HR Strange But True!
June 14, 2001

Authorities in the western Norway town of Stavanger decided that weekends were getting a little too rowdy in the local pub Skjenkestuen, so they ordered it to hire certified bouncers.

The pub responded by hiring one of its regular customers, 91-year-old Marta Aurenes.

Aurenes will become Norway's oldest bouncer, once she completes the required course. In the meantime, she will prepare for the job by exercising. She reckons, though, that her day-to-day routine won't change much.

"The pub has been there for 15 years but has never needed any bouncers because it is such a terribly quiet place," Aurenes told Reuters. "If a man gets a bit tipsy, he is usually followed out by a couple of men without any fuss."

To be on the safe side, Skjenkestuen has also hired two other regulars for bouncer duty - a retired sea captain and a psychologist.
