Black Eye Friday 06

Well another fun filled black eye Friday, which for those who don't know is what the Friday when most people finish work for the Christmas holidays is nicknamed, they tend to finish work early about lunch time and they then head straight down to the pub for a long boozy session. They keep us busy shuffling them from pub to pub, and as the day wears on they get the worse for wear. It gets to about four p.m and then I start to pick some of them up to go home, and they are telling me what a good night they have had, they are convinced that because it's dark that it must be late at night. Then some want you to book a taxi for them in an hour or two's time, "because they are going back out again after a shower or meal" and you just know that in ten minute's time they will be fast asleep and snoring. Once a year drunks I call them the worst kind because they aren't used to it, they take ages to get out of the car because you are their new best friend and they want to tell you their life story many times over, very slowly.

Have a great Christmas Bob, looking forward to keeping up with your blog next year.

Hear hear, have a very merry Christmas, but perhaps not quite as merry as the folk you've been telling us about. One consolation is that at least their antics are good for your business.

Bob said...

Yes merry Christmas to everyone.

It's one day of the year, I steer clear of the pub. Once a year drinkers piss me off and so does queueing 5 deep at the bar to get a pint.

I went to bed in the afternoon for a kip only to get a call from pals, telling me that our local was almost empty. I have a feeling the new landlord is not that popular. Keep up teh good work Bob.

Hey bob. If you think you have it tough, just remember the poor operators who have to try and deciper their sppech when they try to book a taxi. All the best mate.
