Ironic really, I am currently sitting at a place where everyone else’s holiday is just finishing, yet mine is just beginning.
Ibiza Airport – full of skanky ho’s that have been pumped full of tunes, drugs and spunk for the last two weeks – they just can’t get enough!!
I really did want to talk about that magical German efficiency that we are all well aware of. My boss is German, the two Stewardesses onboard are German, the furniture people who arrived at the house in Ibiza are German ( all 4 of them) – it’s a full German team
Now you would expect exemplary efficiency from such a team but what I witnessed was one of natures biggest abnormalities, like flying fish or the San Andreas Fault.
So many Germans, with so many efficient plans, got so confused as to which plan was the most efficient and failed miserably to make a plan that took them forwards at all. It was painful yet somewhat beautiful to witness and an even greater pleasure to step forward and tell them how to resolve it! An Englishman promoting the G.S.D. Attitude to the Germans (Getting Shit Done)
Staying with stereotypes of Nationalities and still at Ibiza Airport, this is something I really need to share. Burger King is something of a treat for me – regular readers will be aware of this. So, to start my holiday, I hit the Burger King. A Double Whopper with Cheese and Bacon XXL Burger. It came as a meal so I got fries and a choice of drinks. I am not much for the sugary soft drinks that come with it so I asked if I could have a coffee as part of the meal deal instead. The girl behind the counter shook her head ‘No’, a brief moment of curiosity flashed in front of me. She had said no to my request but not given me the ‘you’re fucked now’ Spanish shrug that I have become accustomed to after years of living and working in Spain. She then listed all of the drinks I could have.
The last word out of her mouth was ‘Beer’! I had to double-check – ‘So I can’t have coffee but I can have a Beer as part of my Meal Deal’? Yes was her answer.
Now over the years, the Spanish logic has confused and infuriated me, yet on this occasion it actually made me smile. I had beer with my burger and thoroughly enjoyed it.
