Please tell me that the good old transport caff is not called a truck stop now over there.

Damn. It used to be good to go back for a visit and still see biscuits, fairy cakes, etc instead of cookies, muffins and everything else that used to be so British.

I think you can still safely say Fairy, yes?

Oo now you've done it, young Jill. I could just eat some faggots and chips. Bought some frozen ones when over in the summer. Taste and texture more like meatballs over here. 

 

Nothing like ruining a thread, we've gone from summer hols to transport caff/truck stops to fairy cakes to pouffs to faggots.

I was of the opinion that a truck stop in the UK was one where wagons could park up overnight with facilities for drivers to shower, relax and refresh as well as providing a cafe. This was certainly the case a few years back when I dealt with clients who operated such premises.

Don't go into an overnight truck stop and tell them you want knocking up early.

Fags are ok.  They were just cigarettes when I was a pup.

 

Now they're draped in a rainbow flag
