      And don’t put anything in your mouth that came from Talbot st. I can taste the salmonella from here.

        I’d just be grateful that there’s less of what you hoped would be in it.

        It’s for your own good.

    Wild suggestion here.

    Make it yourself? Those things are a spectacular waste of money.

    Shocking but why not go to Lidl or Aldi and buy 6 rolls, 1 Pepper, 1 packet of Cooked Chicken Pieces, 1 block of cheese and a bit of butter/mayo. Cost you around a fiver for the lot and it’d last you the week.

    Damn I’m turning into me mother.

    I actually tried to buy a filled roll in Spar Talbot street a few months back coincidentally, while waiting for a train. The ‘soft roll’ was stale, rock hard. The nice girl behind the counter remade it with sliced bread and then attempted to wrap it, resorting to use cellotape and handed me a package you might see confiscated in the Joy visitor wing. I left, with it still in her happy, smiley hands.

    Got charged 20c extra for my usual lunchtime sandwich , when I queried this , I was told it was the dastardly government that I needed to be asking those questions , related to VAT increase. I did suggest that it wasnt an VAT increase, it was a VAT restoration , and I didnt see any price drop when the VAT was halved ….

    In a way, Im happy, final straw for me , need to get organised and make my own lunch at home …

      the supervalu in dun laoghaire does a savage soup and 2 slices of brown bread n butter for under 3 quid. every now and then they do a beef stew, which is like having your dinner at lunchtime.

    If you stood there, asked for the items, watched them being put on it and then paid for it, you obviously thought it was worth it.

    don’t–shop–there–again. simple! I remember I got a roll made up by a “sandwich technician” this was back over ten years before they were called sandwich technicians, in, I think , a spar on O Connell street right before a 4 hour journey on the Mcgeehans bus to hellish Donegal. I got even less filling than was on this picture, when I tried to hand it back to ask for more filling he looked at me like I had just insulted the prophet and got all outraged and refused, I looked at the price on the sticker, 4 euro abouts, I cursed and chucked it at him and stormed out with a hangry head on me and onto the bus, tummy rumbling, but the look the look on his face was priceless. I got a Mickey Ds in the Cavan half way stop off a few hours later anyway. good old Mc D’s , at least you know what volume of warm poisonous crap your getting!

    It’s a Spar on Talbot street – Just thank your lucky stars there’s no needles in it.
