What thread is for giving out about the cost of energy?

Remember Texans were getting bills for $5,000 earlier in the year and it looked pure mad. But now coffee shops are tweeting about getting bills for €10,000

Just listening to this Aer Lingus chaos on LiveLine

It's not there was an IT problem - this happens
It shows up for me that companies like Aer Lingus don't give one flying fuck about their customers, i.e. us
Bordering on almost open contempt

I know RyanAir are pricks.
But I have not had anything like this with any of the other European or American carriers that I have flown with regularly.

The idea that anyone in that company should give a shit about you while you're in their care is a foreign concept to them.

I dunno if this is especially so with us in Ireland, but it feels that way to me.

didn't he announce a while back that he had cancer?

though the wording in that article suggests something a bit different might be up alright
That's my thought from reading that. Like they'd have said cancer straight out of the gate if it was that.

You can't really have a go at an addict anymore - nor should you really

But everyone's had that experience where someone's addiction has fucked with their life, their family's life, their plans.
Some brother or uncle showing up at the wedding or Christmas trolleyed or loaded on pills. You want to help the guy, but it's also "AH FFS, lad. How many fucking times?"

Except it's also his bandmates pay day, and a load of people's weekend plans and flights and bookings and lads working crew at the Point and so on.
Getting a bit long in the tooth for this lark like.


Obviously if it's the cancer, I'm giving some hostages to fortune here.



Excuse the long rant pls

I mean, I don't know but it says "singer Christy Dignam is experiencing a "setback" with ongoing medical treatment"
You are probably right

And it's only Wednesday, so it's not like they couldn't have sobered him up for a Saturday show.

Sorry, Christy!
