    Why didn't you just make ham and cheese sandwiches and bring them in with you?

    My mother was recently in the hospital for a number of weeks, we brought her home made sandwiches and/or a thermos full of soup.

    Tbh I was leaving at 1am and back in for 7am nearly every day. You should be able to get decent food at reasonable prices in a hospital.

    are they paying their correct Tax these days or are they still avoiding it with loop-holes?

    I think you should consider the option. For all our sakes. :)

    Rest assured there'll be a scintillating thread on it anyway...

    They should be delighted with that you scab.
    tried to blag a free cappuccino top up from Cannings (Spar) Sligo deli counter today .

    I already spent 5.70euro for a cappuccino and a chicken and chips snackbox ... drunk my cappuccino and it didnt quite hit the spot so went over to the coffee machine and pored meself out another regular cappuccino.

    Went to pay at the till and jokingly said with a smile 'would that be a free top-up' you know just chancing me arm like .. to which she then charged me for it .. I said gowan it is Christmas after all ... to which she says "Christmas is over" ...

    Hospitals have visitors everyday , theres 100,s of people working in the hospital ,they need to take a break, i think nurse,s and doctors can afford
    2-3 euros, for a cup of coffee .
    i think young people now expect to have acess to a coffee shop everywhere they go.
    I see no problem with a starbucks opening in a hospital,
    as long as there,s other retail outlets there too.
    You can bring in your own food if you are visiting every day and are on a budget .

    Honestly, it gets worse. Here's the thread. Starts off saying it's only banter but ends up fully believing a regular customer should be entitled to a freebie after spending his hard earned dosh. Whole thread is a car crash.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,503 ✭✭✭✭Mad_maxx


    Do you think they have enough people in comas that they're actually selling them now? ;)

    Costa on the ground floor, Starbucks a few floors up


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


    I mean, look at this.
    What happened next
    paid it and wished the grinch happy new year ...
    feck me a big conglomerate like spar couldn't afford to suffer me a free cup of regular cappuccino .. even though i had already spent a fiver with em ....

    Starbucks will be horrified.


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


    ... yet when muggin's here comes along and already has spent 5.70 of his hard earned money and chose specifically to give business to this particular establishment (there were other petrol stations in the area) well bloody hell, this hasnt done much for consumer relations much ....

    Again, poor Starbucks... they'll be gutted at missing out on a gem like you.

    I was embarrassed just reading the first page.

    Andy, you need to cultivate some healthy shame!

    Have you ever thought of taking your own advice?

    It would make the world a better place

    can you bring your own food in and eat it in the hospital ?

    Glad you agree with me - I dont know why people go searching for old threads and hijacking this one with another thread ...

    Some people have nothing better to do. They should get a job. Or even a part time job. Even volunteer part time in a charity. It would be good for them and get them out of the confines of the house for a while. Breath fresh air instead of 24/7 on internet looking up posts that even the original posters have forgotten about.

    Ah Jaysus, Andy, you are an awful moan.

    Only if you have a limp and your great grandparents beside you to sign your paperwork .
