    People that draw with the chalk on the dartboard.

    People that play, lose and will not chalk.

    People that walk in front of a player about to take a shot/throw a dart.

    People that sit too near to a board/pool table.

    People that discuss the quality of play thinking that the player is in some sort of vacuum and cannot hear their comments.
    So you are pretty easy going then, Strongers

    I should add, locals that beat you in their pub - and should lose as a friendly gesture!

    I haven't played pool in years but used to in my younger days. One bugbear of mine was having to wait ages to get a game due to two totally inept players who can't pot for toffee. It was usually some bloke and his girlfriend having a game "for fun".

    Now it is two 8 year-olds, whose parents give them 50p for a game to get them out of the way for 3 hours.

    Pubs that play a backing soundtrack and also have muted screens showing music videos,

    But they're NOT playing the same songs.
