I went to
Bike sh#t shed once whilst killling a few hours on a wet Monday night stuck in London, What bunch of tossers and thats the staff don't care about the punters they probably theink I am dick as well so thats ok, I sat around drinking a few expensive beers, chat on me phone, surfing tinterweb and twice they came up to me and told me the seats were reserved. No there not there is no sign on them. When people turn up i'll move, there are other seats for others in the mean time.No one turned up in an 1.5hrs I just didn't fit their demogarphic and they wanted me out. Kin W'ankers , misses the whole point of bike meeting places. Don't think they served ice cream either FFS.
I womble into all sorts of places when I am down in the smoke at work, even if I am not the right fit, bar people are polite, peeps leave me to my own people watching and I go when I am ready, never a problem whether thats getting dragged into a random pavement rave drinking thing or having a beer in a sort of 2nd hand antique clothing bar where you sit under 60's style hair dryers, posh bars, champagne bars, city bars, market bars, normal pbs, local boozers never have I been so patronised having a beer as in the sh#t shed. A bikers meeting place it is not.
