One of my best friends works in a bar - great guy all around. Trouble is, he always tells me that it's best to avoid most of his peers, especially the women. I always point out that he's (more or less) a good person and it's unfair to paint people with a broad brush. He responds that his opinion is right, on the average. I've met a woman who has expressed an interest in me and everyone we mutually know says that she's OK. Trouble is, my intuition screams WALK AWAY - BAD PERSON. I must admit that I'm torn between trusting my instincts vs. trusting other people's word - and my own sense of fairness about people. Everyone has a moment of doubt and this is mine. Question; if you've had close contact with bar workers, what was your opinion of them? I'm interested in the averages, not specific cases. V.
