Miserable, humourless git

Note to all members:

If you are the acid-faced, bespectacled, arrogant, humourless, stick-up-yer-arse git who hissed across the pub to instruct me (nobody else, mind you, especially not the six foot tall bloke with a Scouse accent at the next table. Odd, that.) to quit enjoying banter with the other teams in the pub quiz (all of which, incidentally, lost, despite trying their very, very best) because it was, apparently, not funny, please be informed that at the next quiz I have every intention of sitting right next to you and shouting out all the wrong answers right in your miserable, po-faced, evidently-works-in-finance ear.

Sir: If you don't like banter, don't go down the pub.

They have monasteries for people like you.

(Oh, and by the way, sorry you lost. That's what happens when you try to cheat by writing down what the other teams say to each other... especially when they're deliberately saying the wrong answer )

Looking forward to whupping your arse (in the quiz, of course. I don't do fisticuffs, even if that is what you were angling for last night. Sorry to deny you the satisfaction of neanderthal pleasures) next Sunday, once again.

Suddenly I'd like to take part in a pub quiz. Any of the ones I've been to have never been that exciting!

Re: Miserable, humourless git

And this also goes to the miserable sod that hissed at my kids on Museum night in the Natural History Museum for making a noise. If you don't like kids, then don't go on museum night...

Well, the bloke sits there at every quiz, never cracks his face, and leaves the moment the quiz is over.

He was annoyed because a few of the teams were shouting out the wrong answers (like, ridiculously wrong answers), or dropping outrageous hints at the wrong answers (singing 'the Age of Aquarius' when the answer was 'Tommy', for example). He was really quite rude and, like I said, didn't seem to feel the need to hiss at anyone else in the pub, even though we were all at it.

One must presume that he was actually writing down these red herrings, and was miffed because he was losing. Badly. Very badly.

I bet he's a member of a quiz league back in England. He seems that type.

Probably collects engine numbers, too...

It would have ruined my evening, had it not been for the excellent company that surrounded me - not just at my own table, but the surrounding tables, too. They're a great crowd.

But it only takes one bad apple, doesn't it?

Miserable git!

It's down at the Shamrock in Wollishofen, every Sunday evening, from 19:00.

I'd recommend it: It's great fun! There's always a really decent crowd, lots of banter and backchat, and nobody (well, almost nobody) takes it too seriously.

Although there was a question a couple of weeks ago that I think I'll have to challenge...

As for our friend - I hope he is on the EF, and reads this. He probably thought some speccy little git in the pub was an easy scapegoat for his deep and bitter hatred of humanity.

Poor chap doesn't realise the power of t'internet...

(Does anyone know where I can get hold of some tar and feathers?)

Re: Miserable, humourless git

Never been a pub quiz enthusiast but I'm sure they are arranged to liven up a very dead pub and get people in there on nights when they might otherwise sit at home watching the box. It sounds like they should be thrilled with you DB, they'll have a full house thanks to your spirit. Maybe they could spike your adversary's blackberry cordial with a drop or two of it.

That's a splendid idea!

Re: Miserable, humourless git

Nasty stuff that... Is the Shamrock near the no.7 terminus, where the English pub used to be? The one with the union jack and no customers? They used to have waitresses who sound like your adversary once... sour and loved to pick on people and ensure they never set foot in there again... they didn't speak English either.
