  1. oh dear! that might describe us.. the 'dullards' ??!! mind you some of them had more than a pint during that time (each) and i didn't touch the sarnies, got bad stomach ache from them once so never again as for me anyway, i Do like doing the quiz but it would be nice if they had someone who could read, and get through a sentence without a hitch, then it wouldn't go on too long
  2. has anyone been randomly or otherwise, chosen to answer a survey on behalf of a government organisation ? thoughts please
  3. oh well at least it seems no one who goes there or works there looks on here, i'm not commenting on the quiz itself e.g. the questions or if some annoying people cheat, i'm just pointing out the ridiculously poor way it's run
  4. yes, i thought it would flag up my earlier comment before posting but evidently it didn't, i just wondered if anyone else had been to this particular pub and knew what i meant , as for someone mentioning the Lathkill (presumably near Woodthorpe?) the Fat Cat does that, there is no microphone so the guy has to walk round shouting the questions in every room . as for not liking quizzes, i agree i've been to pubs before where if i'm not doing the quiz it's a real distraction. and if i am, people having a loud conversation nearby is distracting!
  5. has anyone been to the quiz at the Rising Sun near Fulwood on Sunday night in the last few months ? it's an absolute joke, there have been at least 4 lads who have attempted to do it, one is semi decent, the others either can't get through a whole question without fluffing a word or more, they repeat things needlessly, and sometimes like tonight drag it out so long that people were losing the will to live. ok, don't go, you all say, but it's a great place, and their quiz is Sometimes half decent when they can get through the questions and finish at a reasonable time
  6. try and find one which teaches them how to indicate, and/or doesn't tell them they can immediately forget what they've learnt the second they've passed their test!
  7. great to see i'm not alone here, and as for people shouting , i was in what i thought was a respectable out of town pub but just a few drunken idiots who looked far too well paid and semi decent to be making a hell of a noise. i'm not a killjoy ... there were 2 sides to the pub but there was no room to sit/stand in the quieter side although more people in there . i refused to go to the bar to get a second drink and of course, the pub manager/landlord loves the drinkers cos they're making them more money!
  8. why does it have to be loud? i'm not suggesting it should be really quiet, just at a medium level then if they automatically equate 'loud' with being 'better' they can gradually turn it up as the evening goes on .
  9. does anyone else like to hear music when they go to a pub/bar, but not so loud that you can't talk/hear your friends i complained in one place recently and i thought the bar staff were going to be quite helpful, and just get the dj to turn it down a notch ... but they just stood around the bar and had a laugh about me Fair enough if it is late in the evening but i'm sure lots of people would like to use places early on and not be drowned out by what's playing ... but not just get a narrow minded suggestion to go to a Wetherspoons pub where there's (usually) no music
  10. it prompted me to do a search on the one i used tonight, and the kebab shop on the same road (in Woodseats S8 ) .. both have 4 star ratings, so that's fairly reassuring . spread the word about that place in Beighton
  11. anyone else go in some pubs where the staff are quite unfriendly? i don't mean they're rude or hostile but even tho they might not be on great money (neither are some of the customers!) they could have a little bit of customer service skill. not to mention serving customers in turn and not leave some waiting at the bar for ages! i know it can't always be easy knowing who's there first Then there are the female staff who might be on the attractive side and be really standoffish. yes, we know we can't 'have' them, and some of us have partners and/or 'children' a similar age anyway, but it would be nice for them to not avoid serving customers or clearing their tables. i've been to some pubs where the staff are really beautiful and very nice with it too, which is a real pleasure (and i don't mean that in a sexual way!!) . sadly they never stay.
  12. no 'thread jumping ' ... that's what the thread is for ! thanks for replying . a friend told me about this one yesterday so i'm hoping to go along to it . i'm going to pre -register soon .
  13. hi, i've just seen this thread, i'm totally deaf in my right ear , and it would be good to meet others who understand each others problems! obviously a quiet place would be good to go to .. not necessarily a club (unless we started one) but just a few from here.
  14. i'd like to start a small self help group for people like myself who have a problem with gambling . Just to sit round the table at a pub or coffee shop and talk honestly about our problems and maybe offer each other help and advice to cut down or stop i know there is G A and this is nothing to do with that also hope i won't get any 'you've only got yourselves to blame if you can't control it' etc. am thinking on the lines of meeting somewhere fairly cheap, and easy to get to e.g. Sheaf Island Wetherspoons at the bottom of Ecclesall Road, Sunday 8pm anyone can email me at my username at hotmail.com if they like . cheers
  15. hi there day-break . did u find anyone ? maybe us on this thread could all join together?
