Drinking habits that annoy you

Aslong as you don't hold up people like me waiting for their beer as you order your hot drink that's fine
Me and bar staff have an understanding so I just give them a signal as Captain Jean Luke Picard does on board the Starship Enterprise when he orders a Romulan Ale.

Herbs it isn't the same at all you mentalist.
From your list of egregious intolerance I am betting you wouldn't hold your mates' pints if they fucked off and left you to hold their pint.
How’s it different? If you’re a smoker and kettled then both things seem to have equal importance. You probably want one of each every half hour, seeing as you’re no longer allowed to chain smoke while you drink. Or piss on the floor. And don’t be so presumptuous - I’ve done it millions of times. I’d never just put it down out of spite.
Its a fighting term and commonly used in self defence as a way to anticipate your enemies next move. If you see someone drop their shoulder it means they are about to strike at you.

I'd rather have a coffee than a pint.
:lol:
Judging by the replies on here, it seems there are two different worlds of drinking going on. One is sitting at a table in the local enjoying a pint, while the other is standing in a packed town bar hoying them down and moving on. The same rules of engagement can’t apply to both scenarios.

You already said you don't stay in the same bar too long without getting agitated, so what is your tab to pint ratio?

People who want to set up a kitty
People who buy spirits in a round
People who drink spirits instead of pints
People who bow out when the night is young
People who drop the shoulder
People who won’t hold your pint while you go for a piss/tab
People who won’t wait for you to finish your tab and march into the pub to order the round before you’ve had a chance to peruse the real ale selection.
People who leave half of their pint in every pub
People who won’t neck their drink when someone announces “next pub
People who, when you say “I’m finished. I’ll just pop for a tab/piss and meet you outside”, stay where they are and carry on gassing so you have to come all the way back in the pub to chivvy them along
People who want to stay in the same pub for more than 2 drinks.
People who won’t go in a certain pub because “the beer is crap”
People who ask for a taster
People who ask for a dimpled pint pot instead of a glass
People who get edgy and start fights
People who need a tactical spew to get through the night
People who get so pissed they need sending home/ putting in a taxi
People who try to pay with their phone but can’t get it to work.
People who won’t go in a certain pub for a stupid reason eg the toilet smells

Have I missed anything?
I hate “the kitty” went out with work for the first and last time ten years ago Wetherspoons Wembley think I got 5 of slop for about £30.

All the young ninjas were on JD and coke and vodka red bull.

I am cash only as well.. out the other week and my mate doesn’t carry cash anymore and takes the piss out of me for doing so.

Went to a bar in London Bridge and it was cash only... on his round as well.. he asked me for for £20.

I sent him to the cash point
Poor bar manners does it for me like. People who steal a place in the queue and don't acknowledge anyone who was waiting before them and let them go first. Then there's the wankers who don't even wait to be served and just bark drinks at the staff even though they are in the middle of dealing with someone else.

And the bar staff that are naff at remembering who was waiting next that let them that let the shithousery happen in the first place.
I feel your pain Marty. Chaplins (apart from the Irish lad ) is particularly bad for this..

It’s even worse when the female staff will serve females first regardless of where they are in the queue.
People who are clearly out in a group but huddle round the bar and buy their drinks separately, usually lasses or young lads.
People taking menus to the bar to order food. Can't you remember two meals you daft twat?
People who insist on drinking at the bar when there's clearly not enough room for anyone to get served.
People in a round who insist on getting something clearly significantly more expensive than anyone else's drink.
It’s not often I cry but walking up to the bar and the person in front has a menu with them makes me.

Can I have curly fries instead of normal chips and mayonnaise as well

Just die.

People who only drink Guinness (particularly when away with the lads in places like magaluf etc)

Groups of lads that go to the bar together and then order drinks individually

People who insist you try their drink (normally some real ale or cocktail shite)

People who turn up at the pub and then need to go to the bank

i hated pub crawls back in the day, couldn't see the point. it was like the main aim was NOT to be in a pub at all but to spend most of the night walking through the cold or rain, then when you got to the next place you had to throw a beer down your neck and out the door again. hardly got a chance to speak to anyone that wasn't part of the group. usually spent more time in the chippy or taxi queue at the end of the night than any of the pubs...

Victimising smokers again this. How times have changed.
I’d hold someone’s drink while they went for a tab, but smokers sometimes don’t realise how antisocial they are being. You have, at a guess 2 tabs per hour, say 5mins for the tab and a few minutes either side to go outside and get back in, so 20mins per hour, or 1/3 if the time your supposed to be socialising your stood outside. If there’s a big group it’s less of an issue but if there’s only 2 or 3 of you I think it’s rude.

Sure you can light up when walking between places, but if your just going a door or two down your left outside while the others go in and maybe miss your round.

I’m glad next to none of my mates smoke.

Again, blame the ban. Wasn’t a problem when we could light up inside and most people did anyway.
