    I love Havana Clubs but this was a Ron Zacapa 23.

    He'd enjoy that if he likes Havana...as long as he doesn't scud cheap coke in it!

    Had a regular in a bookies I worked in who would steal the bog roll. Fairly tame on the scale of "mad hings you've seen in a bookies" but this fella owned a restaurant up the road and was nicking several off the massive refills fae us at a time.

    If you want to try a decent cuban rum apart from havana club try santiago de cuba anejo, great on its own or with coke.

    For those who are in love.....
    Tight pal of mine who earns good money as a spark spic but anytime we went for a pint he'd have to go to a cash point just as we were going in....basically so he didn't have to buy the first round..

    Wasn't just that though but he'd get enough say it was just 2 of us or 4....he'd get a tenner or score out but instead of just getting 60-oner out, he'd keep going cash point everytime time it was his round..

    He brought his brother Ibiza with him so was 5 of us out there and any round they were trying to swing it together instead of separate. Never seen anything like it in my life. "Ol it's your round".....nah my brother got last one" :rofl:. The 3 of us that were staying together got in a taxi to a club and because we left those 2 to pay for theirs, he * off and let his brother come to Space and he had no dough. Anyone that's been there will tell you how pricey it is at the best of time's..

    Worst one of the lot though is before we played Hibs about 10 year ago away. Early Saturday kick off. Knocked his window to go sports bar and watch it and grab a munch. He dillies and dallies and says get a munch here if you want before we go...cool whatever. Next thing he says just got to pop Tesco first and he gets some rolls and some steak for his wee brother to cook (he's a chef). Go back to the gaff and have this standard roll and before we leave he says yeah McGuire you wanna put a fiver in for the munch..

    Asked me did I want a munch before we went and ended up charging me for it. I didn't even want the thing I wanted to go to the pub and eat properly :56:

    Safe to say I don't really have it with him anymore..

    Hate these type of *. I find it bizarre the way they think they’re doing well saving loads of money or whatever but actually no * wants to know them or do any favours for them. You get back what you give with decent folk.

    Not quite the same thing but my neighbour was getting a bulk uplift from his house a few weeks ago and I had a daft wee ripped laundry thing to throw out. Was on my way out so asked the guys if they could shove it in their cage. They said no - probably wanted a bung, so I just took it to the dump while I was out.

    I just can’t understand that behaviour.

    Woman used to come into my work and told me she always popped into her local pub when passing to steal the bog rolls. She was laughing like * telling me while standing in her PJ’s in City centre. Said her kids were too embarrassed to go out with her because of the bog roll thefts. Think her kids were about 8 and 10. :giggle1:

    That's barking behaviour.

    I was the only single one at a pal's wedding a few years back and suggested we put in for a kitty.

    One of the birds pipes up: "Aye just put in £30 a couple then?"

    Me perplexed, "so what do I put in then?"

    Her: "Eh...£30 surely?"

    I just chuckled to myself man, not worth the hassle pointing out the cheek.

    I got the last laugh when they plonked 2 bottles of red and 2 bottles of white on the table, she started taking tallies of who drank what: '9 white, 2 red'...

    Her: "Should we see if we can get 1 of the reds changed to a white instead then?"

    Me: "Naw hen, you leave that there....I'll look after that" :67:

    Drank with a guy years ago his nickname was Gommy, poor bassa had been in for shock treatment years ago, we drank in the Clutha bar, usually went in about lunch time when they served meals.


    A lot of workers would come in for their lunch from the Sheriff court just across the bridge, anyways the guy would wait until they left and go over to the table and finish off any food that they'd left, also he would half inch the condiment satches. :56:

    Absolute rat's mate..

    I've always been a bit scatter cash when I've had it/got it and out. No for everyone I know but I just cannot understand how tight some * are..

    Your example highlights that also. I've always hated whips purely for the simple reason that some tight * always manages to * it a bit somehow down the line..
