    What is the world coming to?
    How can there ever be a remake of the Young Ones with students who behave like that?
    This one deserves a bonus point!

    In a very busy pub, at 9pm, a family of 4 who take up an entire 12 seater table by allowing their tired children (aged about 7 and 12, I would guess) to lie horizontally along the benches, then, when asked if 2 of us could sit at the end of their table to eat our meal, get really stroppy and say that as they were residential guests they are entitled to their own space and we would have to find somewhere else to sit.

    I couldn't put a #number on that as it seems to roll several different annoyances into one scenario.

    Sounds very much like my Stansted Airport experience in the early hours of last Friday.

    Phew! It wasn't a JDW but it just goes to show that the policing of pubs by that allow families is not a problem exclusive to JDW.

    Being Given Old Pound Coins In Change The Day Before They Expire.

    It was, of course, a JDW.

    Must admit I'd forgotten all about it until later on when I was reading the paper and checked in my pocket. Spent them in Tesco this morning, wherein the girl had a till bulging full of old ones.
