Default The dog ate it, the cat was sick on it...

Excuses, excuses.

I've now sold my superb pool / snooker table three times. Bear in mind that each time the buyer absolutely committed to buy it and come and collect it.

First buyer's excuse: Sorry, I don't have a room big enough.
Second buyer's excuse: actually no excuse, he just didn't turn up, I eventually managed to get hold of his brother: He had to travel abroad suddenly for an emergency.
Third buyer's excuse: I have to take my wife abroad for medical treatment.

First was a colleague, who I shan't pass comment on. The other two came via Dubizzle, and neither gave the regional caveat about things happening over which someone else has control.

So c'mon guys—really nice slate bed pool / snooker table. Very heavy, very accurate. Only been used a few times, and only once for coital experimentation. 138 x 260 cm. AED 1,500 ono.

I would love it, but I have a feeling my flatmate would kill me.

That said, I might have a word at work. I'm sure everyone would appreciate a pool table in work.

i don't think it can be called work if it has a pool table.

Hahaha, no. Believe it or not, I don't want to just dick about at work.

We have an expectation that we'll be here from 8 until 7 daily. **** that.

I want to come in, crack on, write shite on BE, handle my business and get out at a reasonable time.

I don't want to be offered a game of pool by some *********** that I work with (you know my job so you can imagine some of the people in my office and their ability to be helmets) during my 'lunch hour' so we talk about Suarez being a cock end or how silly the Scots were last night getting two idiot sin-bins.

I just want to get in, get on and get out so I can sit in my pants on my sofa, drink beer and order pizza.

How much for the shitty dogs playing pool pics. We had those in our snooker room when we were kids, brings back good time memories but my Mrs would kill me.

You obviously haven't seen OMD's offices in Media City. You can see three pool tables, a full range of consoles, fully loaded gym and god knows what else from the carpark side of the road.

I've never heard of OMD.

Maybe it's because they are all too busy farting about instead of working.
