eddie1 Should drink pitchers be required for folk venues (68* d) RE: Should drink pitchers be required for folk venues 02 Mar 10


The question of drinkers being limited to one pitcher reminds me of one of my father's stories from his naval days.
He was home on leave and went to a local pub which had a 1-pint ration due to shortage of supplies. Everyone was nursing their beer to make it last as long as possible. He went to the bar and asked for a pint but the barmaid said all the glasses were being used. Undeterred, he went to the next pub down the street and just inside the door was a table with two empty pint glasses. He grabbed one, took it to the bar and asked for a pint. The barmaid. perhaps related to the previous one, said, "Sorry, you're only allowed one pint and you've had yours!"
