Well this is not a bug that’s easy to beat! It is truly breaking my heart to see ‘my pub’ being badly run by somebody who has been granted an ‘opportunity’ to play at publican. Don’t get me wrong I don’t begrudge the lad the £100 a week wages but I hate knowing the lack of interest and care that comes with that, I’ve seen it time and time again and there is just no respect.
Pubs are weird businesses and for me you have to love them or the customers realise and the lack of love destroys the business worse still it leaves the building with no soul. I know it sounds daft but when you’ve sat at 4 in the morning with a cup of coffee in an empty pub you have an opportunity to bond with the soul of the place and, if it agrees, add your personality the list of names that have truly been the landlord, not the managers or visitors but the true landlords. When you feel that for a premises then watching anyone treat it with less than total respect is worse than watching somebody drive your car badly, worse even than watching somebody handle your bike badly it’s more like going to a care home and seeing your parents treated badly.
Well the madness is all pervading so today Christies have an offer that is nothing more than insane, re reading it scares me! The offer will stay valid for one week and I have assured them that future offers will be lower. If they don’t accept this deal then it will be a case of waiting until Deloittes finally see through London Taverns and their lies and realise that the business is what it is.
On a lighter note my most gorgeous motorcycle visited my very good friends at Agincourt Auto’s today and they smiled and tickled her before giving her yet another clean pass MOT what a machine and what a fan base!
