Were they willing to pay more to cover the £750m (and fast rising) shortfall?

Couple mid to late 20's sat there in the coffee shop for 15 minutes not a word passed between them whilst they flicked and scrolled on phones - Young girl sitting there texting scrolling just nodding to her Mum who was trying to engage her in conversation the world is ****ed - finally turned in to my Dad. I would have dropped it in the Coffee if my wife or daughters sat their doing that no matter how ******* boring they think I am!

Another driving one... people who almost grind to a halt when doing a right turn (that would be a left turn in The UK).

I'm not expecting them to go up on two wheels while turning, but I'm not sure why the need to slow to a crawl either.

Just read some reviews on Trip Advisor, and people are so oblivious to this, and think it's grand they get cheaper rates and the kids get the pool all to themselves... bastards! Of course they get the pool to themselves... nobody else whats to be around them screaming and yelling so leave!
Without wanting to start a separate thread about school holidays, I do have a question about this.

In the UK do all schools start their summer holidays on the same date, or do different schools/counties etc. have different end of term dates?

I ask, because apparently here in The US the dates are all over the place locally, statewide or across the states. The end of term (semester here) for the summer break can range from the end of May to the start of July.

So basically I have fallen foul to thinking kids would still be in school this week based on our local schools still being in session, but find the place we are going to get away inundated with kids of all ages. This has nothing to do with being taken out of school... they are on genuine summer break based on where they go to school.

Frustrating, but fool is us, so have to suck it up.

Most UK schools have the same holidays. Private schools are usually slightly longer. We haven't got the vast range of weather and timezones and States and all that stuff that you have in the US which might account for the variation in holidays?

I wouldn't say 'most' amymore.
Nottinghamshire and Derby obviously border each other but are very often different. For example Notts has 2 weeks off in October, Derby have 1. The easter holidays this year were also different - they both had 2 weeks but one started a week later and ended a week later. Leicestershire usually start earlier than both of them.

Thanks guys, sounds like it’s within a week at the most in The UK. Looks like a five or six week spread here for summer.

Scottish schools always close for the summer at least 2 weeks earlier than the English ones. It’s common for Scots families to rush off on their hols at the beginning of July before the English families turn up and ruin the ambience.

Found that hard when I first moved up here, starting the new school term in mid August. Felt wrong, like I should still be off.

I believe private schools have differing term times too.

Changed this year up here. 5 weeks for summer instead of 6 and 2 weeks in October instead of 1.

And if you have teenagers who have taken their GCSEs, they’ve just finished and won’t be back in school until the start of September!

It is pretty dangerous avoiding the ferk wit's walking around the station eyes glued to their phones and the other type of ferk wit's that dray their tiny cases behind them and cutting across your line of travel.

Always have 2 tills right?
Well one should be for coffee and only coffee. The other should be for all the shit they sell.
(yes, yes, I know their coffee is shit too, but when you don't have any other choice (bar even shittier shit that passes for coffee in Chile).)
Then all those ***** ordering **** knows what can hold each other up for hours, whilst anyone who wants coffee from a coffee shop can get on with their lives.
