Be honest, do you steal pint glasses from pubs?

Tom Hanks doesn’t think we do, for some reason.

TOM HANKS AND Meryl Streep were on the Ryan Tubridy show last week, promoting their movie, The Post.

Both reminisced about the times previous they’ve spent in Ireland filming for various projects – Tom was here for Saving Private Ryan, Meryl for Dancing At Lughnasa.

Meryl Streep shared with Ryan that some of her family came from Donegal, even naming her daughter Grace after Grace Strain, her’s great great grandmother.

Hanks spoke of staying in Gorey, Co. Wexford and recalled wanting to stop into a nearby pub while there. He told Ryan that early the next morning when passing the pub, he noticed that the glasses were lined up outside on all of the benches and the ledges of the pub.

In Ireland they don’t steal the pint glasses”.

Don’t they, Tom? Don’t they?

Speaking from personal experience, I can count 10 (ten) Coors Light pint glasses currently sitting in my press at home right now.

Beyond that, I have 9 (nine) red glass candle holders which I have sourced from two well-known and oft-frequented Dublin establishments which I cannot name because I don’t want to be arrested or have to give them back.

These ones, to be exact.

I have a problem, I know.

Seriously though, what about the times when you’re away somewhere and you get served in a really snazzy glass? Surely it’s straight into the handbag or under the jacket?

Like, are they even shops where you can just buy pint glasses? I have never, ever come across a selection that I’ve had to pay for.
