Lads I bought a fu**in jambon and a cup of coffee this morning at a filling station in Longford and it cost €5.40.

Now, I’m no fu**in’ economist but I’m a great man for a filling station breakfast and lemme tell ya fu**in something, the arse is about to fall out of the economy….

No need for the language but anyone?

    now there’s a man with principles and foresight.
    i hope at least he shnuck an extra shot of espresso into the coffee?

    It’s on, most people are aware it’s on, but most people don’t really care. Not really. Not like Saipan.

    Fully agree with the sentiment. €14 for a take away salad in Dublin city centre…95% salad leaves and sauce.

      Tupperware is your friend- both to store and carry- stock up in Lidl/Aldi and take a lunch to work? If everyone done that- you’d be surprised how those prices would come down.

        I tried bringing my lunch to work for a while some years ago and found that a) I had eaten it by 11am and was hungry again by lunchtime or b) I was not in the mood for the contents of the lunchbox when lunchtime rolled round. Tupperware was my frenemy.

          I found that too, so started packing an eleven o clock as well and eating a light dinner

    Not to tell a family secret but the Centra on Capel Street practically give em away.

    I used to pick them up for the office and walked away with 10 on me once. My bag stank and I had to explain to the lads behind me that they weren’t all for me.

    Anyway, I’m rambling.

      That is because Capel Street has a high % of practicing Homosexuals- the rest are perfect at it- even the pizza is low carb ffs.

    If only there was some way of refusing to pay, like saying “No thanks, I’m fine” when you saw the price. If only…

      We are far away from what “jambon” means… its suppose to be meat from a leg of porc. I suppose the 5-6 tiny dice of Ham are that… or not. Probably not.

    Were you not supposed to get three of them jambons for 2 yo-yos (or something like that)

    In the Centra opposite Our Lady’s (Children’s Hospital) you get five sausage rolls for 2 yo-yos and coffees at 2.75 and 3.25

    I reckon you short-changed yerself there

      I don’t think those Deli counters are self-service, someone has to take the jambon and put it into a bag and put the price on it, so if there was any sort changing then it wasn’t on the customers side of the counter.

    My evening meal, 3 or 4 times a week for @ 15 years was from service stations in the UK. An over-cooked veggie pasty, over-priced, eaten whilst driving – that’s a crime now, apparently.

    1. some old queen

      No shayna, the judge stated it was the bottle of wine being consumed while driving not the pasty- remember?

    A hot buttered croissant with ham or bacon rashers [if one has the time] and Emmental cheese is cheaper and tastier – a crépe with lemon juice and maple syrup is also quick to make at home and can be eaten as a snack at any time throughout the day, especially with coffee.

        I think that stuff in the morning is fine as long as you are active, having five or having it after lunch maybe not so much,
        I’d murder a decent ham and cheese croissant right now

    Beat this, E3.95 for an Innocent smoothie in Avoca Malahide Castle. Three ninety effing five. Stuff one in each pocket of your unsuspecting 3 year old, ask for directions to the toilet clutching a 5 month chilt, a bag of nappies whilst chewing a sodden muslin cloth Whilst that you effers.

      Smoothies are like a special tax for people with too much money, who think that consuming the sugar of 5 pieces of fruit in one sitting is somehow healthy.

    Jambons is it? Far from jambons…Meanwhile over at the Journal they’re conducting a poll to see if “you prefer coffee or tea”. Christ!

    Broadsheet would want to get over it’s problem with swearing especially when Terry is allowed to use as many F-bombs as he likes in his rants.
