Irish advantage

So yesterday morning dropped off my suv for oil change and also asked them to check the battery. Had a few mornings where it was a bit of trouble starting. As I explained to the lads there - you have to give it a bit of welly to get her going (foot to floor and pumping gas a few times)

Well the chap asked me if I was Irish - yep I am - still sounding like I am off the boat. Well he said I'm Irish a few generations back so in that case its half price for the battery check

And when I got the bill it was half which amused me greatly

Being Irish - its not just for St Patricks Day folks

now go put some welly into it!

Now you know why I have never changed my married name back to my dull sounding maiden one (my first night in Ireland my friend Orla's sister Ciara asked me my last name, I told her, and she went, 'Ooooh, well, that's a good Protestant name. But it's hardly yer fault now is it?' I hotly contest the origin of said name - it's SCOTTISH, I insist, NOT English!
