A honest mistake to be fair

I don't think I have ever had a glass of wine topped up in my absence.

3 hr 45 m train journeys on an old rattler from Cardiff to nottm with a raging hangover. Not buffet car or at seat service. Shocking

Unacceptable in a micra or fiesta I agree, but surely acceptable in a transit when you've only got about 2 inches each side.

Is a second bottle never corked or has suffered form poor storage then? :grrr:

Had this happen to me where a waiter had already topped up 3 glasses by the time I'd tasted it and it was corked. Had a long conversation about losing wine as a result of his failure to do the job properly. Wasn't a cheap restaurant either.

So many waiters and diners think that you are offered to taste the wine first to see if you like it. "Mmm that's very nice thanks".

Motivational posters being put around the workplace, such as "You miss 100% of shots you don't take" - Jesus

The only motivational quote I want is that Clinton Morrison one about not making excuses

Pretentious use of foreign/Latin phrases in italics when there are perfectly adequate English equivalents by pompous 'oooh, look at how ******* intellectual I am' arseholes.

It's not exactly hard to take the bottle off him and smash it over his bastard head.

"Iíd been ill and hadnít trained for a week and Iíd been out of the team for three weeks before that, so I wasnít sharp. I got cramp before half-time as well. But Iím not one to make excuses."
