    Post Common sense really has gone!!

    On the back of Iain863's post yesterday about common sense being gone and just to prove the point, I'd like to share a conversation I had with my goodlady about an upcoming night out...

    (The background... there are 8 of us heading from Worksop to Barnsley for a night out, a minibus is going to cost £120, but my mate decided to arrange an 8 seater limo for £150 that includes the champagne treatment)...

    the point... He was talking to one of my GF's friends and said that the cost of the original minibus was £120 so because he's bumped it up he'll still charge everyone that price but he wasn't sure off the top of his head what it was but he thought it was just over £12 but he'd confirm later. Turns out it's £15 per head as any one can tell £120/8 is not £12 but he was driving. He's told said person, and said person and my GF are now arguing the point that it's unfair to ask for £15 because he originally said £12 and that £15 is too much compared to the minibuse because the £3 is out of their drink money....

    Does any one else notice the fundamental problems here?????????????

    Errrrm.


    TAXI!!!!

    £3 would only just get you a drink in most places, consider the £3 for a glass of champers

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Did they end up coughing up the extra £3 at the end?
