Thread Name: Tight Folkies
Subject: RE: Tight Folkies
At our club we charge £2.50 on the door when we have a guest on. Not a princely sum I think you would agree. But there are a number of people who either try to avoid paying or make ridiculous comments about donating to my 'early retirement fund', which ranckles even more seeing as I often pay at the door as well as being doorman and MC! These are often the same people who you will see buying double rounds at the bar at last orders so they can expect the (poorly) paid guest to do an extra fifteen minutes.
I am glad to say that they are in a very small minority but they are still there all the same. Tight folkies? Hmmm - Generaly, no. But those that are, do so spectaculary well!
