Popped in the ?The Gay Arms? 13.9.12
Joking apart we always go in the lounge, at least there is someone in on a late evening.
Although there were only about 4 customers in the lounge, there were plenty of empty seats
Ordered the drinks and decided to park up in the bay window seat, all four of us had just got seated, when Mr Grumpy tipped up shouting get the F out of my seat.
York drinkers will probably know the man as John, who is elderly and also drinks in the Cab.
Normally I wouldn?t be too bothered about people using the F word, but on this occasion I asked John to tone his language down, due to one of our group being a lady.
After another abusive mouthful from John, our Lady friend got up and walked away to the middle of the bar, very embarrassed.
What our group couldn?t understand was how a customer could lay claim to a seat if he was sat in the middle of the pub talking to another ?New? temporary landlord, for at least five minutes.
Apart from his dirty coat and plastic bags left on the seat where our group sat down, I wouldn?t have thought any decent person would have kicked up a fuss.
Any way our Lady friend was very disappointed that the ?New? temp landlord whom she was chatting too a week earlier, hadn?t the bollocks to walk over and sort the little seat problem out him self.
The girl behind the bar tried to smooth things over, by saying John had left his stuff on the seat and was entitled too moan at us.
Hey ho we won?t be rushing back.
