I never thought this day would come but pubs and bars are getting rid of Happy Hour promotions. It is their attempt to crackdown on heavy drinking and its effects on society.
This move comes a few months after English pubs were told that they could apply for 24 hour drinking licences. (Most English pubs are required to close at 11pm)
Surely nothing encourages heavy drinking more than allowing people to drink ALL day, EVERY day.
What is even sadder about this is that pubs will claim that it is only a small irresponsible few that drink (the yobs) and get out of control yet all of us have to suffer.
Well I KNOW I am not a yob. In fact I don’t just know that I am not a yob, an independant body has declared that I am a certified responsible drinker. Ok, so I took the Are You a Yob quiz [via The Guardian].
You scored 12
You work hard and play hard, and manage to keep your anti-social behaviour in check most of the time.
…I am off to show this to the nearest barman and see if I can convince him to sell me (and only me!) two beers for the price of one.
Are you a yob? Go and have a go if you think your hard enough.
