JC's comments were indeed a tad harsh and when I watched the clip you could feel the ice forming before he'd finished speaking.

 

I didna say anything bad, it was just an observation!.

Wasting your time there Groilick.. He speaks many dialects.

I looked up "unwordly pratts", In all the dictionaries I could think of, But can't find the meaning of it... Closest I could find was a reference to a 'gentlemans' club in London.

I assume it's a members code of some kind?! :?

Mmmm - you could try looking up 'PRAT' in the singular and where it involves more than one i.e. two PRATS' (as in you and Kavi's case).... (sorry I misspelt using a double t originally).... :lol:

Bye the way, the only 'club' I have been near recently, is a 'Club Biscuit'..

Now go and do something useful :wink:

Yep, Got it Wiktionary has it as;

 

Prat. See also prát and přát

(English slang) The female genitals.

 

I'm inclined to agree to some extent. Though I believe that's a fairly long winded attempt at eluding the Shetlink swear filter. :roll:

Prat - no I would only go as far as 'A Major Idiot' or if I am having double the fun, 'Two Major Idiots'..

You must feel a bit lonely at times eh, as nobody can surely understand you?

And here's me thinking you come from Lerwick .... :)

^^ Very well put.

 

Back on topic though.. As someone said earlier, We're not losing a charity shop. It's just being replaced with one that collects for a more relevant cause (for Shetlanders, at least).

Back to the original topic, I find it strange that a shop which has no capital tied up in stock ( all donated), pays no wages (apart from the manager) pays no Commercial Street business rates, finds 'trading conditions difficult'.

Definitely something odd there. :?:

The rent and rates are very high, prices rose dramatically, people stopped coming in, there were many high dramas and investigations - I worked there for 12 years - managers came and went at high speed which does not make for consistency and reliable staff was hard to come by. All these things contributed to the demise of Oxfam.
