FrancoFile: Stupid TFA isn't even clear whether the wine had bits of cork floating in it (man up nancy) or was corked - ie contaminated with trichloroanisole (any reputable place will replace/refund).
scottydoesntknow: They should cork his fork while they're at it./Not mother?
jaylectricity: Remember when all the snob-noses looked down on you for buying wine with a screw-top?
Quantum Apostrophe: Wine is for ponces anyhow. Real mean drink scotch.
FlashHarry: FrancoFile: Stupid TFA isn't even clear whether the wine had bits of cork floating in it (man up nancy) or was corked - ie contaminated with trichloroanisole (any reputable place will replace/refund).actually, upon further reading, they did:Insp Phil Spurgeon said "He said he was having a dispute with staff because they would not give him a refund because his wine had bits of cork in it.translation: the customer was being a douche.
kwame: Quantum Apostrophe: Wine is for ponces anyhow. Real mean drink scotch.A real man drinks what he wants and doesn't associate his masculinity with what other people think of him.
WGJ: FTFA: One woman rang to complain about maggots in her binIs that what they call it over there?
Alonjar: What a horribly mismanaged situation."We'll get you a replacement right away sir"*goes in the back and runs wine through a coffee filter*
uncleacid: Real wine comes in a box.
SirEattonHogg: Kwame:Quantum Apostrophe: Wine is for ponces anyhow. Real mean drink scotch.A real man drinks what he wants and doesn't associate his masculinity with what other people think of him.Well yes, except it's sort of hard to look manly drinking cosmopolitans.
pute kisses like a man: jaylectricity: Remember when all the snob-noses looked down on you for buying wine with a screw-top?once i had a screw cap wine go bad. it was a bit of a mystery. i bought the bottle, poured a glass, and thought, this is undrinkable. i went to the bartender and said, this wine smells and tastes like something went wrong... i would say corked, but it was a screw cap... he said, it can't be corked. i said, yeah, that's what i said.he gave me a look like i was being an asshole. so, i said, look, pour yourself a glass, and taste it. tell me if you think it's drinkable or supposed to taste like this. if you can honestly say that the wine is supposed to taste like this, i'll just say sorry, looks like i ordered poorly.he poured a little into a glass, smelt it, and had a look of revulsion, and said, i wouldn't drink that. he tossed the wine and the bottle like it was poison.got another bottle of the same stuff, it was good. so, something can go wrong with screw caps too./ after realizing i tasted that crap, the bartender no longer thought i was an asshole, or he did, but was at least apologetic. not his fault, he got a good tip for remedying the process, and my perpetual guilt to overtip people whenever there's trouble.
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: Quick, what's the non-emergency line to the local police where you live?Don't know it, do you?I've said it before and I'll say it again - we (global) need a non-emergency line with a short number (822 for the states, 888 elsewhere maybe) that goes to your local constabulary. It seems like half these 911/999 calls are made because people only know that number for the police.
megarian: Quantum Apostrophe: Wine is for ponces anyhow. Real mean drink scotch.I'll drink both. For you.I'm basically a philanthropist.
99.998er: I am certain that if it weren't for British tabloids, Drew would be operating a forklift in a Walmart warehouse somewhere.
