So this morning I am out on my bike, a mix of town and country riding. I am on the town bit, Rainsford Road on the approach to the Esso garage for the pedants amongst you out there. It is about 7.15 am ish.
I am on the pavement as there were a few lorries about and its narrow down there. Coming toward me i see a group of young guys obviously on their way to some kind of building work. Why is another question. Alongside them is an older looking guy, he is looking dishevelled even against the plaster and paint covered builders. I anticipate the situation and bump down into the road. The builder boys dont even notice as they all to a man have their heads in cans of energy drinks.
The older guy starts shouting at me along the lines of “you shouldnt even be on the f***ing pavement you w****er”. Fair enough but then I notice he is drinking a can of cheap strong lager with one hanging out of each of his coat pockets. Three on the go before 7.30 am!
Unsure if I am impressed, sad, amazed or scared.

  1. Shaun, what have I told you about drinking in town for fecks sake? Do it in your garden otherwise you’ll get yourself in trouble.

  2. Yes mate it was him, he nicks a few cans of Tennants Special Brew from the Wine & Spirits counter. He’s been warned but what can you do?
