Might have mentioned this one before, but the bloke who appoints himself owner of the TAB. Walks around turning up volumes, changing channels, shushing everyone in the place so he can hear the 3rd from Casino dogs when there is a gallops G1 going, and not above yelling at the top of his lungs about a good/bad/indifferent result. Can get very snaky when losing but expects the whole place to be happy for him when he shoves winning tickets in your face.

If there isn’t one of these blokes in a tab then it isn’t a real tab

"Polaroid" - the bloke who always thinks he's more accurate than the photo finish ans when the result doesn't go his way, he launches into conspiracy theories about corrupt atewards, bad angles and cheating jockeys.
Spends summer at the MCG disputing LBW decisions from square leg.

not a real pub tab if an ex-employee hasn’t been fired/charged with stealing from it to fuel his own gambling habit.

usually a good bloke too.
This is usually happening from a punters clubs or tipping comp run at the pub.
Have actually seen it happen a month ago.

There is a guy who comes into the pub tab every Wednesday, comes and grabs a chair from a table (without asking if anyone is using it), places it in front of one of only two machines in the place and sits there for over well over an hour. no idea what he is doing but such a rude f...er

Walk past and start hitting buttons.
Get him to take a swing at you, he gets banned from the pub and everyones a winner.
