Roger the zimmer Freedom of Speech: Long-Winded BS (47) RE: Freedom of Speech: Long-Winded BS 28 Jul 99

I feel a thread creep coming on...When I was on my only visit to USA I was 25 and put out to find out the minimum drinking age everywhere seemed to be 21 (some of our group were younger) and our hosts tended to offer us root beer or cola (but a nice Zinfandel in Chicago, I remember, but I digress again). When trying to get into bars we were miffed to be asked for ID ,which unless we had our passports with us we didn't, despite surely looking over 21 (in my case at least!). Then we were puzzled to be asked:"Are you a vet?" which to a Brit means a person who spends most of his time with his arm up a cow's arse (sorry, ass: arm up an ass's arse).
I think they just wanted to keep us (me?) out. Exit dragged away by friends shouting "I've been thrown out of better dives than this"
Exit dragged away by friends, typing: "I've been thrown off more relevant threads than this!"
