Have your say

Ever wondered why you find yourself standing at the bar, failing to get the attention of bar staff as they continues to look through you, serving everybody else around you?

Well, it seems the explanation may be more scientific than you think.

A group of German researchers have discovered waving your cash or snapping your fingers won’t do it – it’s all about body language.

Research showed staff are more likely to serve a customer who is standing facing the bar, making eye contact and isn’t in conversation.

The study’s results are even being used to develop a bartending robot that will be able to spot those who really want a drink and serve them in the fairest order.

Well as long as that cancer cure research is under way...
