Madness Yea...Can I get a blahblahblah...

So - I popped into the local chip shop on the way home last night to get the Loons and me some dinner (as Mrs F was abandoning her post and going out for curry - leaving us poor lads to fend for ourselves )

The lady infront of me orders her food thus....


Chip shop Lady "Yes Please?"

"Yea ... Can I get a blah..a blahblah and a blahblahblah"





For reasons I can't fully explain that gets right up my snout
Quite apart from the lack of a "please" and "thank you"...

"Can I get.." - No you can't fec...flippin' Get....

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum


F U N E X

:skull: This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. :skull:

Re: Yea...Can I get a blahblahblah...

Yes its true that manners seem to be sadly lacking in todays society, a simple please and thanks goes a long way and its not hard to say really.

Thank you

And it's "May I?" not "Can I?"


Unfortunately I find my self saying "I'll take a ...."
Which I think is due to my French speaking.

Re: Yea...Can I get a blahblahblah...

I only wish the Chippy lady had said to her what I say to the loons when they ask for stuff...

"And whats the magic word?"


Its not just tha lack of manners though...its the whole "Can I get.." bit ...whats wrong with "Could I have.." or "Can I have..."

I'd go with "I would like......*said fried food* Please"

and

"Thank you, Good bye"

Not "cheers, ta ra"
