Funny Ryanair situation for its President..Low cost flyers ..ENJOY!

Jump to last reply

I am sharing a very funny Ryanair situation I received from a friend:

Spare a thought for Michael O’Leary, Chief Executive of 'Ryanair'.......

Arriving in a hotel in Dublin, he went to the bar and asked for a pint of draught Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be one Euro please, Mr. O’Leary."

Somewhat taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money. "Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "But you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll need one of ours. That will be another 3 euro."

O'Leary grimaced, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat. "Oh, so you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That's another 2 euro. - Oh, and actually, I see that you didn't pre-book the seat, so in fact it will be another 4 Euro."

O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up. "I see that you want to bring that laptop with you" added the barman. "And since that wasn't pre-booked either, that will be another 3 euro."

O'Leary was so annoyed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled, "This is a rip-off, I want to speak to the manager".

"You can only contact him by email", said the barman. "And by the way, that will be 2 euro for use of the counter. And unless you are going to wash the glass yourself, that will be another 3 Euro. And it would be another 3 Euro to use the washroom"
