I love the Greasy Vera’s one. Ultimate kudos for that! My God, I spent some time there. Me and my mates genuinely had an account there. We were always straightening up for last week and getting something “on the tab” to be paid next week. A Vera’s special, cup of tea and a wagon wheel - fvvck me, that’d straighten you out after a night on the p155 in town.
There was a real mix of people that hung out at Greasy V’s. Lads and lasses on their way home, prozzies, pimps, dealers, coppers, Yardies, taxi drivers, students, etc. All having a laugh and getting things on the tab for this week and paying for last week’s stuff.
For the life for me though, I can’t remember the guys name (and I saw him every week for years).
Cheers DeeJayOne. You’ve made my day.
