So they should look for a house facing mecca, not expect people to give them a discount because it doesn't. I mean if a house has major work needed on it fair enough, but that's a bit cheeky.

Would have kicked them out straight away

I agree that they were being cheeky and going ott. Was just giving context to their point

I'd have stuck twenty percent on top tbh. Bring that nonsense to the bargaining table.

If they're strongly religious then it maybe something they find important in a house. 

Muslims pray towards Mecca so potentially due to that. 

I get that Muslims pray towards Mecca, I've just never even heard anything regarding which way houses face to do with it, I thought it was just the people that had to face that way when praying. 

 

In predominantly Muslim countries do all the houses face the same way? Dunno. Seems proper odd to me though. :huh:

Surely they are just bargaining, just say no thanks if you dont want the offer, or counter with, something like...its got cathedral ceilings, so ill take asking price :)

I've been off the booze for almost 4.5 years now, after a long and self-destructive career caning it.

 

Due to the effects of a genetic heart condition, I've been on Warfarin blood-thinning meds for most of the past 5 years. For multiple reasons, it's a bad idea to combine Warfarin with significant amounts of alcohol. 

 

For medical reasons, not at my request, my cardiologist & GP have just arranged for me to switch from Warfarin to an alternative med......with which alcohol is not an issue....

 

Get thee behind me, Satan!

He's firmly locked in a glass-fronted cabinet for now, but I expect him to rattle the door and point at the empty glass as months and years go by...:ph34r:

Obviously not, they just place their mat so it's facing the right direction. Sounds like this couple are trying to take the piss tbh.

Rubbish. The other half has just spent the whole day in the family court pleading to be allowed contact with his children every other weekend, from Friday to Sunday. The court has decided that their gymnastics on a Friday evening is more important, so we can only have them from the Saturday morning overnight. Funnily enough they only started said gymnastics since he left. 

On the brightside, their weekends with us don't seem to interfere with city playing at home on the whole, and when it does at least it gives me a break 😉

Tiring.

Been working in Paris the last few days now stuck at the airport with a 3 hour delay. Won’t get home til about 1am.

Not keen on Paris. Far too busy and crowded for a country bumpkin like me.

Excellent day in Reykjavík today. We went whale watching but didn’t see any. Later we went to the Icelandic punk museum and turns out the curator is a massive city fan. My lad left him a scarf in honour.

Pretty shite day have to say. 

 

Two rejections from job applications today; 1 from an interview I thought had gone really well and for a company/job that I really thought fit me well.  Sucks as it's really put a downer on my holiday so far. 

 

Just a disheartening really, starting to get a bit hit by the consistent rejections and little to no feedback as to how I can improve

 

Edit: I knew I was never going to walk into something, just Didn't realise id be facing this many rejections given I have a good degree with decent experience in the area I'm looking at.

Bless you for asking mate. It was tough but I just about held it together I think. I told the congregation before I started that I’d wobble a few times and I sure did.

The wife and her brothers were very thankful and so were the rest of the family so I’m glad I did it in a way.

I’ve no idea how people can do a eulogy for their own parents though, big respect to them. Doing it for an in law was difficult enough.

Hammersmith. One of my old haunts. 

 

And the Odeon...or whatever they call it now, seen so many bands at that place.
