I strongly suspect you fell asleep and and woke up fifty years ago.

Just been having a look on Faceache, the TT pages are full of people stressed out trying to book their TT for 2020! Some have been hours online, can't get through on the phone etc. This is all to get the sailings you want to fit in with work etc. I think we still have some way to go before we can offer easy access to our island? Having said that, there are probably a lot of people online today as they have just released next years sailings?

I doubt that - it’s all done just to create pointless fights with people from what I can see and nothing else. He’ll totally contradict himself at some stage in the next 24 hours trying to start a pointless fight with another poster over something else.

Pot calling kettle.

The image you posted was not the one Jo Pack posted, so you are no better than her if those images are racist. Think about that.

I have no wish to argue with the angry forum nutter for yet another night. If you read my post I said something like this is the same or very similar to what she posted. Now please try to stop starting fights on here for no reason at all just by belligerently arguing that black is white all the time. Thanks.

I will try to stop reacting to your baiting. Pick on someone else please.

I can remember the ritual of coming across for TT 30 years ago. The first thing we did the day after we arrived was join a queue at the Sea Terminal to book next year's boat. It couldn't be done on the phone, you had to go down and do it in person.

Yep, my visitors did the same. They said they couldn't relax and enjoy that year until the next year was safely booked and in the bag.

I know. But it still takes some psyching up to - a couple of visits to Shoprite, anyway :lol:

ETA. Made all the more difficult by the rumour that they bin 100s of unsold copies after the TT every year?
