Its about time someone stood up for Wax jackets by veepee (Member 10294016) on 20-Nov-2014
A practical attire for this climate and far more in keeping with the environment than the gaudy range of anoraks and chav suits.

offcomers by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 16-Nov-2014
To Staveley for a bite to eat at Wilf`s cafe. Too many toffee nosed plummy accents for my liking, it must be a place Lancashire people avoid. Back yam through Windermere (village) that has a plethora of supermarkets now. We are still waiting for a decision on the brewery supermarket. Pathetic.

  • Re: offcomers by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Nov-2014
    It just seems that everywhere I go in the county these days, including Ulverston, I rarely hear a local accent. It`s all the genteel types in their Debenham`s best pullies and cords talking plummily.
    You wait, the town is about to be engulfed in `em, make no mistake, come the dickhead festival you won`t be able to move for the buggers.

    p.s. engulfed in toffs that is, not cable knits and corduroy.

Pete Winston accused of ripping charity banner down by WayneRoss (Member 10250384) on 28-Oct-2014
Whats all this about Peter Winstan supposedly admitting ripping down a charity banner for a do at the sports club raising money for disabled kids?! Apparently he told the organisers it's against some sort of byelaw, but what's it got to do with him? He took it down to the tip. The banner cost the family organising it £50, they can't get it back now   
  • Re: Pete Winston accused of ripping charity banner down by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 28-Oct-2014
    If he did that I reckon he is guilty of theft/criminal damage, probably nowt to do with him but some people just can`t resist setting themselves up as some sort of town sentinel.

If there was real demand for what they were selling and they sold a lot then it would still be worth traders' while to come.

    It`s just Ralphie`s desperation to have Quirkiston perceived as a market town with lots of "good Folk" bustling along among the stalls. He just wants to maximise the appeal of the place, it all helps to sell houses, keeps the price high.

Shops which don't deserve your custom.. by veepee (Member 10294016) on 11-Oct-2014
Let me start the ball rolling with Fulwood Convenience Store, 214 Watling St Rd. Preston - a popular area for parking on match days. Park outside, go in, buy produce, come out, go into the Chinese next door, come back to your car and lo and behold A PARKING TICKET for £50. Nice way to treat customers. Use it at your peril!   
  • Re: Shops which don't deserve your custom.. by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 11-Oct-2014
    Erm, I`m not quite sure how the shop can be blamed for your ticket? Have they got a car park that you have to pay to use or summat?

  • Re: Shops which don't deserve your custom.. by veepee (Member 10294016) on 12-Oct-2014
    No, shop has 3 or 4 spaces outside for customer parking only which is fair enough to expect a ticket if you don't use the shop. The fact is this guy has lost himself more than the £50 it will cost me i.e over £1000 I spend in there a year. Business brain or what?

  • Re: Shops which don't deserve your custom.. by veepee (Member 10294016) on 12-Oct-2014
    They've got one if these private parking cowboys monitoring traffic. I didn't even find the ticket until by chance the following day. Instead of it being stuck to the screen or left behind a wiper it was jammed down the rear of the bonnet under the concealed part of the wiper mechanism. Bet they were banking on it falling off so I wouldn't even realise then hit me with double the fee after 14 days non-payment.

    Ah, right, I see now. The likleyhood is the shop will want nothing to do with this, they will claim the parking is administrated on their behalf by the cretin that gave you a ticket.

    Somewhere in the legislation governing this there are clear signage requirements, the days when they could put a miniscule notice thirty foot up the wall are long gone. Looking at the latest developments in the on street parking charges about to come into place in Barrow it`s going to become impossible to park anywhere for free.

  • Re: Shops which don't deserve your custom.. by Fray Bentos (Member 10255495) on 17-Oct-2014
    Firstly check what type of parking ticket it is. If it is council issued for parking on public property, then it should be obvious since it will have the council name on it, and it will be called a Penalty Change Notice, Excess Charge Notice, or if police issued, a Fixed Penalty Notice. You'll have to pay it because you broke the law and that is the fine. But if it’s a Parking Charge Notice (or ... more >>

    In the 17th century we used to say "fall" in England - a contraction of phrase "fall of the leaf". Emigrants to North America took it with them but we then gradually stopped using it and started using "autumn" exclusively. Basically, it went out of fashion here, but not there.

    Interesting you should say that. I have it on excellent eye witness authority that one such Sainsbury's delivery operative was indeed set upon and verbally abused by a gang of KUS fundamentalists whilst going about his lawful delivering stuff business in t'Gill. I hadn't thought it could be true but it might well have been. I don't suppose the daft fuckers lie in wait for Asda or Tesco delivery vans.

There it goes again! Shut and open, shut and open, shut and open

Will anyone who actually knows how to run a pub eventually own it, I wonder? (More likely it'll get knocked down)

To be fair, the tenants usually care and try their best, but it sounds like the company that owns it are complete numptys and won't suppo... more >>

    I reckon it's finished as a pub - make it into an Indian restaurant as has happened to a lot of pubs in other areas.

    I blame Tesco and Costa. KUS will know what to do. :P

Greggs by early doors (Member 10235862) on 15-Sep-2014
Greggs - the home of greasy pasties - have rejigged their 'store' and put in seats and tables . Where's KUS when you need them ? this will lead to closure of at least one of the special town's caffs won't it ? No wait a minute ,the average Greggs customer wouldn't eat at a table init ?

Special Ale by veepee (Member 10294016) on 14-Sep-2014
Does anyone know if I can still get a pint of special 'effin' ale in town? When last in the Brads many years ago a bloke asked me if I'd spilt his effin pint. I always thought that I might return to try one someday.

    Neither would be potent enough to defence one from that poisonous witch. She took my soul along with many other vulnerable fools. I fester here now in Menton awaiting the return of my cufflinks, penniless and without a proper hairstyle. Mezzo was right. Her baie complexion is witness to her indulgences. She feeds on men, masticates their souls like a piece of Grimsby, and spits them out into the g... more >>
