I went to the nearest bar and told my story to the nice woman working there and asked for a replacement glass. She said: "I can't do that unless you bring me the broken one." I said it doesn't have to be one of the wine glasses, one of the beer cups would be fine, just so my wife didn't have to drink from a dribble cup. The woman was a complete ass. "Nuh uh, can't do it. Go get me the broken one."
"Screw you," said I.
I went to one of the other bars in the Opera Hall and the guy working this one said: "Yeah, no problem. Here you go. Sorry about the cracked glass."
I had to walk past the bar with Ms Helpful. I couldn't resist going over to her and showing her the replacement glass: "The guy upstairs was able to help. Thank for nothing."
Her attitude is a perfect microcosm of why this city is so completely effed-up.
