Pret a Manger, Notting Hill, by the counter
"We're legally abliged to charge you VAT if you eat in - Nightmare!"
that's just me being a mongopath
obliged, of course
Would be funnier if it said "ghey!" at the end.
morrissey aids < clown aids < hyper aids < mega aids < bad aids < hearing aids < good aids < normal aids.
That's possibly my favourite thing this week.
it say they are legally obliged to serve fatty salty sandwhiches. funny that.
so like half the food going down your oesophegous is 'on the premesis' and half the food going down your oesophegous is 'off the premises' (only half the food vatted?)
I wonder also what the legal definition of eating is....i.e.
compare ......tearing bite off sandwich, yet without masticating or saliva enzymes working......then rushing outside to masticae and swallow........then back on to premisis for the tearing bite.....then off again for mastication.............cw
biting off bit of food offside premisis......and with closed mouth masticating whilst on the premisis................or what if you bit and masticated of premisis and swallowed......but you were on the premisis for the bolus of food getting peristaltically pushed to the stomach and so on re the whole destive process.
I know Im being petty......but the law must have defined it somewhere.
Actually the legal definition (for purposes of dancing in pubs without entertainment licences) is very amusing
in a space" or something similar
WHAT ARE YOU ON ABOUT?@
on the corner of whitehall and trafalgar square. there's a big sign saying "WHAT IS PRET?" at the top, and information about pret below.
because, y'know, there are no prets within the M25. and certainly none within a 10 minute walk of that location. NOPE. NONE AT ALL.
and they cost 50p each.
" are you eating in sir? "
" no " i replied
then I sat in their OUTDOORS SEATING AREA! HA HA HA.
Take that HM Customs & Excise
sorry, wrong government department.
