Blonde girl: “I’d love dat dress, but me legs will look huge in it.”(bare in mind she was about a size 8)
Brunette: “”all ye need is a birre confidence Amy. You don’t want to be payin for yer own drinks all yer life, do ye?”

Strict Dress Code!!!
Two lads from Dublin (dressed in snickers gear!) making a delivery to a Dunnes Stores in Cork . The manager stops them at the back door and tells them they cant come inside without a hi-vis vest on.
“No problem” says the older fella, “Can we just borrow two from the store while we drop the stock off?”
“Ah no” says the manager “that’s only one issue. I cant let yis in dressed like that lads, it’s slacks and black shoes only.”
With that the younger fella comes out with a classic: “Jaysus, we’re not trying to get into a f**king nightclub!”

How to empty a LUAS
On the Luas coming out of town one afternoon during the week. As we got to Blackhorse the driver made an announcement
“Ladies & Gents there are 2 plain clothes ticket inspectors getting on at this stop so could you please have your tickets at hand for convenience thank you.”
When we pulled up to the stop 2 people did get on and about 50 got off and stood on the platform, clearly waiting on the next Luas.
When we pulled away the driver got back on the intercom, laughing and said
“I was only joking, there’s no such thing as a plain clothes ticket inspector, I just wanted to see how many people got on without paying!!”
