Drinking habits that annoy you

Too easy to overspend with cards though. I like to see how much I’ve got left in cash throughout the night.
People who don't take their cards and take ages at the bar coppering up to pay for their round
People who don't take cards and fidget nervously with their loose change when their round comes up.
People who don't take cards and have to borrow to pay for their round
People who don't take cards and have to go home early because their ability to consume beer exceeded their means to pay for it.

What’s a shoulder dropper?
Somebody who just goes home when they've had enough without telling anybody.

I always take my card out but do prefer cash if I am out all day. Usually take & £100 out and if I have any notes left when I wake up the next day I'm happy.

Again, blame the ban. Wasn’t a problem when we could light up inside and most people did anyway.
That’s true but that had the problem of forcing everyone else to breathe second hand smoke whether they wanted to or not. I’d rather people went outside or better yet didn’t smoke. You go out to be social, blowing smoke it others face or going outside for a 1/3rd of the night are both antisocial.

I’m yet to work out where money goes on a town night out like. The most I ever take out is £80.
On average I’ll have 10-12 pints/bottles, which can’t be more than £50 at worst, and a tenner for taxis. I don’t play bandits, buy people drinks or buy food. I take my own tabs out, and don’t go anywhere you have to pay. Yet I always seem to pay for the taxi with my last coppers and get up the nextday with nothing.
Three choices:

1) Go home, and drop your shoulder
2) Tell your mates you are going, and drop your dignity
3) Keep drinking, and drop your stomach contents in the taxi
I think 1 is an absolutely shocking way to behave. In what other life scenario do you just walk off? I don’t see any problem with saying you’re buckled and doing 2. I know I’ll often try and persuade people to stay out longer, and they’ll say they do 1 cos they can’t be bothered to argue, but once you’ve reached an acceptable point on the night nobody really minds if you go home.
3 - Luckily I don’t tend to go out with anyone like this these days. Even the lasses I go out with are generally good til the wee small hours.

True, but it wasn’t an issue for decades. If you wanted to drink in pubs, it was part of the deal you breathed smoke, and people were fine with that. Nobody ever said a word about it until the idea of a ban was proposed, then suddenly people magically started complaining and theatrically wafting smoke away. The social thing was to sit round in a group with pretty much everyone smoking. It’s the non-smokers who’ve changed.

I do, until we reach a club/ dancefloor pub

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
Solid list mate. Especially the last one. Baffling behaviour. As if it's come as a surprise that they needed money for a night out.

Dropping the shoulder is very bad form.

Sorry if SEB
People who got to toilet on entering pub, cos it's their round
People who like to sit at table as far away from the rest of pub as possible
People who don't wish to be the round..."they'll drink on their own"
People who avoid the first round as there's a chance they have to buy an "extra" round at the end

Especially annoying if you meet at Fitzys end of town because there are no free cashpoints at that end of town
My habit of drinking too much too quickly and ending up tucked up in bed by half 8 annoys me.
Drinking too much too quickly is my downfall but I keep going to the point of memory loss. I should grow up really.

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.
Well done Sir/Madam/person of indeterminate gender.
 
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 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.


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.
I’m calling bullshit

there’s never a pub at London Bridge that is cash only
