I think I'll stick to Aer Lingus, despite it having the world's most annoying little song as its hold music on the phone.

A propos, sort of... found this one in a(nother damn) box a couple of days ago.




When I first wore it to my local pool bar, the manager said "I really want that, how much will you sell it to me for?, I will pay double the price you paid."

I said don't be silly, what size do you want? and delivered it to him a few evenings later. Free beer and pool all evening...
