Spare a thought for Michael O'Leary, Chief Executive of RYANAIR.
Arriving in a hotel in Dublin, he went to the bar and asked for a pint of draught Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be one euro please, Mr. O'Leary."
Somewhat taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap" and handed over his money.
"Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "But you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll need one of ours. That will be another 3 euros."
O'Leary grimaced, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat. "Oh, so you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That's another 2 euros, and actually, I see that you didn't pre-book the seat, so in fact it will be another 4...
O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up. "I see that you want to bring that laptop with you" added the barman. "And since that wasn't pre-booked either, that will be another 3 Euros"
O'Leary was so pissed off that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled, "This is a f***ing rip-off, I want to speak to the manager".
"That's fine, but you can only contact him by email", said the barman. "And by the way, that will be another 2 euros for use of the counter. And unless you are going to wash the glass yourself, that will be another 3ˆ It will be another 3 to use the washroom and make sure you tidy up all the area before you leave”....
Have a nice day......
