I only ever notice this when I'm abroad of the illogical places they decide to place a socket on a wall that makes no sense whatsoever. LOL

I would rationalize it in that the hotel may have been built before the advent of mobile phones so the only places you'd need to have a socket were behind the tv cupboard on the wall and maybe another near the door for cleaners to plug in their hoovers etc. 


At Euro 2016 in Paris there was a plug high up on the wall near the light switch for the bathroom.  Only plug in the room to charge the phone.  Had to charge the phone hanging by its cord.

In fairness, they certainly know how to do a successful paint job.

Stayed in a B&B in Kinsale last week - there were no electrical sockets in the room, the TV was at least 30 years old and didn't work. And then your wan tells me a hot breakfast is extra!

Reading today's papers and total lack of respect and decency shown at funeral of one of the men killed in motorway accident last week. Foul language used on the altar in front of the priest. Have these people any values whatsoever? What a stupid question!!!

He accomplished what he set out to do. Well, they all did. I noticed several who had the same idea.

The only time I've found something like this charming is when there was a lone Celtic fan celebrating wildly in a sea of foreign fans (can't remember what team) who scored against Rangers in a Champions League game.

I've only ever seen it when they've a quiet night and they try to create an atmosphere by bunching people up to make it feel cosier. Doesn't suit everyone.

So you go to a restaurant and sit beside an Everton fan with tattoos and once he hears your accents he wants to beat the sh*t out of you?
And nothing is side between the two parties before this?
The Everton fan could have done us all a favour LOL

When you go to a restaurant with your other half and the waiter gives you a table right beside other people so you can't have any privacy, even though there are loads of empty tables.

This happened in a Chinese restaurant in Liverpool once and a heavily drunk and belligerent middle-aged man wearing an Everton jersey and tattoos all over his arms was at the next table with his wife.

"Oh here we go" I thought to myself and surely enough 10 minutes later he's heckling my girlfriend and I once he hears our accents.

Another 10 minutes pass and he's standing over me threatening to beat the sh*t out of me even though I didn't do anything while the waiter sits on his tod. 

The most frustrating thing is that they were finished eating by the time we sat down so I thought maybe I've dodged a bullet, but no!

After he finally left, a man who knew him got up from an adjoining table to apologise to us.

My second most traumatic dining experience after SHU* in Belfast.

*Nothing to do with the food or service

***ts on amazon that "answer" a question about a product with "I don't know" or "Not sure, I bought it as a gift". Just don't answer the question then.
I was looking for a printer a while back and was trying to see if it had some features, saw that someone had asked the question and thought great, 4 answers. All 4 were I don't know.
Idiots.
