The Window Seat Of Shame




JC Cordovez-Mantilla writes:

I’ve just had a very comfortable and pleasant trip from Dublin to Cork. I was impressed by the cleanliness and excellent service from Irish Rail.

My name displayed over my seat, a mobile trolley offering snacks and beverages and clean toilets are some of the small details that make a significant difference and leave me with an impression of a company that’s making an effort. All for €19! Bargain.

To complete my trip I am now on a bus [Éireann] from Cork to Skibereen that cost €20.80.

But I’ve had to drape my coat over the headrest because the level of filth is unacceptable. Fail. This (above right) is the seat next to mine…

    That’s what you get for being poor. Surely a gold plated limousine with champagne and caviar is how one should travel. No?

        I didn’t want to say but it does look a lot like a poo which begs the question, why is JC sitting next to poo?

          Maybe he has a poo fetish.. I’ve heard there’s such a thing..

          Irish rail is poo heaven for these types apparently.

          Sorry JC.. just messin’.

        That’s not a poo. A poo would be further back in the seat. That looks like a period stain. It’s definitely not wee because that wouldn’t really stain. And if it’s not poo or blood, then it could be something like black coffee or some other dark liquid.

    Should make a National Geographic documentary about that, they can call it “When Sharts Attack”

      Didn’t he like ladies to defecate on his chest…? Or am I getting my crazy rumours/conspiracy theories mixed up?

        Oh but that’s okay….
        ironing your tea towels on the other hand and you’re a monster!

            Just between you and me Bertie, Fleur de Coton by Durance, though their Fleur d’Oranger is lovely too.

            Just my pinny.
            What do you mean you just got a bit of sick up your throat?

          1. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

            Bertie, I think you need help – WITH ALL THAT IRONING!

            But it won’t be me.
