SNEAKY fuckers who do not get their round in face an £80 on-the-spot fine, it has been confirmed.
A pilot scheme will see undercover agents tightly monitor drinkers to spot those who accept a drink from everybody else but vanish the instant it is their turn.
A spokesman for the British Institute of Innkeepers said: “Round dodgers cost their friends up to £220 a year and cost pubs £450 million in lost business, not to mention the social cost.
“You wouldn’t steal a car, you wouldn’t steal a handbag, but far too many are happy to watch a friend get soaked for a £50 round then run off laughing into the night.
“Our operatives are wise to all their tricks: only offering when everyone’s glass is full, faking phone calls, the early-bird round for a few people. We’ve got your number, you little shits.”
Round-dodging twat Nathan Muir said: “Okay, but I’ll just have to make up the money I lose by never having the right change for the taxi or ‘promising to sort it out later’.
“And cadging fags. Loads and loads of fags.”
