Signs went up in my two locals, memo received Saturday. As to ban, don't think that is the case. Both managers said, when I enquired what was to be the result of swearing, that you will not be served again, as per Humph's instructions. You will be allowed to finish your drink? Yes. So will you be asked to leave? No. Which shows the off the cuff nature of the memo, not thought through. So I asked, if I come in again next day do I get served? Yes, as long as you don't swear again.
So everyone was having a laugh and having extended conversations, predominantly using the word 'up' as a substitute, or more correct terminology such as fornication. Where they would not have sworn in the first place actually.
I doubt this will have any effect whatsoever unless himself is on the premises.
Though I do agree the language is a bit too much on occasion, and certainly inappropriate at times. It can be ok to swear as long as it gets reined in when ladies, kids or vicars present.
No doubt there has been an incident or Humph has witnessed something which has set him off.
Which may come out on this forum.
