Q: Ticket office open, but ticket booking offline... tomorrow?

Why is the office still open when ticket sales are closed?

 

They just sit there.... mayo mayo... mintien mintien.

 

Why not just shut shop and go home to get ready for the 7am assault?

Amen. Another example I’ve observed several times, is when our suppliers suffer a power outage, yet require all employees to stay, even though sitting idle or on their phones, in the dark.

Maybe so people can do other things like return tickets for refunds?

'Why is the office still open when ticket sales are closed?'

 

The main reason is because the manager gets no money out of this, nor the staff members under him or her. 

 

And if they call the boss about this, the boss will either get all the extra profits and/or ask who thought of this, and fire him or her after awhile using some lame excuses, because the person is likely to become his competitor one day, after learning the ropes and stealing the customer list. This is prc 'logic'.

I got a train ticket in the end. Heading out mid week, cant get a return yet.

My plan is to get there, have a few beers, then use my drunken homing instinct to get me home Smile

I always seem to get home ok.

These fixed holidays are fustrating. In the old days the UK had staggered holidays. Each town had a different week. Ok, not for national holidays. Summer Holidays. But at least you had a chance to get away.

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
