northern racism
we are originally from yorkshire, although i haven't lived there myself since i was a baby. when i was about 4, the bank that my dad was working for wanted to move him to london. so we all upped sticks and moved to buckinghamshire.

my dad had a lot of administrative stuff that he was handling with the HR and other teams at the head office in london, and he got increasingly frustrated with their patronising attitude towards a little northerner coming to work in the big city. eventually he lost his temper and submitted a sarcastic expenses claim for thinner coats for his whippets due to the warmer weather and a specialist trainer to teach his pigeons to fly south instead of north.

the bank simply paid it without a single murmur.

This is, indeed, brilliant.
If he'd moved from South to North they probably would have paid his expenses to have shandy shipped up from London and to hire a specialist to teach him how to go out in the evening without a polar expedition-approved coat.

Moving from Yorkshire to down south
his new home must have seemed like some sort of magical wonderland.

Although I understand York has a Waitrose now!

You've clearly never been to Harrogate
it makes most southern towns seem about as posh as Kabul.

that place thinks it's Bath, it's not, and even the people in the tourist info office are rude.

You have to admit, it's pretty similar
both places are almost entirely populated by cunts.

And central/north-west Leeds is practically part of greater London.

Its the Waitrose in Meanwood in Leeds thats far more curious; right near an aldi and opposite a Netto.
