Michael O’Leary goes into a pub in Cork and asks for a pint of Guinness.  The barman nods and says, “That will be one euro.”

A pleased O’Leary hands over the money and comments, “That’s very cheap.”

“Yes sir, it is,” replies the barman, “however, if you want to drink the Guinness in a glass, you’ll have to pay an extra €3.”

The Chief Executive scowls but pays up.  He takes his drink and moves towards a seat.

“Ah, sir, if you want to sit down, you’ll first have to sit in this frame,” observes the barman.

Unfortunately O’Leary can’t squeeze into the frame. “Nobody could fit in that little thing,” he complains.

“Then you’ll have to pay a surcharge of €5 for your seat, sir,” cautions the barman.

“This is ridiculous,” cries O’Leary. “I want to see the manager.”

“Certainly sir,” responds the barman. “Here is his email address or, if you wish, you can contact him between 9 and 9.10 any Monday morning. Calls are free until they are answered. Then there is a talking charge of only 10 cents per second.”

A furious O’Leary swears he’ll never come into this pub again, to which the barman answers, “That’s perfectly okay sir, but remember, we’re the only pub in Ireland selling pints for one euro!”

    That pub owner must have travelled with the infamous airline at one time.

    Now is the colourful advert for ‘Ascot early discount tickets’ at the end, all part of the post?

    This one actually came to me in one of those forwarded emails with a million recipients that I don’t usually read, but I spotted the name of my bête noir. I can’t remember who sent it to me.

      Your name is Irish, so I presume you know the guy/airline we’re on about. His website must be the most tortuous torturing trap designed to extract every unnecessary penny from his poor customers without ever being contactable for complaints or even questions! God help you if you change your mind!

    It’s a good one … a brilliant one … been around since he wanted to us to pay for using the washrooms aboard the planes. To be honest I just hate to fly with Ryan air – there is so many much better airlines those days to use. When everything is added up – they are not much cheaper. I just love this joke, because that is just them down to the teeth.

    It is a cunning way to do business – and has, seriously, been adopted by many. After the fine print, you end up paying more than for the luxury version!

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
