Jon's in a bad mood and decided to share it around

BAR FIGHT, BAR FIGHT!!

The bar man hurries to hide all bottles and other easily breakable items below the counter, and the piano man begins playing something more lively to set the mood...

Yeah, the larger the crowd, the higher the odds of finding someone in it that's an angry drunk or just an arsehole with a chip on their shoulder. It's one of the many reasons why I've always preferred being on the stage over being in the crowd.

Jon is walking around all pissy, huffy, and snarky, as a physically unthreatening boy, in the sort of crowded situation where good manners measurably reduces conflict. That's pretty much purpose built to draw out bullies and rage cases. It's not entirely right or fair, but Jon doesn't have to lean into it so much either, does he?

Yeah Jon forgot the most important rule when you're in a crowd of drunk people: don't be a dick

To be fair, there are other boys who have better odds of it. If a bloke looks threatening enough, (as in big, fit, mean, well-protected or crazy,) then the trouble-seekers usually try to move on to an easier target. Jon does not look threatening enough for that. I'm pretty sure Jon knows it too, since a self-endangered, wishy-washy noodle.like his older brother can routinely get the better of him.

Yeah this guy probably would have left him alone for that reason but Jon has a talent for getting in the way of his own wellbeing

He wasn't looking for a fight, but Jon talked his way into getting possibly lethal brain damage. That does seem to broadly fit with Jon's talents and tendencies to be a careless arsehole.

And the man in the back said everyone attack and then it turned into a ballroom blitz!

At least this fight can have some good music!

While some are mean drunks, Jon is a mean sober. Conversely he's a kisser drunk. Bring him the booze NOW!

I think Jon would find a way to be a jerk when drunk too. Can't win! Or perhaps won't win

I'm kinda with Jon on this one. I mean yeah mouthing off will get him punched more, but this isn't even like the thing with the guy who got his drink spilled onto Paul, this guy just bumped into someone and could've been like "oh, my bad, sorry!" Especially after Jon called him out. But noooo. Apparently someone pointing g out that you're being a huge dick is itself a punch-worthy offense. Hope this is this guy's favorite bar and he gets banned from it forever.

I guess in my mind it's a case of severe escalation. Jon didn't have to jump straight to "arsehole" and the guy could have taken the high road but NOPE, these two are fire and petrol

Aaah the British grammar
No
I can't
Who even came up with /were stood/? We got the progressive tenses from Irish, Irish uses the verbal noun with a to be verb like sensible people.
Why would you doubly use the past tense for past progressive?
Why?

I love the various British dialectical quirks, like "you were stood" and "give it us" and "shout me" and "by me sen"

The US has some great stuff too, I obviously love "y'all" but "youse" is also great

"Are you the big kahuna?"
"You wot mate?"
"Lemme try that again. Are you in charge?"
"Oh. Officially, no. Unofficially, what do you need?"

Don't forget, "color," without any letter U in it. I like that one mostly for making fun of it though. One of my favourite ways is by pronouncing it similarly to, "colon."

Pronounced like colon with an r is… not actually incorrect. Depends on the dialect. But. Yeah.
