Credit card machine charged- and AFTD  packed  check
(for those  unaware of the acronym AFTD  it stands for Anti Fat Tart Device and is a  short length of cable with  loose connectors at either end- as a few years back  a FT knocked the shi ...   smashed the  credit card machine by  showing her  baby - buggy (complete with maloderous offspring ) and her FA into a gap in which it was never meant to go - not with THAT arse) Nary an apology
so we now take Extra care check !!)

  3. Have a good time at Salute Andy, I know you won't appreciate it until you get back home though.
