Someone took (stole?) my drink!!!

Today, being a Sunday, me and my partner decided to be lazy and go out to pub for a carvery meal. What you tend to do is order your drinks and meal at the bar, then you get a little voucher for the carvery. You get a table and put your drinks on it, then join the queue for the carvery and once you've got you meal go back to the table and eat it. When ordering our drinks the bar tender misheard my partner's order and though he wanted just a coke, instead of a vodka and coke, so he got a (glass) bottle of coke out and a drinking glass, then my partner corrected him so the bar tender added the vodka to the coke. Usually when ordering a vodka and coke you just get both liquids in the glass together. Anyway, we then found a table and left our drinks there while we went to get our food. When we returned to our table we discovered someone had taken the glass with the shot of vodka in, but not the bottle of coke or the pint of shady (which was my partners). Now, either the staff there mistook the glass for being empty or dirty and took it away, which i doubt very much as surely they'd realise even the empty glass was needed for the coke, or, more likely someone stole my vodka!!! Luckily my partner explained this to a staff memeber who gave me another shot of vodka in a glass, to which i added my coke and then got on with eating the meal. I just can't believe that someone would be so low as to steal the vodka though. It's a family pub, and it was Sunday dinner, the place was packed! Also, the idea is that you feel you can leave your drinks on the table (this is also a way of showing the table is taken). I really hope there's another explaination but i really do think some lowife stole it. Well i hope they choked on it! What do you think of this?

I like to think that what you've described was just an unfortunate misunderstanding, but unfortunately I don't think that is the case. I've had my drinks stolen before, so have my friends. Some people are just too cheap to buy their own drinks, and in that case they shouldn't really be in a pub. x
