The waiters are discussing a regular client, a well-to-do, deaf elderly man that enjoys drinking late into the night and who recently attempted suicide. The younger waiter is irritated with the elderly man as he would like to return home to his wife and life.

“During this time his drinking increased. He was an alcoholic, but he wrote sober.” ("F.Scott Fitzgerald Centenary."). which is highly relatable to Gatsby’s non-drinking habit at his parties. “It’s a great advantage not to drink among hard drinking people.” I guess you could say he was at work when he threw his parties, because his long-term goal was Daisy.
