    Probably loneliness....maybe you should try actually engaging this 'annoying person' in a conversation?

    How would you feel if someone thought you were an 'annoying person'?

    Caught me out mr chunkmeister!!:biggrin:
  9. Yup, we have an annoying person too. This has resulted in hiding from him by sitting round the corner - we're so bad! :lol:

    It's obvious - he fancies you summat rotten, and can't bear to be parted from you....

    It's fate, just accept that you haven't (yet) recognised your soulmate...

    (How far do I need to run?....:oops:;) )

    Being on a medication that does not allow me to drink (and for all the Salvationists out there) pubs in the US are often called "Sports Bars". Same kind of thing, except Americans drink lighter beer and have their beer cold -- ice cold.

    I go in once-in-a-while for some wings, etc. But not often enough to know the crowd.

    But even at church (I am working to finish the last of my requirements to become a Free Methodist pastor -- which BTW has its roots in the Church of England) there are annoying people that people will hide from. Most often retired pastors that were once important and now cannot stand it. I feel bad for them -- but since I have been to seminary, I engage them in conversation at times to make them feel important again.

    Obnoxious people are usually lonely and have not learned great people skills. But they are everywhere, not just the pub!

    I'm of the mind that id they are just ignorant you should be tolerant and kind...

    ...but if they are stupid, ignore them or tell them to ****** off!

    The majority of British pubs serve tasteless fizzy p***
    My local serves real ale including ale from a local brewey in macclesfield which is absolute necter.
    They also serve a german lager on draught called Dortmunder, which isn't filled full of chemicals, detergent and toilet cleaner like the rest of the well known lagers in Britain.

    Why can't we have nice lager like our friends in Europe???:mad:

    Aren't most European lagers stronger than our fizzy pish (as my other half insists on calling it!)? Dunno if our drinking culture in the UK could cope with that ..... ??

    Doesn't affect me at the mo as I am off beer and have been a for a few months now.

    Yes it is stronger, Dormunder at my local is 5% whereas carling is 3% ish (not sure) StellaArtois is also 5%ish.

    I've found abroad and with Dortmunder, doesn't matter how much you drink, you don't feel hungover in the morning, and i'm convinced its because abroad they don't pump it full of chemicals and other rubbish..
