Re: What ride's freak you out?

A bit of an odd one but the Britain in the Blitz walkthrough at Flambards terrified me when I was a kid. I felt as though there was no guarantee of repeat never happening. Went a few times and always spent the night wide awake scared.

Re: Sickness policy at work

That is 11 Margarita days to my counting.

Back to the OP. Six sick days does seem quite a few to me. I'm not questioning your honesty but if they were all separate and unrelated and I were your boss I would be slightly dubious.

Although it does sound like heavy-handed tactics.

Re: English Football 2011/2012

^ It was such an awkward trophy lift. Seeing bit part players like Ferreira fight over the trophy ahead of Lampard was cringey.

Felt really bad for Schweinsteiger, such a brilliant player and was awesome yesterday until the penalty.

Re: London Underground Disccusion

I'm a northerner who uses the tube a couple of times a year and find it easy and relatively stress-free but I find the over-reliance of it means I have no clue about London outside of the Tube. I don't know where where boroughs are in relation to each other. It's like a jigsaw where I have started t...

Re: Free stuff at the gates.

Just the MiniMax, two boxes did my cereal needs for the next week.

Other than that, the only thing I've got upon exiting a theme park was small tubs of Ice Cream when I was a nipper at Flambards.

As I fall deeper and deeper into my prediction coming true. I predict Wigan and QPR will stay up and Bolton and Blackburn to go down along with Wolves. I just can't see Coyle motivating us to heat the likes of Swansea and Sunderland, Villa will want to beat us to secure safety and I can't see us be...

Re: Most disappointing day-out at Alton

Me and three friends decided to go the day after a house party without going to bed. Seemed like a great idea at the time, the sun beating down on our car. We get there, hangovers kick in. Grouchy and feeling sorry for ourselves, we nap on the lawns. We're dumb.

Re: Outstanding Customer Service

I'm really happy to read about the great service and how it is appreciated. I work in a busy hotel that is expected to adhere to high, high standards and it is irksome when people don't appreciate the hard work that you are putting in. Unfortunately there is a percentage of the population who cannot...

Re: English Football 2011/2012

The call for 'English grit and passion' is ridiculous in my mind. The so-called golden generation had it in spades and always, always choked on the big stage. Through the spine of the time: Terry, Gerrard, Lampard and Rooney are all players who will take games by the scruff of the neck. Yet its coun...

And the level of pedantry on this thread just hit new levels! I personally would rather they didn't have a baby monster appear - much better see the egg cracking and the lights go out.

Re: You Know You're Addicted to Alton Towers (And TTF) When

And this is surely for the dreams topic? I had similar frustrating dreams where the ride would stop before ...
