Report from Office Bulgaria ... land of smokers!
l laughed (they dont like that but l did think it was funny) and said So' you've got the tube of whats left ... maybe 2gm, you know what it is and yet you want me to buy a plastic bag for it?? That's insanity!'
Their reply was 'lt's security and the law' . l replied ' Security? .. you mean like the barriers you put up outside the airport so no-one can pickup or drop off? (it's a small airport (Humberside) and had a small area in a 'U' shape that cars and taxis used exclusively for dropping off and picking up).
Drone said ' Yes, that was done because of the Glasgow incident where they tried to ram the airport with a car and blow it up so we did it for security'
I smiled saying 'But they can still drive on the pavement' The drone said 'No they can't. lt's not allowed' ( seems terrorists obey traffic regs )
l gave up and left the drone clown clutching the 2gms of Bonjela to carry on the circus act with the next passenger. Note ... to date, the security circus has not caught one terrorist ... nor any elephants, tigers or anything else.
Regarding the airport shop selling duty free cigarettes as duty paid cigarettes ... l've had no reply from them. The company is called Travel Retail Distribution and is a subsidary of Heinemann. l'm still amazed by this as they are doing it right under the noses of Bulgarian Customs who actively target Brit passengers on what they can or not take out of Bulgaria. Perhaps this company thinks their problem has gone way because l left. Oh dear, l've got news for them ... l'm coming back very shortly. l'll check in with my luggage and no doubt attract attention from Bulgarian Customes because 'l'm over the limit' on what they say l can take out. Then the fun will start!
lt's going to be interesting to say the least. l shall try to record it.
l'll leave you now. Regards from 'the office' Yes, they are my feet. :) in the pic
