We all laugh at people with stutters, it’s as natural as bullying a ginger at school or whispering ‘who ate all the pies?’ when someone fat walks past. But even these freaks of nature have the right to be served in pubs.
Unfortunately, staff at a pub in Newport thought teetotaller Tony Woodsford was pissed out of his face because of his slurred speech and refused to give him a coffee. In fact, he just has a bad stammer.
“I have never felt so embarrassed in my life. It’s the first time in my life I have been turned down for breakfasts – and to make matters worse, I don’t even drink,” stuttered Tony.
It was only after Tony’s pal stepped in and backed up his story that the manager backed down. Half an hour later, Tony finally managed to finish the sentence “no sugar please” and the order was placed.
