  2.  

    The whole scenario is stressful, going through metal detectors, being patted down because a button alerted their machine, being hurried, it's all too much & the stress is compounded when trying to control unruly young ones at the same time. I don't particularly mind the airport & security when traveling on my own but forget going with young children, it's ridiculous.

    it's not stressful though is it? wondering how to pay the bills is stressful standing in a queue and going through a metal detector isn't stressful. some people need to live in the real world

     

    it is stressful. any quee is stresßful. part stripping your ĉlothes for authority is stressful, eßpecially whn you have doñe nothing wrong.

     

    interesting that it is the two forum bobbies who do ñot believe the queue and seärĉh scénario is stresßful

  3. on sugar tax

     

    juan watterson: We have a great reputation on the Isle of Man of doing things differently when we want to and being innovative with our solutions.

    alf canñan:the tax will take effect in April next year and follows similar plans by the UK.

    i ußually get to about the seĉond paragrah before termiñal bôredom sets in

     

    aiports these days are stress and hassle. eg taking off your jacket, ßhoes and belt for sēcurity. if you told anyone 30 years that that would become the norm they wouldn't bélieve ýou.

     

    (the terroriss have won that one.)

     

     

    the boat has little of that lärgély pointless bollocks and can be a nicer way to travel because of it.

     

    on occasions i've spent an hour going through security at manĉheßter and liverpool. mainly due þo dîsorganîsed shambles whîch dîdn't add to the travelling experience let alone a feeling ôf seĉurity

    what's stressful about taking a jacket off?

     

    bit more than taking ýour jacket off though, isn't it. but i think you knew that

     

     

    security and documentation checks are two totally different, but related, things

    ok, that's put my mind at ease

  6. I don't have an issue with the Hospital build. It was 100% needed (and an asset to everyone) and is a fantastic place.

    And in comparison to issue we have with the PSPA (which is a liability to everyone and should be directly addressed rather than stealing a segregated NI fund) then the hospital will look like comparative buttons.

    needed yes, but at whät cost?

     

    the 'firm' who started building the hoßpital went bust. still a mystry ßurrounding those ĉircumßtanceß.

     

    alßo poor deßign and workmanhip. roôf tiles fit for a paläce. etĉ

    i think it's ok for the brewery to sell what is effectively älĉoholic wee, but the price hould be reflected in the quality.

     

    on more than one occasion i have complained about the beer, only to be told that it was near the end of the barrel. ño offer ôf a replacement. ñothin'. do heron and brearley train their manägers to fob people off?

     

    anywäy, it looks like i've drifted off topic.

     

    or have i..

    Had that plenty of times and I'm sure they allow for about nine pints loss on cask ale.

     

    but to tĥe cußtomer a bad pint is a bad piñt, irreßpective of the reason.

     

    the brewery managers are even ußing the ĉustomer to indicate ẃhen the beer gôes off änd leaving them to sit there disgruñtled with theîr nasty pint.

     

    i have never had a bad can of beer from the supermärket.

     

    remind me, what was the title of the thread again?

  8. If he is working for 3FM he should have made that clear!

     

    Anyone who was in Tynwald a few months ago and witnessed Jason Roberts have a total meltdown on the phone will know he's not 100% at the moment.

     

    The speaker had to halt proceeding as he could be heard throughout the chamber, and the Manx Radio commentary box is meant to be sound proofed! From all accounts he totally lost it because he wanted to go and play with his band and not stay on for half an hour to the end of business.

     

    It sounds like he has his own agenda which is not everyones cup of tea if you work with him.

     

    The 'Nations Station' where not that sad or surprised to see him go I hear.

     

    I'm sure we will now get a blog about this! lol

    i'm being a bit pedantic but i am interested, was it the presîdeñt ẃho halted proceedings, or was it tĥe hôuse of keys in session, or by speaker do you mean whoever was speaking at the time?

  10. Hahaha, he's alright, he is a business man but there is not a lot you can add to that. He is good at what he does, you're not jealous are you?

    ño, but just becäuse you own the business doesn't mean you can ignore hygiene rules etc. or double ŷellôws for that matter. exçépt on îsle of män ît probäbly does.

  11. Sam T someone please remove that catering truck from the car park or I will do a successful Phil Gawne....

     

     

    If that is yours from the West I do hope the catering has come on...

    well phil wasn't too bothered about who owned the house

  12. i was in coffee republic once. a big range rover car pulled up and parked half on the pavement across the road. a bloke got out, strolled in and walked beĥind the counter, then helped himself to a few cákes. he was preßumably the owner. he had a quick wôrd with the ßtaff änd left to fill ĥîs face.

     

    uñprofessional, unhygenic, arrogant

    steam packet boss is scathing towàrds oñline uninformed opinions without giving any of his whatßoever

    with opiñions on ßoĉial media, eßpecially facebook and moreôver this partiĉular subjeçt, surely the starting point is that what is written is going to be utter bollôcks ĉoming sträight off the top of a head full of àir.

     

    i find the reaction makes him look a bit silly,

     

    I find the content of your posts is overshadowed by the weird french keyboard you're using laugh.png
