HAPPY TALK: Extra charges

Michael O’Leary wanders into a bar in Dublin and orders a pint of Guinness.

“That will be just one euro sir”

He is flabbergasted.  What value!

He gets out his credit card.  Michael O’Leary does not carry money.

“Off course the glass is an extra,” says the barman.  “That will be a further three euro.  You can keep the glass, but it’s not allowed back in this pub due to health and safety rules.  You never know where it may of been”.

“And would you mind getting off the stool.  Otherwise it’s another 2.50.  You can stand if you like.  We are also thinking about charging for the loos”.
