Out? In? who cares? - its what you like and feels right for you that counts! ne'er be swayed by passing fads - be true to yourself and the rest will fall into place I reckon

Indeed, it would be a sad thing to bow to the fashionistas of the food serving world.

Chopping boards are out, slate slabs are in!

Mebbe, but in my limited experience, slates were a few years ago and now it's planks - we seem to be regressing. Next year, troughs!

Was walking by Currys PC World today and thought I would pop in to have a look at what TVs were on sale. There was one TV I might have been interested in and wanted to ask some questions, but the salesman was already dealing with a customer. I heard the customer ask how much he could save on the £179.99 price with the advertised 10% discount. The salesman said he was not good at maths, but he knew a trick to work it out. He said you cover the digit before the decimal point and the two after it, then went on to demonstrate it to the impressed customer. Only £1 out, so far.

The customer then asked how much he could save if the TV was reducedby 20% in the sale. I eargerly awaited the response of "£34", but alas. After a pause, the answer was "£48" and the customer was suitably impressed. I gave up immediately and left to quietly sob in the car park.

Staggering stupidity on both sides with a lack of basic maths. :unsure:

We were sitting further down the bar when that noisy lot left - didn't hear the exchange but were very glad when they finally departed! Good for you for supporting the bar staff - best bar staff in S London and they don't deserve such disgusting behaviour.

I completely agree that they're the best bar staff. While I can understand that finding a large space where you can bring your brood is hard to find, parents should understand that when bringing a large brood of kids to a pub on Christmas Eve it may be difficult to keep them under control, and other patrons may not appreciate having the precious little darlings running around like maniacs.

I get this sort of e-mail or the time, but recently they have taken a turn for the weird/slightly poetic:

Apparently:

For men, chewing a stalk of celery releases androstenone and androstenol odour molecules - making them more attractive to women.
