My third ‘sorry’ was to the two bus spotters* in the Cliff Pub.
As I mentioned Thursday I like my coke really cold so get a separate glass of ice to pour the coke over the ice.
One Saturday night when we were in the Cliff, my glass of ice had quite a bit of water in it. As I didn’t want to dilute my coke I needed somewhere to get rid of the excess water.
One of the bus spotters finished his pint then said to the other one, who had about a third of a pint left, “are you ready”. The other one nodded and they both left the lounge.
So I went over to the table were the bus spotters had been sitting and poured the excess ice water into the glass which had the lager in it.
About five minutes later they returned ! ! !
The one who’s lager I had watered down picked up his glass and stared at it. He then said to his friend that his glass was fuller than he had remembered, to which his friend told him not to be so stupid…
* they were two men who talked of nothing but buses all night. Ask Chris as he’s been in the Cliff when they were there - and experienced them in bus spotting mode ! ! !
