What if bars put every drink in the same glass?

Anyone who's ever worked in the service industry (or really any job for that matter) has had that moment when they think "if I owned this place here's what would be different..."

Well, for me, one of the things I'd like to see is a high end bar/restaurant that puts every single drink in the same glass.  It'd make life way easier for the staff, and save the establishment a lot of money as well.  I've had this idea for many many years, dating back to when I first came to the conclusion that martini glasses are about the stupidest thing ever.  They serve no function, are annoying to hold, and pretty much constantly spill all over the place.  So without further ado, here's the glass I've decided is best suited for everything a bar might serve:

In doing this research I've just discovered the official name for a glass of this type is a double old fashioned.  This particular one holds 13.25 oz of liquid, so you can pour a 12 oz draft beer (or bottle) in it no problem.  Standard mixed drinks would fit perfectly as well.  There's also a thick heavy base similar to rocks glasses for people who like to drink straight booze.  And it's vaguely the same shape as a martini glass, but it's design will make it much less likely to spill (also because a martini would only fill it up to about the LucidSportsFan line).  Similarly a glass of wine would pour to that same line as well.  But best of all, these glasses could be stacked one on top of the other to save space.

As far as I know this is the third blog I've written with which I used a picture of bar glass, here are the first two:
