Dougie and I went to a small family own bar/restruant last night - The owners remembered us and we ordered simple stuff like omlettes and chips and salad. The wife took the order and we were sure she understood. Next thing we knew was the husband came to te table P***ed as a parret and reaked of booze. He politey asked us what we wanted. The man could not stand up but still he too the order and confirmed it to his wife. He staggered off and 10 minutes later he appeared again smartly dress in his work uniform - He appears to be a security guard somewhere. i was totally flabbergasted as off he trotts to do the night shift. Surely they would smell the booze on him when he arrived, that would be instant dismissal turning up for work drunk in the UK - are the rules so very different here in BG.

I remember some years ago my girlfriends dad was a train driver and he always popped into his local on the way to his shift, I went with him once just for what I thought was a quick one but to my astonishment he drank 4 pints before going off to drive his train which at that time a 2 hour journey and high speed. so yes it does happen and it probably will continue for a number of years.

Thanks VG. Yes I am beginning to think you are right there! One of our neighbours has a few glasses of rakki and works hard all day bless him, has few ore at lunch time and most likely in the evening too. Sometimes when we meet him he looks pied eyed - Drinking is a way of life for most in the village. I just have to learn to mind my own business and leave the alone g
