Man Law?

If 3 webmasters set down at a table in a Pub in the afternoon - is it ok for one to order tea?

No, it's deeply wrong. I hope it wasn't you.

Long Island Iced Tea... maybe :)

... even that could be considered a 'foo-foo' drink by some... but it'll sure get you in a good mood. ;)

1. Only if he is from the British Commonwealth.
2. Only if he can handle pub 'tea'.
3. Only if he is not also a SEO. Note: SEOs have been known to try to pass as 'normal' by ordering tea. They can be discovered due to not actually drinking it.

Only if the other 2 order tea as well!
Where's that elderly fellow; he needs to write this one down!

A real man orders want he wants. Only girly boys whine about what some man cares to order.

So long as you don't stick out your pinkie finger whilst drinking the tea I don't see any problem with the act. :-P

What could be wrong with it? Pub tea tastes horrid, but if someone wants to drink it let them. Besides, you can't always drink beer - you might be driving.

The discussion topic is Man Law...

Unless he is an alcoholic, he needs to order a beer - after all, you're in a Pub.

If you don't have a very good reason for ordering a beer, then you're not part of the brotherhood. It's that simple. If you're not up for a beer, don't go to the Pub in the first place.

That my friends is a Man Law.

>>That my friends is a Man Law.

And that my friend, is the sort of BS that real men should not put up with. Sounds to me like a bunch of middle-school girly boys trying their best to fit in. I can't imagine any one of my friends insisting that I *must* drink a beer. It's quite likely that continued insistence by any one of them would result in one of them picking up his teeth.

Then again, I've never been much for following any law that I don't think makes sense. Sheeple...

Now, with all that said, if I'm in a pub, you can bet there'll be a drink in my hand.

Hey, I've been outside of my cave more in the last two months than I have been in the last two years. I've even been in some social settings. I'll buy you a drink in Vegas, but I won't insist that you have to drink it. ;)

Britons (male or female) must never order tea in a pub, out of respect for the Queen.

In some exceptional circumstances (eg near death experience, inadvertently becoming a parent, sudden drop in Google rankings, etc) it may be acceptable to drink a cup of tea in a pub when offered by the landlord/lady in response to aforesaid exceptional circumstances.

Ideally, a packet of pork scratchings should also be purchased to avoid any confusion.

Why on earth would you go to a pub to drink tea! :0

Drink what you want, but go to a specialist for real tea.

Remembering the lovey-dovey songs you listed in another thread, I am seeing a picture form in my crystal orb. Anything you'd care to tell us about?

Man Law:

A very respectable law, and there are dues and fees to be paid for violating this law. For me, last week it was having to deal with a couple of thouroughly potted brothers at 4:00am. Mind you, I will not be visiting that Pub again for my socialization. It was a mistake, I knew it was wrong, and I paid for my indiscretions. I would like to think that 3 webmasters would be a friendlier crowd than the regulars.

The question is NOT what you'd choose to do, it has to do with "Man Law." I used to think the way you do - but it was pointed out to me that this is wrong, and I now believe it too. It's not about being tough enough to make your own decisions, it's about being tough enough give up what you really want to be a part of the brotherhood.

Drinking beer together is a ritual. You are doing something together and that sends a very positive signal to everyone at the table.

If you want to be different, go ahead. Just realize that by doing this you are separating yourself from the brotherhood.

And so it is a Man Law.

You may be separating yourself from the brotherhood but here in the UK you may also be separating yourself from your driver's licence if you have your car with you ;)

I know the DD laws are not so strict in some US states but they are strict here where there is an automatic ban if you are over the limit. That is why you will often see the driver in the company drinking tea, coffee, coke, soda water and lime juice or whatever :)

How can I say this tactfully? Ah, forget about tact.

Any 'brotherhood' in which simply sharing an alcoholic beverage serves as the sole price of entry, leaves a lot to be desired. Anyone familiar with the term 'bar friends'?
