... there is collateral damage.
So, I was out for a few small beers with Duncan and some other blogger types as arranged by Jeff. It was a pretty good evening, meeting folk, and chatting about stuff.
So anyway, we're chatting away. Someone was saying something interesting, and some jakey bastard flyering person wandered over. They tried to break into the conversation, and failed several times. The chap speaking was talking sense, and we other bloggers were all interested to hear the full story...
Eventually, the guy managed to find a pause long enough to break in to our drinking and chatting, to pimp some crap fringe show or other. I suggested we would be drinking, and chatting, and not interested.
He left the flyer on the table.
I told him to take it with him and fuck off.
He fucked off. But left the flyer.
I screwed up the flyer and threw it at him, and hit him...
... and it ricocheted off him and hit a lady at another table who was enjoying a drink, and otherwise minding her own business.
Of course, I apologised to the lady, and said in my defence that I had hit the flyering bastard with it first. She and her friends resumed their drinks.
Ah well. You win some and you lose some.
