Children at the Bar

They’ve started letting children drink.

They get younger and younger out at the sorts of bars I go to, it started a few years ago. But now they’re literally children. At most they’re in Junior High. They run around the bar, shouting at one another about in some incomprehensible tongue, getting drunker than they should, embarrassing themselves.

They fill up the pub, making things uncomfortable for the adults still willing to go out.

They never should have let children into the bar.

Which is what they’re doing.

They have to be.

It can’t possibly be anything to do with me….

  1. Yes. They're getting younger. That must be it. It MUST be.
