Hello, this is kind of light-hearted but also I do seriously wonder sometimes about how many of the lical wetherspoons drinkers/ breakfast eaters are men on their own. Sometimes it looks like a men's hostel at breakfast, but with alcohol for some.

It makes me wonder about how many people there are who don't make it to wetherspoons, and where they are.

Does anyone else notice this?

Maybe the ones drinking alcohol at breakfast have fed-up stbx wives at home?

JeanSeberg Sat 27-Feb-16 15:48:41

Do you mean where are the equivalent females?

Nightworkers having a drink after work?

My local spoonies is like this, but mostly elderly men. They are there from when it opens, food is cheap there, they all know eachother. I think it's actually a really good thing for them if they're lonely? When I go in there before a night out I usually have a game of draughts with a group of them grin

My grandpa has started going to his local one for breakfast a few times a week. My grandma died at the start of the year and he goes because it gets him out the house, he can have a chat with people and because it's cheaper for him to get a cooked breakfast there than to make one at home. It breaks my heart that he is on his own (we live a good 3 hour train ride away and can't drive) but I'm glad he's out the house and talking to people. He enjoys sitting with his paper and then going for a walk around the village after.

Was a regular in a Weatherspoons in Liverpool, it was a pub pre WS.

There was a collection of builders, the 'morning after the night before' (me and my friend fitted in there), pay day and so it was a 'treat' and just old blokes who wanted to get out and would flit between the pubs and bookies. My friend (both of us female) would also meet up after a night shift, as did some of the men.

The food was decent and cheap.

I had quite a few male friends die, in their 40's, because of over indulgence of alcohol, who fitted in the 'builders' crew.

It makes me wonder about how many people there are who don't make it to wetherspoons, and where they are.

I'm not sure I quite understand. There are literally billions of people who don't make it to Wetherspoons in the morning. They're in all sorts of places.

What ElderlyKoreanLady said!

I'm not entirely sure if it's supposed to be, but the OP is hilarious grin

But how do they get their breakfast?

My dad goes to Wetherspoons in the daytime with his friend who was recently widowed. They like it because it's cheap and gets them out of the house. They don't start on the beer at breakfast though.

ElderlyKoreanLady Sat 27-Feb-16 16:49:40

They prefer a Greggs breakfast I think.

WorraLiberty Sat 27-Feb-16 16:49:49

But how do they get their breakfast?

Errm, how do you get yours?

I find the kitchen is a good place to start.

Lanark2 Sat 27-Feb-16 16:50:48

But this all make it sound like a men's hostel. ..which is sad. What is the female equivalent?

WorraLiberty Sat 27-Feb-16 16:53:06

Females are not banned from Wetherspoons. They can go there if they want to.

There is no need for a female equivalent confused

If you fancy a fry up, just go in and order one.

ElderlyKoreanLady Sat 27-Feb-16 16:56:01

I can just go in Worra?! I've been dressing up as an old fella for years to get my fry up!

WorraLiberty Sat 27-Feb-16 16:58:13

EKL grin

you have to buy a fake beard like in The Life Of Brian

WorraLiberty Sat 27-Feb-16 17:02:13

I misplaced my tweezers for 3 days last week.

By the time I found them, the last thing I needed was a fake beard.

ghostyslovesheep Sat 27-Feb-16 17:03:13

I only said 'this breakfast is good enough for Jehovah!'

It's cos men can't cook, innit? Whereas all the ladies obvs know how to rustle up an egg and sausage butty. hmm

Pipbin Sat 27-Feb-16 17:07:23

My dad used to go out for a cooked breakfast when he retired and my mum was still working.
He'd act all unloved for and the ladies at the greasy spoon would give him an extra sausage.

But how do they get their breakfast?
Well they go to the bar and the order it. Then a nice person cooks it for them.
