The 13 people you will meet in the pub tonight

Shots for everyone!

1. The One Who Forgot His Wallet

Also known as “Short Arms Deep Pockets” or “In The Toilet When It’s His Round”

2. The Know-It-All

Every sentence starts with:

Well actually

Or:

The interesting thing about that is…

3. The Aul Lad

He is sitting in his usual spot and he is not moving for you, or for anyone. And if he wants to tell you a story you will damn well listen to it.

Bonus: Sometimes he has a dog.

4. The ‘Good Pint’ Expert

Before you can get it to your lips they have their paws around it, examining its head, bubbles or lack of, colour, aroma etc etc.

They might also bore you to tears about why you should be drinking craft beer, while drinking a Blue Moon.

Terrible pint that. Terrible (It IS terrible, to be fair, via Imgur)

5. The Shots Enthusiast

I BOUGHT YOU THIS SHOT AND YOU’RE GOING TO DRINK IT WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.

6. The People Who are Going ‘Out Out’

Irish people either go ‘out’ or they go ‘out out’.

The ones who are going ‘out out’ are wearing high heels/their good pointy leather ‘going out’ shoes.

They also start roaring at regular intervals post-11pm that they’d “BETTER GO. LADS, WE’D BETTER GO”.

7. The Photographer

Get in for a photo lads.

Two minutes later:

Photo lads, smile!

Three minutes after that:

Oh this one’s going right up on Facebook!

8. The Drunk Person Roaring and Banging Into People

9. The Person Being Banged Into and Roared at by The Drunk People

10. The Sound Barman/woman

Remembers your drink order, comes to you when it’s your turn, smiles, is generally sound.

11. The Not Sound Barman/woman

Goes at a glacial pace, forgets your order, gets it wrong, overcharges, showboats.

12. The Bar Legend

13. The Person Who Draws in Your Guinness

This. Is. Not. Ok.

How about I put my fingers in your drink?
