On top of the world
Well, it looks like summer has arrived.
I’m not talking about the fact that the sun is shining for a rare change.
I’m not basing my pronouncement on the fact that I can actually go out without my snot freezing.
No. I’m basing my assertion on the simple fact that a driver stopped me on the road today and asked for directions. That only seems to happen in the summer.
Now, he was a foreigner [Eastern European? Who gives a fuck?] and he wanted directions to the road to Dublin.
I would like to point out something here at this point. If you want to drive around the mountains at least have the common sense to bring and use a SatNav. If you don’t have a SatNav then buy a fucking map first. And if all that is beyond your meagre intellect then try to remember what fucking road you took to get to the village so you can retrace your fucking steps.
You see, this is a complicated area. I can’t just tell you to take a particular road and that will solve your problem, I have to give detailed directions which frankly I couldn’t be arsed doing. Not that you’d understand that anyway because you’re a fucking foreigner.
I took my usual way out.
I told him to carry on the road he was on and to turn right at the signpost for Dublin.
He thanked me [I think] and drove off.
I should point out that there is no signpost to Dublin up on the bogs. There isn’t a signpost to anywhere up there. It’s bleak and beautiful and it isn’t sullied by such trivial details as signposts. Anyway, there are so many junctions, bog-roads and turf cutters’ roads that signposts would be impossible.
And if you can’t find your way out of the village, you haven’t a fucking chance in hell of finding your way out of the bogs.
Happy days are here again.
You miserable old twat. Looks like the days of helping a weary traveler on his way are long past .
But I am helping them on their way and showing them some of the best scenery in the country. It's a lot nicer up there than it is in Dublin anyway.
and it's been pissing down here for days and I am hung over from celebrating Cinco de Mayo and in an ugly mood.
Is that some kind of West of Ireland festival?
[And you're usually in an ugly mood. What's special about this one?]
West of Ireland. Good one that. If you don't put it on FB I will.
Feel free. Westport Chinese Festival?
?? no comprende muchacho
Did Helman's sponsor the mayo festival tt?
Oh what I wouldn't do for a burrito.. mmmm.
Sorry GD, off topic there.
Try and be nice to the foreigners will ya!
"Try and be nice to the foreigners will ya!" Why?
Anne Burrito means little donkey. Can't imagine what you would want one of those for. Oh, ok. I get it now. Shame on you.
Well I couldn't eat a whole like all at once tt..
We don't do have mexicano here too much.
Although a friend of mine from a 'bad' area here in town, refers to the worse area in the neighbour as mexico. 🙂
We had a festive here over the weekend as well btw – 'Knackerfest'
'do have' jesus, I can't write today.
Cinco de Mayo, the Mexicans celebrating wining a battle against France. Like that is difficult to do. It was around 2000 against 6 and it still took them all afternoon.
Don't forget – garlic-breath can kill at five hundred paces. That shortened the odds somewhat?
Not to mention the gaseous by-product from tonnes of digested pinto beans. Anyone got a light?
Because in everything do unto others, as you would have done unto you.
I & I.. rasta. peace. That's the why.
Fuck that! Foreigners are screwing me over at the moment without any chance at retaliation, so I'm only playing by their rules.
Wait a minute!…I thought that Ireland didn't have snakes!……I was thinking of visiting one day…..but I guess that's not true!….Boo Hiss!
Most of the Irish snakes spend their time in Brussels so it's safe to travel. Just bring a SatNav. Or a map. Or if you really have to ask a local for directions, just make sure you buy him a feed of pints first. Especially if he is a distinguished looking chap with a beard and who smokes a pipe.
Check..it's on the list…bring extra money to buy alcohol for locals!
No. Just bring extra to buy alcohol for one local.
Could you not install a 'Like' button, all this communicating in words is exhausting..
I have nothing further to add, nor any detail of my level of like, or what indeed, I like.
I just 'Like'.
Are you serious? A fucking "like" button?
OK. I would but I can't find any code that includes a "dislike" button. Fair's fair?
yeah, I would concur, but I am waiting for the fucking button!
