to remove all the toys from the playarea in the Restaurant, and replace it with a bloody flatscreen telly and beanbags for the children

I demanded to see the manager, and was fobbed off with the following statement - "because ELC isn't here anymore, we can't afford to replace the toys" WDF!!!!!!

Little Lapin, you might be interested in this as it's the Southsea branch

Well you don't HAVE to spend your time in there! Take them to the library instead.

FYI my children are school age, and i was actually complaining on behalf of some other parents who were so scared to say anything!

Foofi, presumably the library does not provide lunch however?! These toys were in the restaurant area of Debenhams!

i know - i was on the sea cat from the IOW turning green as you do - when i saw loads of big grey war ships with big guns n elicopters n everything. to far away to ogle see anyone in uniform.

but i always stifle a giggle when i see the sailor outfits walking past the office where i sometimes work

i mean - proper sailor outfits. dont know what i was expecting
