Open someone’s beer — a cute girl’s, a mentor’s, even just a new acquaintance’s — and you gain some clout. You’re a mover and a shaker. Someone will ask if anyone’s got an opener and the drinker you just enabled will vouch for you. You’ll feel a burst of pride and realize that all of a sudden you’re a somebody. People are looking your way and noticing your style, your panache. You’re changing the dynamic of this party. You’re The Opener. Yeah, you want to be that guy.
