Very strange. Booked a Hailo this morning just before 9am. The taxi that responded was on the North Circular Road yet Hailo told me he would arrive in Sandymount [Dublin 4] in five minutes. Maybe I got an upgrade to a helicopter? I actually didn’t notice until the very nice taxi driver rang and said he would be 30-40 minutes. I cancelled.

    I had a similar experience recently. App said taxi was 3 minutes away.
    He called after 10 mins and said he’d be there shortly. Fine. But after 20 minutes I cancelled, then i received a text message saying, and i quote…
    ‘this is not good…i came all d way in traffic…and you cancelled…i rang before and u say its fine….not fair’

      10 mins late…get over yerself luv. What did you do after you cancelled, call another cab & wait another 10 mins in any case. f’nsnowflake.

      Tbf, if she sent in something about refugees or dying kittens she’d be slagged off as well.

      You’re a very caring person, Medium Sized C. It’s what I admire about you most, I think.

    I’d cancel any taxi driver that had a weird grey bar across his eyes too.
    How the heck is he supposed to drive to my destination safely??

    If you’re are going to block his face and reg then do it properly. If I knew this guy I’d recognise him and could verify the reg based on what I can see of it. Make your rectangles bigger.

    My bus was busy earlier, I had to stand.

    As soon as I got into the office and clocked in, I ran straight out to Insomnia for a flat white and a bacon/salami/egg thingy. Was grand.

    I went to the loo a while ago.

      1. Birneybau2

        The bacon/salami/egg thingy was browny orange, probably due to the salami juice.

        Flat white not the hottest.

          Insomnia coffee is terrible. Their flat whites are passable because you’re essentially dumping a load of milk on their bitter burnt bean coffee and taking the edge off.

            I’m with you. Insomnia makes rancid cups of wee not coffee.

            You can tell because they do it by pushing a button. That is not coffee.

            Don you take that back.

            Pret push a button and it’s probably the finest, most reliably good coffee you can get on the go.

            Do. Not. Get. Me. Started. On. Pret. Or. Costa. Or. Nero.

            They are all poo and if you buy coffee from any of them, you have poo taste in coffee and are rubbish.

            END OF.

            I thought you had taste ahjaysus, I thought you were alright. Now I find out you are one of those caffeine abominations…

            I bet you love their cardboard sandwiches too.

          5. ahjayzis

            I never knew you were a preparation snob, Don!

            I did have a crippling addiction to their caesar roll, though.

            But my point stands, Pret coffee is good for what ails you.

          6. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

            Once you have good coffee, from somewhere lets you send back a cup if it is burnt or too hot or not hot enough, then you can never have the so-called “coffee” these cowboys try and seel you again.

            I… I… can’t even look at you right now. I need time to get over this shocking betrayal…

            I also frequent Shoreditch Grind.

            All handmade. Decentish.

            And the worst customer service you’ll ever see.

            At least Pret people are usually genuinely chirpy.

            You’ve redeemed yourself slightly. Though hipsters make terrible barpeople and baristas. Too busy trying to look cool while not sweating to death in their ironic 80s polyester leisure suits a la King Corbs.

      I just watched a great German thing about how to sit on the crapper correctly complete with handy cross sections.. I now am deeply concerned for everyone doing it wrong

      1. ahjayzis

        That foot stool thing for raising your legs into a squat and achieving perfect sh1tting posture has made me so paranoid that I’ve been doing it incorrectly all my life.

          Squat toilets are the only way to really feel you’ve accomplished something at the start of the day. So… cleansing.
