Happy New Year

Aren’t artists great?

I went into two of my pubs of choice tonight.

The first one has pleasant staff who are always friendly and cordial to us and what’s more, they talk to all of us very nicely. We congregate there and spend a lot of money in the course of the year. It’s owned by a well-known painter.

The second one also has pleasant staff who are always friendly and cordial to us. What’s more, they talk to us nicely and we tend to congregate there. We spend a lot of money in the course of the year. It’s owned by business people.

Tonight, most of us enjoyed the night in the second establishment, who recognised our years-long patronage by providing music, food and a couple of complimentary drinks which didn’t cost much in the great scheme of things.

How did the artist-publican acknowledge our years-long patronage?

He didn’t.

    Happy New Year, Bock!

    Artists are nearly always crap business people. I know this because my father’s one.

    Although he’s never run a pub, to my knowledge

    It needed to be said, and the latter pub agrees with your sentiments. Unfortunatley it falls on deaf ears where it matters. Being an artist is not an excuse for being deaf, mean, or an ass. I think these must be qualities that this man posseses regardless of his artistic inclinations, or maybe he is just fool for not giving a token of gratitude. Either way it pissed me off too.
