Is it because both jobs use the same tools or something?
Yes it is an important question.
Alan Partridge voice. :D
But if I did it would be on posters who don't know how to reply properly and you'd be at the top!
on Roman Road also cut hair? This is important and I need to know.
On one side, people bullshit their hairdresser about where they're going on holiday, what they do for a living and the 'exciting' things they've been up to recently.
On the other side, estate agents bullshit their clients - about absolutely everything.
The karma balance in that place must be pretty even.
Cobblers are skilled people. Stop trying to pigeon hole them.
in german translates into 'facharbeiter'
kinda like fuckerbiter
I don't know. Maybe they use the same machines?
... along with trophies and picture frames.
the world is a confusing place. Maybe I should just pluck up the courage and ask one.
as IO saw the title, I knew it was you who posted it.
though I thought it might be Saturn
Where do all those odd socks go??!!!?!
good point though. Where do they go?
On a sidenote, cavalier and clay arrived yesterday. I'm 2 months behind!
it's a fat mother of a book
just like kebab shops that also sell overpriced stella. tradition i guess.
in a kebab shop that sells Stella. I may be going to the wrong kebab shops. If such a thing exists.
it would eliminate the need for the possibly dangerously disorientating drunken diversion on the way home if this happened.
You could just go to a kebab shop and get drunk.
Actually it would work better the other way round- a pub which serves doners.
In practice: how much would that pub stink, and how much drunken-fun-leading-to-possible-death would you try and have with the big spinning stick?
I'll draft the proposal, you find me some turkish guys.
How did I get this gig? I think I've been done.
he's probably got some locked in his basement or something.
had a kebab/burger shop in the back room where the gigs are held
well, maybe it was a mild exageration. but these places definitely exist. one of my highlights of last summer was paying £15 for a bottle of very nasty wine from a takeaway at the start of the curry mile in manchester at about 4:30 in the morning, watching my friend take the first sip and then puke it all over her shoes.
that isn't to say i lead an empty life, i just like seeing people hurl.
the premier late night booze stop
but it does make sense that declining shoe repairs due to cheap mass-market footwear would create a need for cobblers to diversify
so there you have it
With increasing rental prices in city centres AND the huge rise in online fantasy gaming, I don't understand why they haven't gone under.
Makes me smile every time.
The only explanation that I can think of is that maybe somebody once accidentally dropped a key into the shoe repair machine(?) and an exact copy came out.
At this point, a lightbulb appeared above said person's head and the rest is history.
but i did once go in a shop in blackpool that was a chemist on one side and an off licence on the other!
'Go on, throw in a trophy as well!'
