What’s right?

Saturday evening. Early, to be fair. Standing in a pub in Birmingham that I rate highly most days. Enjoying good ale. But some bloke (or some woman with a really masculine voice!) is treating us to Oasis tracks “a capella”. I’d like to refer you to my previous post but it is clearly too late for parental influence.

It has stopped again. Hopefully either the friends of the drunken contralto, or the staff of the bar, have restored order.

My point, if I have one, is that antisocial behaviour can be subtle but controllable.  Grown-ups can be as guilty as children. Either can make the pub a delightful place. I don’t feel delighted tonight.

But then, as I step down from the soapbox, the thought. How many times was that me? It’s easy to be critical.
