Default Schrader valve

I visited a local tyre place today and asked if they would sell me a Schrader valve. They said they had never heard of such a thing...I explained what they were and where they were located.

"Oh, is that what they're called." said the tyre fitter.

.. and, after all that, mine was just loose (never had that happen before though).

Greggs refused to sell me a granary loaf once. They said they didn't sell them. I pointed at one behind the counter and said that's it there. The lady serving replied that it's a "country style" loaf and she could sell me that, but not a granary. I gave up and just bought it.

Just try paying for something costing 8.10 with a Tenner and a 10p in most shops these days. The look of confusion on the face of most younger till jockeys is a picture. I've yet to be given the 10p back along with 1.90 in shrapnel but a work colleague did last year.

My niece (30 years old ) has a degree in geography, one day in the car my brother handed her a book of road maps - she didn't know how to use it - words fail me !
