A Tuesday in April – It never was easy to be lonely in a pub but with new technology and a dog it’s impossible

A woman sits in a corner with a pint of beer and a dog next to her for company who she feeds regularly from a packet of crisps and strokes it fondly all the time. However, given the digital age she is able conjure a friend instead of a fellow drinker by phoning a friend and having a loud conversation with her or him. Once the conversation is over she encourages another dog to come and sample her crisps. Pubs are never now and never have been places of loneliness but there are other ways of conquering it if there is there is a dearth of companions.
