Pint of order

I see people now can't have a pint because they can't drive to the pub.

When I was young, almost the only person in the parish who had a car was the parish priest. You won`t be surprised to learn that he did not use it for driving to the pub. The only thing that stopped people going there was the fact that they did not have the 10 pence for the pint.
