No, public skating rink. When dear old Dad checked out why his daughter was sitting on the curb when he arrived to pick her up,
teen aged," Assistant Manager," said it was because I was wearing a tank top which was against the rules. No it was not a tank top it was a sleeveless blouse. Dad called the Manager the next day and got my money back for me. Still I was totally mortified as only a 12 year old can be.

My boyfriend and I were driving from Brighton to Norfolk. We needed a comfort break and were both thirsty so we stopped at a roadside hostelry, possibly around Suffolk.
We ordered drinks and he visited the little boys room. When he returned I visited the little girls room and we settled down with our drinks.
At this the barmaid started screeching at us that we were only there for the loo and chucked us out! [Roll Eyes]

What was the point of throwing you out after you had used the loo?

This has happened to me, I was with my daughter and baby grandaughter who was in a pram, and went into a village pub for food.

We were told that we couldn't take a child in the pub but could sit outside in the 'beer garden' it was cold and damp and full of smokers. We thought it wasn't a good idea to take a baby into a fume filled area....

Four of us used to get "banned for life" at least once a month from the West Ealing Wimpy Bar. We could only assume that it was because the waitresses (we used to sit down to dawdle over a coke in those days) thought chatting to us preferable to clearing tables.

Guess who's job it was to persuade Wendy (the manageress) to let us back in after a few days.

So, let me get this straight-- you actually purchased beverages and she still chucked you out?

What an idiot. You might have stuck around and bought more.

I was kicked out of a seedy bar in Brooklyn for being under age (only 15), back when the drinking age here was 18. The ironic thing was that just about everyone in the place was under age. If they had uniformly enforced that rule then the place would have been empty! Later I found out that one of my, errr... friends had ratted me out. I moved on to a higher class joint, one owned by an elderly woman who used to sleep in the place at night, and who tried seducing one of my friends.

Unlikely, surely, as the containers (glasses) would belong to the pub.

They could well have taken the drinks, if not the glasses in which they were served.

We just scuttled out, angry and embarrassed . The pub was full of 'proper' customers staring at us.

I've been in a few places where it's been obvious that they prefer our place to our company, but never actively thrown out. But I always remember one odd instance of being refused service....

We were driving down from Kingston to Albany the Sunday after 9/11. Come lunchtime, we saw a sign on the highway advertising a restaurant in the next small town. Can't remember what it was called - it had a disconcertingly large industrial plant smack in the middle. Anyway, we found Mom's Diner, and it was mostly empty apart from one family being served a large meal, and a guy leaning on the bar. We tried sitting at a table for a while. I tried going up to the bar to see if perhaps you ordered from there. There were two waitresses, one ferrying plates to the occupied table - but it was when the other took to wiping tables in the furthest corner of the room in preference to giving us so much as eye contact that we realised we were not going to be eating here.

What was going on?

Back in the 1950s I was traveling around Germany with a friend. We both developed bad colds, and one evening we decided to go to a place where they served alcohol, drink one stiff drink, and then go back to the place where we were staying.

We were very warmly dressed; there was nothing remotely sexy-looking about us, especially since we felt so lousy. We were turned away because the place would not admit women who were not accompanied by men.

I've been thrown off the track at Brands Hatch, which is pretty good considering that I've never driven a racing car!

The school I was at was a bit keen on running, and a group of us were entered in a "fun run" (years later I can wince at the ironic juxtaposition) there, though no-one seems to have read the small print and as a result I and another lad were fished forcefully off the circuit for being under-age. Possibly the slowest lap of the short circuit ever and, as a result, I've still never seen the outer circuit.

I got thrown out of a school music class once. My hearing doesn't work properly, so I've never been musical. Anyway, our school had a visiting music teacher, who decided that I was faking the poor hearing in order to be the class clown. I was chucked out of class, and told I'd be belted later. Fortunately she didn't carry out the threatened belting.

Mine makes me sound like such a nerd. When I was at university some of my fellow lefties and I would gatecrash finance meetings of the student union and pick faults with the budget and generally ask awkward questions. Come a new year and a new set of full time officers, carefully manipulated by the paid staff, the meeting became closed and we were ejected. The following year I was appointed to the committee myself.

I was thrown out of my high-school library once. May I just say that the librarian, who bore an astonishing resemblance to an animated goose, had absolutely no sense of humor.
