Went back to a woman's house last night, pumped her, and as I was leaving I discovered that we actually shagged in her spare bedroom. I've never been so offended, am I not good enough to get into her actual bed?!

 

I suppose you just had to tell somebody.

Absolutely. 

I love it.

Do they still have that pasta counter bit where you just help yourself?

Falkirk does.

As a bonus it's built on Brockville

Starship - We built this Morrisons on Brockeville Park was turned down by numerous record companies before they tried their luck again and landed a massive hit with city on Rock and roll. 

A massive loss to the Falkirk community which as can be seen is still badly effected to this day.

Tesco have stopped selling their own brand potato and leek soup. 
I purchased the Asda version today. Will keep everyone updated
Potato and leek soup is easy to make; even I struggle to make an arse of it. Have a stab at it.

I worked in a jeweller's and one time we had a ring in the window selling for £3000. However there was a fleck of dirt on the label which, if you squinted, made it look as if it was £30.00. (We never used the ".00" on any of our labels.) I spent the best part of an hour arguing with a gammon who insisted we HAD to sell it to him at that price. The good news is, he's probably dead now.

Yep, had that too, including a recent thundercunt who swapped the labels over on a few things and had a stroppy tantrum about the law and how she HAD to be sold these items at that price because reasons. She'd clearly got away with it in other shops; her husband had the look of a man who'd been mortified in that way before.

Still amazes me how many seemingly well-to-do folk will swap a £2 price sticker out for a 50p one in a shop trying to make money for a good cause.

Maybe that's how she avoids getting treated as a 1 night stand.

You have to earn the right to pump her in her proper bed. That's where she keeps all the good toys and restraints

Starting that with "Maybe" is fooling nobody.

I commented at the weekend that the TV gantry position at Fulham is too low.
 
To be fair when the stand that the gantry is in has been knocked down they are hardly going to have much choice in the matter.

That's how they're well-to-do...

From my (admittedly long ago) time in retail, the rule was to prevent misleading advertising. If you claimed you were selling something for £99 but when the punters arrived simply told them "Yeah sorry, it's £299, you'd be on the hook for fraud. However, if it was a genuine mistake - an error by the typesetter at the paper for example, you got a pass.

That said, the "You have to sell it to me at that price" concept was firmly ingrained in the British psyche. There was an even an episode of Coronation St. where Alf Roberts the grocer was forced to sell something at a bargain price because it was mistakenly labeled. The thing is, no, the retailler is under no obligation to sell anything at any price. They can simply refuse to sell you something because they don't like your face. Wouldn't be very good business but unless you're a member of a protected minority there's no legal reason why they couldn't.

I worked in a jeweller's and one time we had a ring in the window selling for £3000. However there was a fleck of dirt on the label which, if you squinted, made it look as if it was £30.00. (We never used the ".00" on any of our labels.) I spent the best part of an hour arguing with a gammon who insisted we HAD to sell it to him at that price. The good news is, he's probably dead now.

Just to pick you up on the "protected minority" point. 

Minorities aren't more protected than anyone else by equality law. If an Asian shopkeeper refused to serve me for being white he'd be in the same bother as a white shopkeeper refusing to serve an Asian customer for being Asian. 

I once persuaded an Asian shopkeeper that he had to sell me a bag of coffee for the label price of 99p when it should have been 1.99. He did not refuse to serve me, so I didn't report him.

When I first read this I was thinking, "But isn't that what I said?" Then I looked back at my own post and no, it wasn't. However, it was what I meant😉

Job adverts that don't mention salary. If I don't know how much money is on offer then why would I waste time applying? Likely not an uncommon moan here.

Over the last few weeks I've been looking for jobs in New Zealand as I'm thinking about emigrating. There's not a single job advert that lists the salary. Annoyingly though, all of the adverts do have a salary range, it's just not listed for the person looking. This results in fucking around with the salary bracket, searching again and waiting for your job to disappear from the listing to figure out what the f**k you might be paid. I cannot fathom why companies think this is a better use of their time, surely they don't want folk going through interview processes only for them to reveal the salary and the would be  employee telling them to ram their job? Do they hope that if some weak minded c***s get to that stage that they will just accept any old wage? Madness.

The missus is a kiwi and she was surprised how little wiggle room there is for negotiating a salary over here. Genuinely surprised that jobs advertised at £30k means that's the wage you'll get. I think the kiwis set a job out and expect you to negotiate a bit. Lunatics.
