Tinson2’s Work Experience problems may be solved.
Our wonderful Justice Minister Dermot Ahern (no, I didn’t slag him off when he made all off-licences close at 10pm, or when he said that banks wouldn’t be robbed as often if we didn’t want them to carry money. Well, maybe just a bit) is bringing in the Test Purchasing of Alcohol Scheme. This scheme will allow the Gardaí to employ 15-17 year olds to enter licensed premises and attempt to buy alcohol.
I hope Tinson2 applies. I’d feel such pride if he got the job, like George H Bush must have felt when George W was elected President, or like Apollo must have felt when Apollo 11 flew to the moon.
It’s the pride of one’s son carrying on in one’s footsteps. For I too have attempted to purchase alcohol when I was under 18.
And I wasn’t even getting paid.
