    yeah that's right if you got the bottle with the water you had to proposition the barmaid, then she gave you the money, wasn't that it?

    Well, I've propositioned a few barmaids in my time but never under those circumstances.

    I find them a fascinating study - underpaid, overworked and subjected to sexual harrassment every working night. Kind of like being a hooker without the benefits.
    Go to work, get married, have some kids, pay your taxes, pay your bills, watch your tv, follow fashion, act normal, obey the law and repeat after me: "I am free."

    I do hope you are not speaking from experience but how about money.

    Money.

    If you're good at it - i.e. young, gorgeous and able to display empathy with a bunch of pathetic losers, a girl can make a fortune at it.

    Can't say I've ever seen a barmaid driving a Porsche.

    lol what I was pretty much getting at was whether you meant monetary or perks of a sexual nature

    And Brian, no, I'm not speaking from experience. That stint in Vegas just never worked out... :P

    *added*

    On a more serious note, this might be another interesting topic under Serious Discussions. Legislation of drugs seemed to be a hot topic. This may be as well

    Urrgh. Why is it that all hot topics have to do with allowing people to perform the lowest of behavior? And it always seems to be, I wouldn't do it, but others have the right to.

    Having sex is low behaviour?

    Given that I'm now working as a barman, my first hand experience of my co-workers is that they swear like sailors, drink like fish, and smoke like chimneys.

    I'll pass for now, thank you...

    Swearing like sailors, drinking like fish, smoking like chimneys.... A plus, a plus, and a neutral! *shrug

    Some guys are so picky. Oh well, it makes it easier for the rest of us.

    Well, the girls serving in my favourite watering hole are not English, so they are relatively well behaved.

    Posting here, because it is stereotypically manly.

    So woodpeckers keep on putting holes in my house, so my family has been at war with them for a while. I just shot one with a crossbow.

    Victory is good. I think I'll leave him impaled by that dart on my front lawn as a warning.
