Well that's too far................. there's a Costa on Tala Island - I can drive there and back in less than ten minutes.

Are you sure I can't get you anything?

Well, if you're offering I'll have a coffee and a lemon curd muffin. I wanted one at the weekend but never got the chance.

My ex brother in law is an Area Manager for Coffee Republic, and he told me once that it took 4 weeks of training to work in one of their shops...

1 week to learn how to make the coffees, .....and 3 weeks to learn how to keep a straight face when asking some punter for 6 quid for a cup of poxy coffee and a muffin !
