Fancy nipping for a quick two-thirds of a pint?

Thumb Down

Money, money, money

Yeah, and the two-thirds by volume will be priced at a fair profit over two thirds whole pint by volume cost and there's money to be made from selling less stuff for more. And there's a load of glasses to be bought and stocked in the pubs and, and, and, please can I mess about with all the things you've not even thought were a problem just for the sake of fiddling about and trying to squeeze a couple of extra pennies out of you to pay the mortgage for the house/feed the drugs'n'hookers habit I can never afford.

Thanks very much.

BT could get the work...

...and maybe pass the patient data on to a third party for some focused bedside marketing?

As an aside, there is a satire by the Roman playwright, Terence, called Phormio in which there is a character (of the same name) described as a 'scheming parasite'. How very nearly apt.
