I would like to hope the Docile Trollop is a classier establishment than that though. Nothing ruins a night out faster than a bunch of ****ing meatheads trying to have a dick measuring contest.
Two women arguing over who gets to take a guy home that night can get pretty dicey too!

The worst nights on the doors can be multiple hen parties in the same venue.

Yeah. I just want to get wankered and talk shit to my mates, not be forced to listen to everyone else's drama.

Pubs. A great idea ruined by other people.

Ownership has nothing to do with it. Pickle juice is bound to splash on somebody. Anyway it's Kilburn you didn't need an excuse to start a fight.

There are few commitments, you can have a very friendly relationship with people in the pub who you never see anywhere else and other people who you ignore. Some people like to prop up the bar and talk to all comers, others sit in the corner by themselves and only occasionally interact. Sometimes people will pass the hat to help out a regular, sometimes they will gossip about the pub bore in another corner of the pub. A few people see each other in places other than the pub but most don't. Sometimes there's music and a singalong and great beer, sometimes the place is pretty empty and smells of dirty ashtrays.

It has all the vices and virtues of the local.

And of course, its name is the Docile Trollop (for old-timer regulars of course).


Karma your way.

We don't want the kind of peasants who would start a fight over a splash of vinegar in our lovely pub.

I got banned from playing the trivia machine in our local pub, I used to go in and play it, and when I'd emptied it I'd spend my winnings, so the landlord never lost on the deal, it was just that I had cheap nights there. There was a technique to ensuring winning more than 90% of the time, and I found that early on.

There was one guy, at least 75 years old, who would come in once a month. He'd spend what seemed to be his entire pension and then not be seen for another 3 weeks.

Bad habit to get into.

Nice one. I never made that much playing them, but I made a ****'s sight more than any of my mates did playing video poker. I watched two of my colleagues pump £50.00 into one of those during a lunch break pint with absolutely nothing to show for it at the end

Hiya, yep keeping well enough. The dreaded heat is easing in which makes it a bit rough for me breathing wise. Still happy, happy because I have become a grandma to a GRANDSON!!!!! His 4 big sisters will keep him straight,


DH retires Friday. It will be interesting.


Thank you for acknowledging me.

It's different. Have found a COPD page on FB which reminds me so much of the Marriage an Visa BE Forum- the sense of somebody having some answers and knowing we're all in the same boat comraderie. You were a real pillar for me there Rete.
