@CIA: I can neither confirm nor deny that my perfect sandwich is tuna because I am fun 'n flirty, lol ;D
Spot on. To paraphrase a Bloc Party album opener with half decent lyrics, it's like eating (fart) gas. I remember being handed one on a school French trip - I've smelt nicer animal corpses than that.
Weirdly, a (very fresh) fried egg butty with a lashing of pepper and Tabasco always tastes amazing.
I'm a mexican chicken :D
Ham Salad Sub Roll
True. Never do like a ham sandwich. This.is.spooky.
probably 'cos i like gettin' jiggy wi' it
Spookily enough the Mexican Chicken Oval Bite is my Greggs sandwich of choice (
the bake and two cakes option.
what I really want to know is how it gathered that I'm "sultry, sexy, and fantastically flirty" from the fact that I'd eat the whole picnic hamper by myself
Dolce and Gabbana. Rachel and Ross. Strawberries and cream. Some things are just meant to go together - and you know it. With your perfectly organised diary, sharp outfits and impeccably tidy desk, you love everything being just so. You enjoy spending the weekends cleaning your house or reorganising your huge shoe collection.
...the book they sell in store? I have no idea why I find it so tempting.
MORTON: Young Rascal, what's that peculiar delicacy you're eating? The latest culinary import from the Orient, perhaps?
RASCAL: Why, Morton, it's a run-of-the-mill snausage roll. As a peasant living in the past times, I value my tuck.
MORTON: A SNAUSAGE ROLL?!? Why, never in all of my days have ever I seen such a beastly manifestation of the Devile's art made objecktive in snausage and pastry.
RASCAL: Well... (hesitantly)... I nicked it from their rotting pile of refuse out back. Because, Morton, I love snausage rolls but I feel awkward in those independently-run bakeries because the owners all know their shit and have their weird sorts of bread with pointless seeds and walnuts in on display
RASCAL: and you go in and you axe for, for example, a bacon sandwich and then they give you all sorts of myriad choices like do you want Ye Olde Ketchuppe or what colour bread do you want. And then anyway cause they know their shit about bread and stuff, I feel like I ask for a snausage roll and then - as I leave - they're judging me for not having bought something all obscure like Buttermilk and Spelt Soda Bread or Whole Wheat Crackers with Cheese and Medlar Jelly
MORTON: Surely there has to be some way to rectify this problem...
RASCAL: Perhaps you can use your influence in court to make a bakery that is accessible to the masses and uses Paddy McGuinness's ancestor to advertise it and get all the plebs in an that. I don't know, just an ide--
MORTON: I KNOW! I know how to solve your awkwardness in bakeries! I shall invent Drowned in Sound, a bulletin board pon local library for people to talk about Gay Dad and how they're scared of choice
(centuries later SEAN found MORTON's blueprints and thought it would be an excellent front for his T-shirt business. Meanwhile... the following things happened:
Greggs was founded by John Gregg as a Tyneside bakery in 1939. It opened its first shop in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne in 1951.
When John died in 1964, the bakery was taken over by his son, Ian, assisted by his brother, Colin. Major expansion began soon after, including the acquisitions of other bakeries such as Glasgow-based Rutherglen in 1972, Leeds-based Thurston's in 1974, Broomfields the Bakers, London, Bowketts the Bakers in Kent, Tooks the Bakers (East Anglia) and Manchester-based Price's in 1976.
In 1994, the company acquired the Bakers Oven chain of bakers' shops from Allied Bakeries.
In 1999, Greggs rebranded its 100 Braggs bakers shops as Greggs of the Midlands and its Leeds-based Thurston chain as Greggs of Yorkshire.
Starting in 2003, in an attempt to test the foreign market, Greggs opened a total of ten stores in Belgium; principally in Antwerp and Leuven. These have all since closed.
On 9 December 2008, Greggs announced that all of its 165 Bakers Oven branded shops would be re-branded into the Greggs brand so that all the shops could benefit from the Greggs national advertising campaign. In March 2011, the company opened its 1,500th shop, in York. In May 2012, the company began selling frozen pasties through the Iceland supermarket chain. In January 2013, Greggs replaced its CEO Ken McMeikan with Punch Taverns CEO Roger Whiteside. McMeikan left the firm for Brakes Group.)
And there you have it; the true Greggs story
... OR IS IT?
@CIA: I can neither confirm nor deny that I apologise, lol ;D
Wants the staff at Greggs to put his sugar in his coffee for him because apparently he cant do it without dousing himself.
Also can't open a frijii milkshake. What a calamity. Whole feed is just him being an entitled dickhead.
People Who: are everything that's wrong with the Great British public.
Can we make customer service a mandatory obligation like some countries do with the military?
At 16 you are drafted to the nearest callcentre.
