    We're not the only ones looking out for pub annoyances, http://usvsth3m.com/post/63087392700...uld-be-legally I might share the sentiment in the headline for some the grosser transgressions we have identified.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Interesting to get the perspective from the other side of the counter. But I do get the feeling that they have forgotten that it is the customer who is paying their wages and (for example) might be excused for wanting to listen to the music they're paying for. But all a bit tongue in cheek I think.

    Ah Juke Box Wars. I still remember an incident years ago when we went in a pub where we deemed the music to be far too loud and unpleasant. Ten consecutive plays of "Tell Laura I Love Her" soon got the thing turned down. I think we moved on to the next port of call without waiting to see if they turned it up again.

    On a technically similar theme, although not wishing to cause any division, myself and my football mates pitched up in a definitely Irish nationalist pub near Paddington late one Saturday night. My Northern Irish mate stuck a Dana song on the juke box, explaining beforehand it might make things "interesting". It certainly did, mayhem ensued as they tried unsuccessfully thank God to find who had put it on, finally the thing was turned off. My mate's "humour" is disputable at times.

    I usually manage, but water can be a bit cold
    I drink to make others more interesting

    Not sure if has been mentioned but definitely worthy: person / people in front of you order a large round of Guinness which is the slowest beer to serve. Also there just happens to be the most inept barstaff on who can't pour a pint of the stuff quickly without it frothing over the top of the glass, resulting in repeated top-ups of the pints. Meanwhile bar queue slowly builds up around you.

    #206 - change that gets given to you on a little tray

    #433 - pubs with no trays to carry beer out on. "Yes mate, that's four pints, two glasses of wine and coke. Tray? Well you should have got other people to help you carry your round. Well it's not my fault they're all pensioners is it?!?"
