    Hey all,

    Is it just me who find's them facinating? So many write the "locals/usuals" of the local pub to be nothing more than drunks, but there's just somthing about them.. What made them that way? What's their story? I wouldn't call them "drunks", but they certainly like their ale.

    I dunno, I just love it when I walk into a strange pub, come in the next week and find the same people are there, in the same place - doing the same thing, the same rapport with the bartender, shouting across the room to their peers...

    They do have a certain, very unusual, charm, just wondering if anyone else get's this...

    One of them cornered me while I was walking home from school. He demanded to know if I wrote the constitution.

    Again walking home from school I saw another one slumped against the back wall of the supermarket. As I approached I heard him groaning and noticed some pink stuff smeared on the wall behind him. As I passed I saw that he had a six-pack of raspberry yoghurt into which he was pouring brown sauce.

    Charming people really.
