Have you ever gone to a bar and waited forever just to get a glass of wine? Kathie Lee and Hoda feel your pain. Which is why they were particularly interested in a new study out of Germany on the most effective ways to get a bartender's attention.

"Snapping and whistling are the two thing Frank likes to do," KLG said, of how her hubby tries to flag down a bartender. "He doesn't think it's offensive. He has no idea."
