26, 27 & 28th Jan. Guess where?
S, the same guy that I covered the firms Xmas bash with, is my colleague tonight.
I like this guy. Totally no nonsense. Halfway through the night the girl that's running the karaoke comes over and tells us there is a bloke bothering people that are singing.
S is off and over there like a flash and I'm left watching from the door. S spoke to the guy and then just stood over there for a while. After about 10 minutes the guy that had apparently been shouting abuse at the singers, (I couldn't really blame him- most were terrible) came out followed by S. The manager came out and told us not to let him back in. I somehow don't think S was going to anyway. The guy hangs around out front for a while, leaning in the window occasionally to get people to buy him a drink, so I shut the window and told him to go home and that is what he did.
Everything else went smoothly.
Saturday was live band night. 4 of them!!
D is my colleague for the night and he has been on the door less time than me, but he seemed decent enough.
As people are filing in and paying there money to the manager, who is on the door with us to start with, but only for the coin, a chap comes up that has been barred from the pub. The manager recognises him and tells him that he's not coming in and they start to argue. Well actually, and fair play to the manager here, the guy starts to argue and the manager responded every time with, "No, you're barred!"
Eventually the manager leans over to me and says, "Get rid of him, willya?"
So I move toward the fellow and he starts to back out of the door. By this time, the barred chaps brother had arrived and was also telling him he should just go.
Chappie eventually decides that he's going to talk to the manager one last time. The response was the same and chappies bro starts to move him back out the door at which point he looks at me and says, "You're lucky I'm in a good mood and I don't want to hurt you!"
I couldn't help smiling at that comment and he started to bang on about me not taking him seriously and all that cr4p.
He still left though.
After that it was all pretty smooth, except to say that a little later the chappies brother came up to me and said about his sibling..."You'd better watch it though, he is mental!"
