It's even worse than when flying with Easyjet.





Never flown with Easyjet..............sniff.


It's about 10 years ago now but flew a few times from Liverpool to Madrid.

You have to literally run across the tarmac to get a favoured seat as it's 'first come, first served'. Very germanic!

I think they have made it more civil nowadays but you could spot those that travelled Easyjet as regulars.

On holiday in Turkey, a while back my late wife & I were sitting in a boat waiting to go on a sightseeing cruise. The boat must've had forty seats or more and was empty apart from we two.
A party of Germans arrived, embarked, cast a Teutonic gaze around the boat and march en masse to sit in the front !
Which is of course, their rightful place ! pig

That'd be it! Mind you, ours wasn't quite as fancy and ended up encrusted with lime/minerals....but that is certainly it.

She also had her "German washing machine". a long-handled thing with a large perforated brass bell on the end.


Clever lot these Germans ! Long handled thing with bells on ! Sounds a bit like our more basic "posher".......... long handled thing with three smaller bits on one end that was shoved up & down in the dolly tub , or built in copper if the house was older. But bells ! That sounds exotic,....... !'Exclamation'

Ehehehehe....okay okay...."bell-shaped" then! Smile But,yes, Mom's "German washing machine" sounds very much like your posher. Pretty sure ours was brass however....but possibly copper.

The Army couldn`t run without `borrowing`.

My Dad...a supply tech with Ordance Corp...preferred the term "liberated"....we never bought paper clips,envelopes, pens or pencils or paper towels or that brown wrapping paper for 30 years!!!! In fact, I remember a large roll of that brown 'butcher' paper that we used to wrap just about every parcel ever sent plus my text books from school back in the days when we had to create our own book covers in order to protect the binding and covers of the textbooks.

Dad died in 1980. Mom died in 2001 and she still had that damn roll...significantly skinnier than I remember growing up,of course, but still had it. Damn thing moved everywhere with us....Ottawa, Germany (4moves there alone!), and back to Canada (Mom had 4 moves there too!).

We also had a complete dinner set of PMQ dishes that were 'liberated' upon our return to Canada. These were white with navy blue and, I think gold, edging and the Canadian powers-that-be weren't prepared to pack them up and send them on down to Lahr so they were being smashed and used as landfill....also 'liberated' a side table and stool.
