Field reports of two OUTRAGEOUS breaches of pub etiquette:

1. From the PintJournal of our Glasgow correspondent comes a tale of someone ordering a very expensive wheat beer pint in someone else’s round and then providing a LIST of acceptably priced drinks when they themselves went to the bar. Wheat beers have created enormous amounts of etiquette issues but most pubgoers are used to fitting premium-priced pints into a round system, on the “what goes around comes around” rule, which is what the entire communistical edifice sits on anyhow.

2. From the PLOUGH pub nr the British Museum this boggling incident:

– Some people enter boozer, there are no tables. They go to the bar and say “Are you still serving food?” Barmaid erms non-commitally. They press their case – “If we ordered some food, could we kick them off their table?” Them in this case means US who are drinkin happily (though not eating). The barmaid looks desperately to her superior who dives in with a quick confirmation that they are NOT serving food anyway. But my dears, the very idea!
