Belinda’s Travel Diary

Friday, 31 Mar 2006

Location: Keswick, UK

MapYesterday I worked a split shift at a pub here in Keswick (11-3 & 6-finish). A regular customer came in to drink and gamble, as he'd just received his weekly pay. Twice I changed two £20 notes into 1 x £10 note and £10 in £1 coins. Both times he came back wanting the £10 notes changed into pound coins for the gambling maching.
I watched as he spent more than £50 on drinking pints of cider and gambling. In Aussie dollars this is about $130. I left at 3pm for my break and he was still drinking, smoking and gambling when I came back to work at 6pm.
I don't understand.
I have had enough of working in a pub.
