Q: In God we Trust, all others pay cash?

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6406255/Passengers-forced-chip-pay-REPAIRS-Boeing-787.html

 

 

"In God we Trust, all others pay Cash", this was the sign over the best mechanic in Rome Georgia's office and cash register 30 years ago.

 

A Chinese mechanic in Beijing insisting on cash to get a plane to leave in the capital city of China. This will be laughing stock material for decades. I thought Polish folks pay there bills, at least that is my experience anyway. Does anybody believe a pump even a rebuilt pump of any kind on an airplane only cost 280 pounds. BULLSHIT. The mechanic is already on a salary, so what is the real story? A shakedown at a major city airport of passengers, maybe an Aeroflot in the 80's but that would have been understandable. This is surreal.

The arilines nickel and dime for everything, the mechanic just thinks it's fair to join the gangbang of the customer, it's only fair.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
