the lads that the new chap and his lady would look after them as he had for a few years now.
Considering it was the lads that looked after the Bar and not the other way around, they were not too sure about this.
But they decided to give the new people a fighting chance.
On day one there seemed to be a problem. He walked into the bar and introduced himself. “I am James and I now own this pub.
What I say goes. So if you don’t like it, just leave. And by the way I don’t like all of those motor bikes parked at the front. They give the wrong impression. So from now on they need to be parked around the back out of the way. Do I make myself clear.” He boomed out his orders.
I am trying to get a better class of customer in here, so there are going to be quite a few changes.
“What about us regulars. We come here most days. We spend a lot over that bar hire. Said Brian the Bike.
“You are regulars and will not go away. Who else would let you scruffy lot into their pub. That’s why you always come here. I am trying to attract normal people here.” Said James in not a very nice tone.
“Keep on like this and we just may leave and not come back.” Shouted Brian But James just laughed and said no other publican would allow them or their smelly dirty bikes anywhere near their pubs. Brian walked over to his mates in the mobile bar. They all heard the comments James made and were very upset. So they all got up and walked out of the bar. Leaving half full glasses on the bar.
“See you later boys.” Shouted James after them. But not one of them replied.There was another pub about a mile away and they started using this. It wasn’t the same as the Blue. But it would do for now they thought. Of course the news soon spread back to their old pub. But James really believed they would come crawling back with their tails between their legs. He was sure they needed him and not the other way around.
A couple of months went by and they had not stepped foot in the Blue the mobile bar hire pub. Not one of them went back.
They heard his business was awful and he was loosing money badly. But still decided to wait for him to come to them.
The Biker lads had never met James’ Lady. So one day when a very attractive Lady walked into their pub, they thought nothing of it.
This Lady ordered a vodka and tonic, sat down by herself and drank it. She then ordered another and did the same. She had
not spoken to any of the lads but did return a smile from Brian.
The guys assumed she was a local girl and thought no more of it. The Lady then got up and left. A couple of days later this same Lady entered the pub again. Same drink, same seat. So one of the bikers decided to talk to her.
He introduced himself to her and found out her name was Brenda. She had recently moved into the area. Her partner worked
very long hours and his business was struggling. She just had to get out of the house now and again.
Over the next couple of weeks they saw quite a lot of her. She remembered all of their names and was always up for a chat.
They started to respect her and accepted her as a friend.
