We’ve found a flat, and are hoping to move in the next few weeks to Didsbury, which is great because Wythenshawe is quite a rough place, to say the least.
A few weeks ago I went to the local alcohol retailer (might have been something like Bargain Booze) where I was looking for a bottle of red wine. I saw behind the axe proof glass some Wolf Blass Cabernet Sauvignon and enquired in my most cultered voice:
“Excuse me, I can see you have Wolf Blass Cabernet Sauvignon but do you happen have the Merlot?”
The rather large woman behind the counter said:
“Only what’s on the shelf luv”
Fine I thought, I’ll have that. Then some Manc came in behind me and once I’d been served said in the most Liam Gallacher of voices:
“Y’alrite, giss us 4 can o’ fuckin’ stella”
Hmmm, clearly I’m in the wrong place.
