In Response To: How DOES that glass get there!? (Becky)
In answer to your subject line:
The beer glass was "chilled" in an ice bin before pouring the beer. Somehow broken glass got into the ice and adhered through suction to your boyfriend's glass.
Your boyfriend's beer glass was washed in a commercial dishwashing unit which is overloaded and a glass breaks. When handled, the suction from the water allows a bit of the broken glass to adhere to your boyfriend's glass even after it was put away upside down
The bartender mixes several drinks at once, with glasses lined up at the well. When scooping ice into other beverages a bit of glass falls into your boyfriend's beer because there was broken glass in the ice.
The beer glass was chilled in a refrigerator where the glasses were stacked too closely together and one broke. When your boyfriend's beer glass was used to pour the beer, there was a bit of glass inside it....
These things happen on occasion. The manager probably should have conveyed more concern, but buying your drinks was an appropriate response.Thankfully, these instances are quite rare...
The same thing happened to my boyfriend when we were eating at a Red Robin

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
