Re: Scouser takes offence at CAKE
The Indy facebook page the other day got a murderer and their victim mixed up.

No way of proving it but I'd bet my life it was intentional, just to get traffic.

They also keep reposting old stuff, in some cases from 2-3 years ago, usually stuff like "should religion be illegal?" and "going vegan could save the world".

It's always been left leaning but a few years ago it was a genuinely respectable paper.

It seems like humans in the western world are being softened up for something. Having your logical faculties taken out at the knees.

Not me. They can't get to me, because I'm terminally cynical and 9/10ths robot.

But you lot are fucked. :-)

Nurse

I noticed it years ago, I now often wonder how a guy being miffed about something that happened in Mumbai makes the news in the UK, 99% of all news content is absolutely irrelevant to 99% of people.

Re: Scouser takes offence at CAKE
This is an insidious and growing trend in media.

Over the last few weeks I've noticed more and more stories on the Mail website that are really mawkish, designed to make readers overly emotional. It's all 'look at this photo of a parent howling in agony at the bedside of his dying child' or 'loads of brave survivors of abuse show off their scars', etc.

It gives me the creeps. The 21st century is shit. Humans wallowing in victimhood and FEELS.

Great facebook page:

Re: Scouser takes offence at CAKE
The Echo is an absolute dogshit paper.

A lot of local titles (along with the Indy and Metro) seem to have gone full Buzzfeed over the past couple of years and the majority of their content is clickbait.

Post a story which conforms to the stereotype of whingeing scousers = get loads of traffic made up of people cunting them off = advertising revenue

No different to "10 reasons your gran is racist, number 9 blew my mind" type shit.

Re: Scouser takes offence at CAKE
If the Liverpool Echo run stories so blatantly full of faux outrage just so people can get something for free (how big does that sticker saying 'Kopites are gobshites' have to be before it gets noticed? It's nearly as big as the fucking box) the good people of Liverpool are going to lose their reputation as the most honest and hard-working citizens in Britain.

Re: Scouser takes offence at CAKE
I'm pretty sure a few years back on here we had someone who admitted to systematically complaining to companies via email about poor service in order to get freebies, vouchers and shit.

What a Liverpool fan was doing posting on here God only knows.

A local newspaper that sets about telling you how to mump a poxy fucking Subway sandwich.

Unbelievable.

We've all stood waiting to order some fast food and wondered what really goes on behind the scenes.

Have the staff washed their hands? How long has the food been sitting there? What does it look like in all those places the public can't see?

Well now one employee who works for Subway has dished the dirt, the Mirror reports .

Using the name Nope_Nope_Nope the anonymous man took to Reddit to reveal the things he saw when working the graveyard shift, alone, for a year.

He said: "I'm very close friends with the RM (regional Manager) and the DM (district manager), and I've learnt many things about the company many people may not know (and in some cases, may not want to know)."

This is what he had to say:

1. How to get free food
Let's start with the important stuff - getting freebies.

According to the employee, there are two very effective ways of getting your mitts on free grub.

Number one? Complain.

"Look really distressed and disgusted with how they're making your sandwich. Order something, and take it to your seat, open it.

"Walk back and tell them it's not made right. 9 times out of 10, they'll just make you a free courtesy sandwich."

He added this might not work everywhere, but it's certainly how the staff are trained in his particular store.

"Another way is to be extremely nice," he continued.

"Start a lot of casual conversation and engage the sandwich artist. Then when he's ringing you up, look into your wallet and exclaim 'Oh s***, I thought I had more cash! I wont have enough.

"Again, it's a gamble, but if you play your cards right, you'll get a discount of some kind..."

She couldn’t understand what the word meant but she knew it was a word.

Here is another word for you and your daughter Graeme.

'It's not on' - KFC blame staff member 'trying to be funny' for swear word gravy

Graeme Harrison found the word "F***" printed on the sell by date label on a tub of gravy with his daughter's meal

KFC have blamed a staff member “trying to be funny” after a swear word was printed on a little girl’s gravy tub label .

Dad Graeme Harrison complained to KFC after he found the word f*** printed on a sell by date label on the tub of gravy in a meal he bought for his four-year-old daughter.

He told the ECHO he “couldn’t believe it” when he saw the blatant swear word on the item - served inside a popcorn chicken children’s box meal bought from Litherland KFC.

He added: “I am lucky my daughter is not older and could understand what it said.

“But she can spell and knew it was a word. It is outrageous.”

His anger was then exacerbated by the fact he received a £10 voucher, which he called an “insult”, and only an automated letter in response to his complaint.

The 36-year-old said: “It has been nearly two months and I have no explanation as to how it happened.”

Today a KFC spokesperson responded to the complaint and said what happened is “not on”.

The spokesman said: “Looks like a team member was trying to be funny here, but it’s not on.

“We’re sorry for Graeme’s experience and the area manager will be reaching out to him personally to apologise.”

Graeme, who works for Jaguar Land Rover, said: “I will await to hear what the manager has to say to me personally”.

In both cases this is people angling for compensation, the faux outrage is obvious.

Re: Scouser takes offence at CAKE
A dad was horrified after he found the word F**K printed on a tub of KFC gravy in a meal bought for his four-year-old.

Graeme Harrison bought a popcorn chicken, children’s box meal, from KFC in Litherland, on the way home from a Paw Patrol concert with his young daughter.

However, when he got the meal home and looked at its contents, he was shocked to see the swear word F**K printed on a sell by date sticker, on the lid of the gravy tub.

Graeme, 36, said: “I couldn’t believe it.

“I just thought ‘you have got to be kidding me’.

“It is outrageous.

“It was a blatant swear word on a children’s box meal.

“I am lucky that my daughter is not older and could understand what it said.

“But she can spell and knew it was a word.”

Dad-of-one Graeme Harrison wants an explanation as to how the word F**K came to be printed on the label of a KFC tub of gravy, included in his child's box meal

The dad-of-one said he immediately tweeted the KFC customer care team and the following day received a letter in the post regarding the incident and was asked to fill in a complaints form.

However, apart from receiving a £10 voucher from KFC, which Graeme has called “an insult”, he has had no communication or apology from KFC since the incident on August 16.


He said: “I want to know how it happened and what they are going to do about it.

“That label can’t have been something the computer just did itself and I am pretty sure it will have been printed on other items.

“The letter I was sent was just an automated response and it was just a generic complaints form, I don’t even think they have looked at the complaint and the £10 voucher is just an insult.

“They have all my details but there has been no follow up what so ever.

“I am shocked they haven’t contacted me, I don’t feel like, give the circumstances, I should be the one chasing them up.

“It has been nearly two months and I have no explanation as to how it happened.

“I think they are hoping by not responding it can be swept under the carpet.

“It is unbelievable.”

KFC has been contacted for comment.
