Me !!! Although I might pinch a few bottles for raffle prizes

PS. Never had a takeaway at home or away......but did go in a MacDonalds about 30 years ago!

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

On a more general "delivery" theme, I ordered 150 worth of wine from Tesco one Xmas. When it hadn't arrived 2days after expected, I rang and was told "your wife refused to accept it and sent the driver away". It then transpired that they'd tried to deliver to the wrong address . Hands up all those who would turn away 150 worth of "free" booze just a few days before Xmas .

Of course I'd turn it away if I hadn't ordered it or didn't think it was for us.

On a rally we would sometimes organise a Fish supper, especially if up in Scotland or not end of the country.for the whole rally that is of course.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

We use them occasionally when away.

The best bet is to ask in reception if you are on a campsite as the wardens/owners there will know who delivers and usually can suggest which ones are nice (or not). Have the post code/address of the site handy and get the delivery person to ring you when 5 mins away so you can wait at the entrance.

If we are away for 3 nights we will eat in the MH on nights 1 and 3 and usually treat ourselves if near a pub/restaurant or if there is a takeaway that we fancy that deliver. Another treat option are these box meals that all the big supermarkets do...Indian or Chinese meals: usually 2 mains and rice/noodles etc for about 6-7.

In summer we do less of this as its usually BBQ's all the way...


I like to use big words which I don't really understand so it makes me look more photosynthesis!

When we had a really busy night at work and no chance to get off ward for meal we used to order in food. Hospital put a stop to staff doing so, but not parents, patients or relatives,
C&CC dont allow supermarket deliveries well not in Scarborough, had never thought of getting one, but they said it had 'got out of hand'

It is nearly 30 years for me also. I was going for a drink(s) with some pilot colleagues, who when they are not flying next day can sink a few. So I decided to have a 'defensive' McDonalds. 4 pints later set off home, stopped to leave message for someone at wine bar, 3 glasses of wine later, was stopped by Panda car because he had spotted tax disc out of date in Station CP. Breathalysed, not shown reading but let go on my way. He did not stop me for bad driving.

Obviously did better than when I fell asleep after I had done landing at Manchester after 3 night flights - Capt. had taken over only nose-wheel steering wheel.

McDonalds have their uses.
