This is it. The bedwetter post that D000gh was waiting fror, here it is.

Not sure how it will fit in with those posters that would suggest I need to stand my ground, as I did.

So I was in the pub tonight and I put my coin down on the pool table and waited my turn, after an hour my turn was due (as I was keeping tabs on things) and my turn was taken by someone else (part of the new family of Irish (Dubliners, possibly pikeys)) that now seem to own the pub - the same folks that gave me the grief initially. My turn was denied by all of them.
I moaned.

Apparently my fifty pence piece had been swapped for a ten pence piece and I was actually on next. (This happened in my absence apparently). I moaned, and then waited patiently.

It was then apparently not my turned and some fat lad in a beeny called Mike said it was his turn. I tried to explain.

I explained.

I moaned.

They got stroppy,

They offered me outside.
I lost it. Properly. Went postal.


SY02 rang me and asked for an update, and upon learning it asked me to come straight home.

I refused.

I went outside and offered them out as well, went proper mental. Proper lost it.
Proper out of character for me, but I had had enough.

They backed off, cowards that they are.

The landlord appeared, and barred me for the evening.

Strange as the other night they appreared, offered out the captain and he (26 year old landlord) just said we should just sort it out ourselves.

Weird how when his profligacy amounts in a tearup he bars the victim and entertains the scum. :rolleyes:

I have no option but to vote with my feet. I know others have problems with these plebs, and when word gets round what has happened I know others will also vote with their feet.

Sad when you consider the landlord (26) just needs to grow a pair and manage his pub.

Still, when his tenure ends there willl be some other poor soul (hopefully) to resume management of the pub and hopefully they will do a far better job.

Time to find another pub. It's really not worth getting arrested ...

I agree.
And when you do find another pub, make sure their understanding of the coin-based queueing system is the same as yours before you start throwing stools around. Even though our headmaster made sure we all understood the pool-table-coin-lineup before we left primary school, it's not always a good plan to delegate your communication with your fellow man to a shiny metal disc.

Good on you for standing up for yourself!! What I don't understand is why you bother going down there on your own? You know you are going to get grief. Doesn't sound like much fun playing pool with idiots who might start a fight. Why not do like everyone else and have a few cans in the fridge at home.

Groan.

Buy a chalk board and chalk. Write "Pool(No name, no game)" on top of it and give it to the landlord with the words 'This should stop all the nonsense with the pool table'

Plus you wouldn't likely come back late at night and firebomb the pub. ;)

So you went down the pub on your own on a sunday night, and waited for an hour to play pool against someone from amongst a group of ruffians that you do not like? What sort of a cretin does that?

At the risk of being accused of becoming an illiterate troll again...

Why do you put yourself through this?

There are many places I went as a younger lad that I wouldn't go to these days, mainly because I wouldn't fit in anymore. I am no longer the landlord's target audience. I'm not there each day filling the fruitmachine, jukebox, pool table and till with my hard earned/ill gotten gains and as such, I no longer get to influence the volume of the music or the sport on the TV. It's not necessarily because the place has changed but more likely I have.

You don't like the people who frequent the place, yet you choose not only to return but also it find some way of interacting with them causing confrontation... Why do ths?

If I go somewhere and it's filled with tw@ts, I go elsewhere. If the landlord of a local goes downmarket to gain the business of scum, I go elsewhere. If someone turns my favorite "Red wine and red meat" type eatery into a chucky cheese (are they in the uk?) I go elsewhere.

Think you need to move on or either you'll get a kicking or you'll simply stop enjoying going out completely which spoils the point somewhat.

aye. spot on.

jeez the thought of 'offering them out' makes the hairs on the back of me neck stand on end. Do you have no dirty tricks, weaps , element of suprise training at all?
if you do insist on going down this route, try smiling, edge closer, say 'I'm going now, me nan is in hospital, me dogs died and my sister has leukemia', then NUT. stick the ead on the bridge of his nose

make sure you wear clean undies before you go out though. My nan always used to say, wear clean undies in case you get run over and end up in intensive care

To offer someone out, is to invite them to meet you in the carpark or the street, in order to settle your differences with fisticuffs.
It's a civilised way to behave, and often results in a half @rsed shoving contest and both parties can withdraw with honour satisfied. Unfortunately, being civilised only works if you are dealing with like minded people, and where your life is at stake, you cant take that chance. so dont.

If you do drop someone, and their mates dont intervene, and you realise that you have transgressed the unwritten law, you can always recover your street cred by getting a damp cloth from behind the bar, and mop the blood till they come round. When people realise that you have tended him rather than booting or robbing him, you will be elevated to the exalted position of local hard case.
Take their trainees off while they are unconcious though. A guy cant scrap without any boots on.

Frankly, the notion of 'asking someone outside for a fight' is ridiculous in the extreme. It offers lots of posturing & huffing & puffing.

If you serious about getting in a punch up ,frankly I would go for the blitzkrieg approach of lamping your opponent in a number of fast lightening punches before backing across the room and allowing people to come between you and then other chap. Then being held apart I suggest you go for the 'I'm going to f**king kill you mate' before allowing yourself to be held back gently, before rushing him one more time and smacking him around the head before getting thrown out.

That's the proper way to have a pub fight.

Or go and buy that bloody chalk board!

Fraid so. The real stuff happens so quickly you dont see it, I have very rarely see a proper scrap last more than two seconds. And when you are in a confined place, there is vey little room for skill. strength plays the major role, and nerve.

the thought of watching it build up for an hour, then making a formal declaration of hostilities - :frown
I think suity is lucky to still have all his gnashers

WHS.

Pub fights take place quickly. On the whole they explode then simmer.

If you're going to be in a fight ,you need to decide to flee or fight very early. And if the worse happens and you think it's unavoidable I suggest you lamp the other person first. Too many times I've taken a number of sneaky punches trying to calm it down.

Not sure why offering some pikeys a square is considered bedwetting? seems the exact opposite to me!

that being said I agree with many of the comments, withdraw your custom, sounds like it has already turned into a shithole.

Don't get yourself killed before Xmas, SY juniors need their old man around....even if he is a bit of a plank! :spank:

I recall getting into a "scrap" many years ago in Ayia Napa. A mate and I had decided to have a night out on the town dressed like figures from Blackadder's "Beer" episode. We had false plastic boobies, ostrich feathers sticking out of our trousers, and large rubber noses attached to our foreheads.
This was all proving very satisfactory in the "get you noticed by birds" stakes, and we soon lost count of the number of times they were fondling said boobies in the various pubs. Things were looking very promising.
However, when we attempted to get into any clubs, the bouncers were less than sympathetic and suggested we remove said appendages. Killjoys! SB, who had a few aboard by this stage, was having none of it as I could not see what harm they were causing. Anyway, after a few fruitless attempts, we came to a club with a South African bouncer who was, predictably, less than keen on allowing us entry. I may have suggested that he was just a "White Kaffir", or something equally harmless, and before I knew it we were rolling around in a dusty alleyway. I emerged soon after with a cut lip, and not sure if I landed any blows to him, but it was essentially the end of what had looked like a great night.
Top Tip...........if you are intending on coming across as a "hard case", false boobs and a protruding forehead appendage are not a look you should be seriously considering.

One of the best ways to get in to a fight is to put money on the pool table. It signifies that you are king of the kill and woe betide anyone who touches your badass money. If people are already playing, it means you are now taking over their turf and will make them your beitches.

Come on then, this fictional load of balls from SY is terminally dull.

Trust me, My story is even more dull!

Starts off with a simple trip to Halfords to get a couple of new headlamp bulbs and have the fitter.
I found the bulbs, using their in store flip chart
went to pay for them, only 1 person in the queue in front of me but its still 10 minutes before I can pay because the girl at the till is stuck and needs the manager and can't/won't serve anyone else until she's finished with the current customer.

When I do finally get served i ask if anyone is around to fit them now. I'm told that there is someone and they'll be out in a minute.
15 minutes later the staff member with the training turns up... he takes the bulbs out and they're quite different to the ones i've bought.

So I go back in, grab the right bulbs from the shelf, go to get them exchanged at the till. No queue this time! although a couple of other people hanging round the till area. I go the counter but the girl can't exchange them till the manager gets back!

10 minutes later, the manager turns up. Of course the other people hanging around are also waiting for exchanges.
Eventually I get to have my exchange processed at which point the manager says "Before I can process the exchange I'll need your name and address for the system"
After 40 minutes and still not having the right set of bulbs, no apologies, just the usual brain dead halfords stare, this was the straw that broke the camels back.
My reply "You have to be ******* kidding me" ... I took a few deep breaths and managed to calm myself down instead of smashing his face against the counter.

Its not the first time Halfords have managed to wind me up, their staff just seem to have the sort of demeanour that, for me, pushes all the wrong buttons. Its probably down to lack of training or really bad management.
