, making the fact that The Badass Bartender had to throw them all out even worse.

“Luxardo cherries? That’s basically $1 each,” wrote one user.

“Not the Luxardos,” added another. In response, The Badass Bartender wrote, “I was pisssssseeeeddddd!!!!!!”

Comments soon focused on her handling of the situation, which many users praised.

“Handled it like an absolute queen,” shared one commenter. “I wish I could say that to people waving their hands over the counter at Starbucks.”

“People have no common sense… and I’m glad you saw them at all,” said a second.

“She didn’t see me turn around so she looked like a kid who just got her hand caught in the cookie jar,” The Badass Bartender explained in another comment. “Dead quiet.”

Other commenters shared similar stories from their time in bars.

“Two grown men came to our bar and turned our bar fruit tray around and started making it like a buffet just last night!!!! Can’t believe it?!!!” said one user.

“Ugh! My worst nightmare! The other night a guy licked his finger and stuck it in [in] The sugar rim,” claimed another.

“The other day I let a lady eat an orange… out of my fruit bowl. She said ‘Then why are they on the counter’ after I confronted her,” claimed another TikToker. “Some people.”

Seeing interactions like this has put some users on TikTok off from even getting accompaniments in their drink.

One user wrote, “This is why I never get accompaniments on drinks… I used to be a bartender – you catch 1% of people.”
