Only in Ireland...

Only in Ireland...

Could the receptionist in the National Car Testing Centre (NCT) give your mother-in-laws car key to someone else.

Only in Ireland...

Could that someone else drive off with said key that was obviously not his.

Only in Ireland...

Could that someone else who has driven off with mother-in-laws key not immediately return with said key thus resulting in mother-in-law waiting at the NCT centre.

Only in Ireland...

Could that someone else stop for lunch and make a delivery before returning key despite being told that mother-in-law has to mind children at a certain time and in a certain place (a long, long way away from the NCT centre).

Only in Ireland...

Could receptionist who gave away the key in the first place go off for lunch leaving mother-in-law waiting alone for the key.

Only in Ireland...

Could I forget to put the yeast in the bread I was making, (actually I think I could do this anywhere)!

You've GOT to be kidding! Your poor MIL!

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if it happened in the US, too!

Beccy said...

Hi Shauna, thanks for dropping by.

My saving grace Sam, I realised as soon as I put it in the tin so was able to make another loaf.

MIL was not happy Susan, I don't think I've ever heaard her so mad, if it had happened to me heads would be rolling...

Poor marie; and I bet she was so nice about it I would have been ranting and raving but of course, this wouldn't do any good as only in Ireland are they so laid back about everything.

beccy forgot to comment on the yeast well actually no comment is probably wisest

Asha said...

Stephanie said...

Oh, so sorry, but then again...

Only in Ireland will the publican commiserate with you and offer to buy you a pint when you've had a bad day. Or at least that happened to me!

Poor MIL!!!

I'll have a pint for the both of you!! Slainte!

Your poor mother in law. What a dozy person!!!

I've done the yeast thing. The bread doesn't work very well does it? Not so much unleavened as inedible!!!

From what Marie told me she was far from nice, she was mad, livid even, the receptionist got an earful, the man who drove off with her key got an earful, Donal got an earful and Gerry at their garage got an earful, (Donal and Gerry because the car couldn't even go through with the NCT due to something not being done properly)!

Thanks Asha that is so sweet.

Stephanie did that happen in rural Ireland because it wouldn't happen much in Dublin? I got a barmans double in Bristol (UK) recently at no extra charge.

Sally luckily I realised as soon as I has finished making it so threw it away and started again. I guess I would've waited a long time for it to rise.
