Hello, Autumn

Well, that was a hot and bothersome few months. We've been quietly wilting in a corner, sipping cold wine and trying to avoid having to go out and wear summer clothes.

This newsletter gives you a little round-up of what we've been grumbling about since June.

Merry Autumn, everyone. Put the kettle on.

Naomi

Time at the bar

NAOMI on bad service at her local.

"If there is one thing I cannot abide, it is bad customer service. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, customer service is not hard to get right. A village pub should be an easy gig, surely?"

Judy

WLTM: an age appropriate man

JUDY on old blokes approaching young ladies on a night out.

"Old men, maybe it’s not clear, but the following are not invitations to continue bothering us:

‘We’re just having a good catch up because we haven’t seen each other for ages.’
‘We don’t want to dance, because like we said, we’re busy catching up at the moment.’
‘No, I don’t want another drink. No, really. No, I don’t want to try yours.’"
