    why do Starbucks have Grammar Nazis working for them now? :D

    Not a grammar Nazi.
    If they were, they would have have mentioned that the first letter of the starting word of a sentence should be capitalised.

    if a volunteer ran one can start up and run i am almost pretty sure an independent commercially run one could function - nothing fancy , no fancy food just the basic sandwiches, cookies and twix bars etc and cups of tea rather than buckets of tea and coffee

    This is effectively what the volunteers do. But as they are volunteers, they dont operate 24/7. You are not held to ransom to buy at Starbucks.
    Bit like the Spar within the hospital. Its a convenience you pay a premium for.

    And if you walk a few minutes you have The Square and all the cafes and restaurants around it.

    Spot on Del. 5mins and you have more than enough options to choose from.

    There's a Supermacs in UHG.

    these type of places in hospitals make a complete mockery of healthy eating .. especially if its on hospital grounds. - so many admissions caused by unhealthy eating and they decide to let a firms like this to trade on their property

    Sounds like you have all the knowledge and expertise, maybe you're the man for the job?

    well I would use common sense rather than knowledge and expertise - but then again common sense is lost on people these days ...

    Yes and you might get the option of having tea/coffee handed to you. Again, nobody is obliged to buy Starbucks. Its an option. If somebody is with you for the visit they can walk to the Square. Unless of course youre a prisoner tied to a prison escort. Then tough.

    dont think anyone has answered this yet - but are there any vending machines up at Tallaght Hospital for sandwiches/biscuits/bars of sweets like twix etc along with budget price tea and coffee? - or is it just cafes in there?


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Is there really a Starbucks or starbucks like coffee shop in Tallaght Hospital???

    do me a favour!

    How about you do us a favour and create a semi interesting thread for once. They're all absolutely dire. This isn't even the first one about coffee ffs. Awful awful awful.

    Pretty sure there's one in CUH as well.

    There's a Coffee Dock near outpatients where you can purchase a terrible coffee for around €3.

    But if you pop into A&E nearby, you can get an equally terrible coffee from the vending machine for just €1.

    is the advent of the internet these days stopped people being helpful?

    If you want to eat properly go down to the canteen
    It closes at 3pm

    not pointless - i was just reading something on facebook today where someone was charged 15eur for a stale sandwich and coffee that prompted me to ask about it ...

    Yours are especially sh*te and mundane though. People need to know. Some examples;

    "Being woken up by the birds"

    "People wearing glasses that don't suit them"

    "Should people who have colds wear masks?"

    No .. Id say in some ways its made people lazier by allowing the creation of threads with random questions where they could have easily searched and found the answer a lot quicker.

    Some people are stuck in hospitals for weeks on end. It's nice to go into a 'normal' coffee shop.

    I really dont get the outrage.

    and you speak on behalf of the whole of the people on boards do ye? - there might, just might be some people who might be interested and join in on the conversation - yep , it sounds like your not .. then fine - but why not stop playing God!

    Like arseholes on Facebook. "Any1 no wat time Dunnes closes?" Do these ****nuggets not realise they're actually online and can just google it? Or do they need attention. Is that it perhaps?

    can them kind of people walk outside of the hospital to the square?

    Sure read his other riveting coffee thread I linked above, he thinks he should get his for free!

    I think he was making the point that Starbuck's (or whatever chain) gives them the option of a coffee shop experience within the hospital :confused:
    Or are you now arguing against your own OP?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,949 ✭✭✭✭GBX

    Perhaps some can. Or as I already said, they could ask somebody visiting to nip to the canteen/Square/Any other coffee shop and get them food and drink. Not rocket science is it ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,128 ✭✭✭✭iamwhoiam


    What is wrong with some people ? No one is dragging anyone in and shoving a coffee down their throat . If you don't like it walk past it and bring your own lunch
    What others do or eat is no one else's business anyway .

    It's a good point OP.

    People may be staying long hours or days visiting loved ones in hospital, often leaving in a hurry so that bringing prepared food and drinks is not an opinion. Having the extra financial stress is just not welcome at times like this.

    I would hope that hospitals provide some self catering facilities for such people.
