So it's not part of his job to kiss her, but he could lose his job if he doesn't? Is part of (all of?) his job to keep her happy? Did she want him to kiss her? Did she have any feelings about it one way or the other? Would this be a sort of routine-social-kiss (e. g. kiss hello, kiss goodbye, kiss goodnight, that kind of thing)? A romantical-type-kiss? Her age relevant? Her social standing? Her nationality? Her native culture?

Was she in any way his customer?
Did she fail to become his customer?
If so, was it likely because he did not kiss her?
If there were others about doing the same job, could one of them have kissed her instead of him and produced the same result?

Does this take place in a pub (vs. a temporary bar at a function, say)? Are you up late (obNag)? They were in a situation in which it would've been appropriate for him to kiss her, but he didn't (for some as-yet undetermined reason), correct? They both knew that a kiss would've been appropriate? Would it have? Was she wearing anything relevant?

Was either of them 'hitting on' the other?
Would the kiss have been something medically related or romantically related?

Was she drunk?

******** SPOILER ************

A woman walked into a bar and asked for a glass of water. The barman pulled a gun on her.

The woman had hiccoughs. In the traditional version of this story, the woman thanks the barman and leaves. In this version all the mayhem that one might expect from a barman pulling a gun on someone arises, resulting specifically in the barman being dead (and therefore losing his job :-)). Perhaps it would have been easier if he'd resorted to an alternative cure for hiccoughs which was suggested to me recently, and just kissed her.
