    Default The Worst Day Of The Year For Pub Regulars

    We're fast approaching some of those days when our favourite pubs are full of random amateur drunken idiots who will never been seen again until the next time. Us professionals at the drunken idiocy game know when we're beaten and stay home for the duration.

    So in rank order, which are the worst days of the year for pubgoers? I'd go for

    1 New Year's Eve
    2 Christmas Eve
    3 The Friday before Christmas Eve
    4 St Patrick's Day
    5 Mother's Day (screaming kids, but no different to drunken idiots)

    I would add Christmas Day lunch time. Family parties roll up and take an age to decide and order a round of drinks . Then comes the discussion on who will pay for what. Why -O- Why can they not discuss all these matters before arriving at the pub where they block access to the bar because no one can decide where they will all sit or stand.

    Bloody Amateurs !

    Being honest, anytime someone speaks to me in the pub, whom i do not know, counts as an ordeal - leave me be!

    6 - Halloween, not top of the list, as you need to get out of the house to avoid trick or treaters!

    Can't argue with that. I'd add part time football supporters, when any internationals are being played.
