When did pubs start opening all afternoon? I definitely remember being  
thrown out of pubs at 2:30 or 3:00 and being forced to go back to work.

But I also remember a company where my team leader would occasionally  
insist that we all stayed in the pub all afternoon - well, until we  
all got written warnings for it.
