Good Morning,
Here’s a game: Next time you’re in a bar or other late-night establishment, look at the decor.

Are knickknacks bolted to the wall? Are the bartenders pouring shots into glasses or plastic cups?

“Drunk people think everything is funny and will steal anything and everything,” Rachael Wiley, a bartender at The Over Hang, told The Post. Wiley and others involved in the business of boozing told us about intoxicated patrons’ penchants for stealing stuff.
