I get why you'd call something "chicken flavoured" or why you'd have vegan sausage rolls or burgers but calling it vegan chicken struck me as a bit odd they should come up with their own names imgho. 

"The Vegan Chicken Impersonators" ??

I can't believe it's not fowl?

I saw something in the shop the other day that was vegan chicken. Why even call it chicken, surely you're just perpetuating the concept of eating animals as acceptable?

Meat folk do this too.

Chicken fillet on a roll isn't a burger it's a chicken fillet on a roll.

The shite minced up arse and beaks in a mcchicken sandwich are a burgers that gets a pass.

Had cause to stay in a Premier Inn last night. (Still here). 

A dispenser with wee toilet paper squares in the bathroom.  WTAF? I bet Lenny Henry doesn’t use them. 

On the bizarre toilet paper theme, I was in Cineworld earlier, and each sheet was about three times the length of a normal bit, but significantly thinner. On folding it twice, it almost resembled a normal bit.

I have no idea why anyone would design it that way

Be thankful you're not a child of the 60s where lavvy paper in primary school was the "use both sides" IZAL variety.  Sandpaper to wan's erse.

Even the teddy is unimpressed with mother's choice  😮

Is that the stuff that was like greaseproof paper? They were still using that at the first primary school I went to.

Didn't take long to work out that you hold your shites in until you get home but, in hindsight, you have to feel for the girls.

Restaurants that have a booking system where you choose your time slot. If no slots available you fill out the request section with your preferred time, send it, get an immediate reply saying thank you, a member of staff will reply shortly. And of course they don't. 

Aye, that's you The Seaforth in Ullapool. Twats.

I tried to book a hotel room in Ullapool a couple of weeks ago and there wasn't a single room available at any price, place has gone mad. Re restaurant booking, I always phone up, usually because there's a wheelchair with us but I don't trust these online systems anyway.

That's room only, another £11 for breakfast.

It really has. I noticed the Ferry Boat Inn has an A4 sheet of staff vacancies in their window, so I guess that might be the same for other places in town. Ah well, nothing like having a fish supper in a cold and wet Ullapool Saturday night.

I've been trying to book an Airbnb for the overflow of a big family gathering in September, mental prices, hardly anything under £250 per night. Still, cheaper than hotel rooms.
