To anyone who visited the multiplex cinema on the Dublin Road, Belfast, 1995-97:
I was the ticket seller who liked to use the following phrases:

"No student card? No student concession."

"Your card has expired. No student concession."

"Your card is fake. No student concession."

"I don't care that you're Eamonn Holmes - it's still sold out."

I don't apologise for any of it. I fucking loved it.

Will you be adopting a similar tact with parenting?

This morning I caught myself saying to her "treat my nipple with respect, goddamnit".
She's 3 days old but hey, it's never too early to give them severe parental angst.

If you think things are challenging
Now with a lack of breast-respect - wait until she starts wanting to watch 'In the Night Garden'.

Mental torture at its finest.

You'll have 'fun'
referring to 'Makka Pakka' as 'Mister Spakka' though. Hours of family jollity.
I haven't got kids, and still I know this. Christ.

Congratulations on your little one!
I was just looking at your profile to see if you'd had the little'un yet (nothing like a bit of internet stalking) and saw your photo and thought "She's having a girl" and I'm very pleased to see that I was right :)

I had fun doing the 'your names not down your not coming in' thing at a nightclub many years ago.

To anyone who visited the HMV in the Oracle in Reading 8 years ago
I was the till monkey who liked to use the following phrases:

"No student card?”Fuck it 10% discount anyway."

"Your card has expired.”Fuck it 10% discount anyway."

"Your card is fake.”Fuck it 10% discount anyway"

I don't apologise for any of it. I fucking loved it and the Karma gods repaid me, as one of the stoodents I served, who ended up working there after I had left, remembered me and gave me a £10 card credit.
