They're in a bridal shop.

'Can I get a drink?'

'Go to the petrol station'.

OMG shock

What a shower of shite!

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 06-Jan-16 20:24:31

I feel quite sorry for them.

ChessieFL Wed 06-Jan-16 20:24:53

They clearly haven't got a clue!

RubyWoooo Wed 06-Jan-16 20:29:45

I'm feeling a lot of pity for them too. Seems like Mary is fighting a losing battle.

And her transvestite comment...CRIIIIIIIIIIIINGE

£72,000 in dresses they can't sell! Nightmare. Love the idea of taking the OTT stuff to the trans-event.

RubyWoooo Wed 06-Jan-16 20:31:08

'These evening dresses are too much even for cross dressers'

grin

It is an interesting episode

prettywhiteguitar Wed 06-Jan-16 20:35:23

I totally disagree about him not cross dressing in the shop !

RubyWoooo Wed 06-Jan-16 20:40:26

The highlight for me so far is the walkie talkie in the bridal shop

RubyWoooo Wed 06-Jan-16 20:45:06

If I'd paid for a ticket on that train and had her serving me I'd be asking for my money back.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 06-Jan-16 20:45:11

Wow that train is gorgeous

Madbengalmum Wed 06-Jan-16 20:46:41

My god, they are so unprofessional.
Haircuts and dental consults needed all round!

muddiboots Wed 06-Jan-16 20:47:40

Made me feel really uncomfortable and anxious for those train customers

Pixa Wed 06-Jan-16 20:48:40

I would have struggled to buy my wedding dress from them.

thenightsky Wed 06-Jan-16 20:48:55

Scruffy pair with no clue really. Hopeless case I think.

RubyWoooo Wed 06-Jan-16 20:51:08

Where the fuck did they get £16k from

thenightsky Wed 06-Jan-16 20:51:34

Borrowed it I suppose.

RubyWoooo Wed 06-Jan-16 20:53:42

Ahh that bride is beautiful.

thunderbird69 Wed 06-Jan-16 20:55:45

Just switched over - what a gorgeous dress that girl had on.

TSSDNCOP Wed 06-Jan-16 20:59:23

That was fascinating.

I was only thinking they'd be utterly fucked without Linda and then it came up they'd laid her off.

They've got everything they need...and no business acumen whatsoever.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 06-Jan-16 21:05:28

They laid her off ?! I missed that bit

Homeriliad Wed 06-Jan-16 21:10:02

And re-hired her.

TSSDNCOP Wed 06-Jan-16 21:10:58

It was in the closing credits Ken. I had literally just said to DH "she's too good for them, they'll push her out".

If Linda started up on her own, Janet and wassiname wouldn't last 6 months.

I live nearby, walked past that shop about 3 months ago on route to a friends.... It's getting back to how it was sad
