It is not a pub I regularly frequent, and the opportunity only arose when I had 'to kill' half an hour, waiting for a bus.
It all began in a very positive manner. Friendly old chap at the bar, telling me what good value the cask ales were. Friendly young lady then served me and politely informed me that one of the three casks was about to go. Thus enabling me to plump for one of the other two.
Duly served, I left the bar area for somewhere a little more comfy and quiet. The 'old boy' had said:''Enjoy ya pint lad''. As I plonked myself down with the local newspapers, a decent distance away from the bar.
Unfortunately, there endeth the positives of my visit. Apart from a very enjoyable pint for under two quid!
|WISHED SOMEBODY HAD DONE THIS TO HIM!|
Now I am no prude and have been known to use my fair share of industrial language. But there is a time and place for it, I am sure you will agree. This foul mouthed specimen was bellowing and spewing out the expletives at a public bar, as a young lady was serving customers!
I was about ten yards away and it sounded bad enough from where I was sitting. Unrelenting bile. I was surprised it was allowed to continue. It really did put a dampener on my visit.
|WOULD HAVE FILLED IT IN 5MINS!|
Finally, can I point out that it was not really a moan or a gripe. More of an observation. And I just wanted to share my unsavoury moment with you all, because I would simply be interested to hear if you have had a similar experience and what had been done about it, if anything.
Await developments so to speak, with you all.
