    Sounds depressing as fcuk

    Well us old wans grew up with a plain ol cup of tea and a cake or a biscuit in the hospital cafe or plain sandwich and we didn't turn out too bad now, what makes you think the snowflakes of today couldn't survive without a Costa or Starbucks if they visited someone in hospital?

    What's the problem?

    If you're that bothered, go to the supermarket before the hospital.

    He would no t have so much fun as starting this thread though ;)

    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.

    Ah some sensitive soul went and nuked this entire thread from existence. How touchy!

    Why are you calling people snowflakes? Who said they wouldn’t survive? Times move on Andy. The only one on here complaining and lamenting for times gone by is yourself so remind me again who the snowflake is.
    No one is stopping you from setting up a fairy cake stall if that’s what your heart wants

    No a&e for self inflicted injuries but at least you’ll get a fairy cake on arrival before you’re turned away

    are you back at primary school next week Omackeral ? - you must be because you sound so childish, and what you are doing seems childish :D

    i dunno what fun you are getting out of going of topic and re-posting - please do explain to me what fun you are getting so i can try understand how your mind works?

    Oh sick burn girlfriend! Just asking if you're going to get all your past threads deleted. Simple enough enquiry.

    Like it or not Andy, in my mind anyway, you have become synonymous with a certain style of posting on Boards that transcends threads. Someone was going to point it out sooner or later.

    Id imagine based on your posting style that I'm probably older than you and you know what?


    When I was stuck in hospital, it was a bloody godsend having a coffee shop I could slowly hobble down to or have a family member bring me in a chair to, to get a coffee when I chose instead of when nurses came around, and to get out of the room for ten minutes.

    It's not just about visitors. Getting out of the poxy hospital room for twenty minutes is amazing when you're incapable of walking around for most of the day.

    Have you started any threads on your dreams yet? Could be an idea...

    i'm not disputing that fact - every hospital must have a public canteen/cafe.

    I am saying personally (and I dont expect everyone to share my views of course) - I just dont think a Hospital (especially a HSE one) should have a franchise of a Starbucks / Costa or whatever in it - just an independant run one maybe at reasonable prices and value for money food and drink.

    So was it the Starbucks one you hobbled to?

    Do you think they they should give out free refills if you spend over 5 Euro? For customer service relations like.
