Anyone else been tempted to but the re-issued adidas trimm-trab? I know I have. In fact, I think I'll get a pair on Thursday. Though I still wannt a pair of SL72s. So it depends which pair I come across first. So to speak.
In other news.
I was bored at work yesterday and told one of our regulars that from today we'd have to start charging her for the ice she has in her white wine. Under new company policy, she's entitled to four cubes of ice, and after that it's 30p per scoop.
Naturally she didn't believe me, so she asked my duty manager. He picked up the baton and ran with it. "That's right." He said. "It's like lemonade and pepsi. You can have so much as a dash, but after that you have to pay more."
Today Phil got an e-mail from the gaffer at Morecambe's Wetherspoon (The Eric Bartholomew, natch.) who used to work with us. He thanked us for the extra custom and pointed out that his pub weren't charging for ice.
Hilarious! She'd taken her husband all the way to Morecambe to drink to save herself having to pay for ice that we don't even charge for.
I'll probably get bollocked for this.

Inching towards a century thread here, are we?
I actually hope not. I find the suggestion that I might be the ref's spread bet slightly sinister.
And I do hope that the admin who locks up this section of the forum will do the right thing, and put the "The End" thread on top.
