I Bought My Local Pub
On a whim. It had bee up for sale for a while and the only people interested were property developers who wanted to de-license it and turn it into two houses.

I wasn't fucking having that! So I bought it.

To be fair - I did have an ulterior motive. I'd once been barred from it in the most bizzare circumstances. Some trouble had kicked off between my ex and the landladies daughter. The daughter had verbally lashed my ex for her treatment of me - cheating on me when I was working away - and a massive scene had taken place. It ended with the landlady barring my ex, her new boyfriend and, for some unexplicable reason, me! I was 300 miles away at the time!

At least if I owned the pub I couldn't get barred again.

You can get barred from your own pub
Local hardman owns a pub in my town but doesn't run it himself. He was out drinking in a different one in town when someone accidently spilt their beer on him. Like the reasonable gentleman he is, he smacked them.

My town runs a pubwatch scheme - you get barred from one, you get barred from all, no exceptions. Because of the fight he got barred in this pub... and proceeded to get barred in every single pub in town, including his own. Now all we do is see him sitting on a bench, drinking and smoking all alone while his "mates" have abandoned him to stay warm and dry.
