Police officers in Mannheim had to roll up their sleeves and tend bar during a pub inspection on Wednesday evening when they discovered the waitress was too drunk to bill her customers, police said Thursday.

"The 38-year old woman was barely able to hold herself up and had somewhat slurred speech,” a statement said.

The woman's blood alcohol content registered a stiff 0.31 percent when she submitted to a breathalizer test around 9 pm.

The waitress and her customers had so much to drink that none of them knew where to begin to tally the bill, forcing the officers to do the math, cash up and close shop a bit early.

The department for restaurants at the city council was informed of the incident.
