Smokestack Lightnin' Posted July 31, 2020 Share Posted July 31, 2020 (edited) We have two Wetherspoon pubs in my town here which re-opened recently as you probably all know. It was quite ironic that Tim Martin, the owner was sitting in front of me one Sunday afternoon last January talking to the manager. I went to talk to him when the time was right because I like his politics and the articles he writes in the seasonal magazine he puts out. (I loved the way he put down that nauseating little prick Owen Jones in a YT video and mentioned that.) I didn't want to piss him off so I thought I'd just ask him what his thoughts were on the looming cashless society, 5G and the police state about to be imposed. I made him laugh and got the 'selfie'. I asked him for a job as a professional speaker to travel the country informing all the staff of how society is changing because I listen to good people almost every day online etc so it would be just a case of making notes and shamelessly plagiarising (all for a good cause). I wrote to him outlining my plan but no joy (he probably thought I was a couple of cards short of a full deck.) Then a few weeks later all the pubs were closed down. - that'll teach you to listen to me Tim. The Wetherspoons pubs now look like something out of a Terry Gilliam send up science fiction movie with plastic screen divides all over the place and repositioned tables. The guy serving the drinks does so only at the till where there is a plastic screen surrounding the two cash registers and everyone queues up now in single file leaving 90% of the bar area free. What is it with people that they can't comprehend that if a killer pathogen is lurking somewhere, no plastic screen is ever going to deter the beast! The best spectacle though is the huge song and dance people make about washing or sanitizing their hands now. One guy in the toilet washed his hands and dried them as normal with the hand drier, walked out and over to his drinking buddies making all these exagerrated hand washing movements for 15 more minutes even though his hands were completely dry. Other people are also walking in, squirting some lotion on to their hands and walking through the pub washing their hands, twisting and turning their arms in the air right up to their fucking elbows. STOP IT! It's really pissing me off the way you subjugated imbeciles think that all these big demonstrations of a banal everyday chore is notching up kudos from friends, strangers and bar staff. It's like watching little infants trying to impress their teacher. What really made my day yesterday was when a guy aged around 55 walked in with a T shirt on which read ...' SOCIAL DISTANCING''. Underneath in smaller writing it said 'IF YOU CAN READ THIS THEN YOU ARE PROBABLY TOO CLOSE'! Christ, did I have a laugh at that! The idiot just smiled back. Where on earth do these people come from? If a Martian or any other alien being landed here, I would be too embarrassed to admit to being of the same species as humans. 'Please Mr Alien, just zap me with your ray gun'.
