Called to the bar

Peter Cross explains why he’s just put himself forward as a voluntary bar person

I’ve been a member of the club a few months shy of a decade. During that time there have been five presidents, three managers and hundreds of newsletters. And of the many newsletters I’ve seen almost all contain a line or two imploring members to help out behind the bar. The hope is to have enough volunteers to have one person for each day of the month. It’s a losing battle. Helping out only once a month is the big selling point which to my mind is a bit like urging people to go to the dentist as it doesn’t hurt too much.

I read these guilt inducing pleas so often and felt so bad that I did what any sensible person does in the circumstances: I stopped reading the newsletters. But a seed had been planted and I continued to feel awful seeing the same faces smiling at me as I ordered my pints of Mac Gold. Without exception each person is good natured, unfazed, and friendly. I told myself that I’d never be able to master the till: I’m a late adopter and struggle with anything invented since the sundial.
