I saw two not unattractive women at the till purchase 120 dollars of groceries - meats, veg, everything. One of them takes out her mobile and starts tapping on a calculator. I thought she assumed she was charged in error but what she was doing was splitting the groceries in half with her flatmate. How do you guarantee you only eat half of a roast?
Who needs a calculator to divide $120 by 2?

But their meatballs are to die for Fwiffs! You'd probably like their gravadlax. It comes in tiny portions like you like. You should take a peek at their take-home items like caviar, pickled herring. Plus you can buy a Guntfart and a Gocktard on your way out. Maybe a Derpshart?
I can make my own meatballs. I'm not sure why I need to buy things that can live in a box for months. I have some Ikea furniture that I built at my parents' old place. If that's the craftsmanship that goes into their food I can do without it.

My cousin married someone who only drinks beer. Not any type of beer - the commercial kind like the Canadian equivalent of Miller Light. It's annoying because I'm stocking a digestif, a whisky, bubbly, red and white and then I have to run out and buy cans of beer. Why can't he learn to drink wine with his dinner?

Always keep some proletariat lager beer in for the masses. I have some BudLight in myself. In the UK it's still the norm for most of the lads to be drinking beer at Christmas. It certainly wouldn't annoy me if my guests were drinking lager instead of my 18 year old whisky.

It’s a bit cold for chilled beer but that does not deter most. With beer you know what you are getting and get what you know.

Rather annoyed so many people were in Wetherspoons on Christmas Eve. The once-a-year-drinking crowd.

I saw one once mix Coca Cola with Cognac. Xo. And this chap is not a lad anymore. He’s older than me.

I was at a bar on Christmas Eve with 4 Indian men who ordered a pitcher and kept calling the bartender dear. Dear could we get another round?

Hey I once went to an official banquet in Beijing. The things I saw being done to drinks nearly gave me a heart attack. And worse the fancy dressed waiters kept pouring red wine into like whisky glasses and at whisky two fingers levels. And they wouldn’t leave the bottles on the table. But they were happy to pour brandy as if it was wine. And add coke.

Cooks must wear a hat or hairnet to prevent hair from falling into food they prepare. What about the ridiculously long shaggy beards that men sport these days?

The Costco food guys have to double up on hairnets. Thankfully I've yet to find a hair in my hotdog.

I booked a service elevator on Saturday and as I go to prepare what I want to move in someone from inside the building closes the rear facing door and starts using it to go up to the 39th floor. I ask the concierge and she comes back down and says sorry she didn't notice it was in service - in spite of a label underneath the floor number saying "in service" and the fact you have to hold the button down to close the door.

After one round of furniture I am moving my sofa on a dolly and these appliance delivery chaps pull up. They probably said, "Alright! The service elevator is already set up" and literally close the door on me as I am moving my sofa into the corridor from outside.

Two hour booking and I waited a good half hour or forty minutes to stop using something I paid 75 dollars plus a 300 dollar deposit for.
