Inconsistencies

13 posts in this topic

I am still in some shock at this one :D

A nice man I have seen many times over 4 years

recently cancelled his appointment just a few minutes

before he was due. He was genuine and contrite and I had no doubts

about this.

He saw me yesterday and absolutely insisted on

giving me half the missed fee as well as the normal one.

Yet last Xmas he brought me a little gift ( one of those

mini wine bottles and some out of date chocs ) and then

asked for the gift bag back as "my wife may notice it is missing"

HA! So bad it was good!

********

Another man brought me a beautiful pair of quite expensive nix to wear for him

and the price ticket was still attached so I think they were bought

specially.... hmmmm

Next time he booked I had forgotten to buy red wine which is his favourite

so he said ok he would bring it.

He did. Screw cap of course.... we had a glass each and then he closed the bottle

and put it back in his briefcase to take back home.

*******

Priceless! But I forgive them as they are nice reliable and good clients.

The client that made me smile was the one who bought my fee in £1 coins in a Tesco bag!

I used to see a baker who lived above his shop. He would pay me with money from the till in a bank bag and it always smelled of bread. One day he gave me a tip - yes you guessed it - a loaf :)

Is this a euphemism for shop lifting?

I think I picked it up (many moons ago) from the movie "The craft" if I recall correctly

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Craft_(film)

But yeah it is basically slang for pinching something

It's also a term used in The Shining by Stephen King and I managed to quote it in my degree dissertation!

Thank goodness for good old cockney rhyming slang!

Could be worse he could have tried to give you a "bun in the oven" :o

Or even worse if he'd been a Mortician

Perhaps he'd give you a "cold stiff one"? :lol:
