When you have an eight months pregnant wife and England are playing their first game in the world cup it seems obvious to try and find a pub that is showing the match but that also has a no-smoking area.
Finding such a pub, however, is another matter.
Several pubs in the center of Bristol advertise outside that they have no-smoking areas. But go inside and ask where it is and you'll be told that there isn't one today because of the football. Or there is one, but they haven't got any screens showing the football in the non-smoking area. Most at least had the decency to look a bit sheepish when telling an obviously pregnant woman that she (effectively) wasn't welcome. One decided I was being rude when I asked why they had stopped having a no-smoking area just for today.
Roll on 2007 when this filthy and selfish habit will be banished outdoors.
