Show Me The Money

Behind the barrier at Queen Street Station


In their wisdom, National Rail has positioned both of their cash machines, the only two in Glasgow Queen Street train station, after the bloody ticket barriers.

Why do they think people need cash after they have had to buy their ticket, for a £4.50 miniature box of Pringles?  Surely the punters who need the cash machines lie on the other side of the barriers where money is actually needed to purchase a ticket!


Move the f***ing cash machines to the correct side of the station!


Awaiting reply. All National Rail enquiries can do is show a picture of said useless cash machines!

Skelptarse definitely required!

  • I still think Lord Forsyth deserves it more, but I can’t find any way of slapping him on these pages. I’ll withhold the full 5-slap till such time as he appears. Meanwhile a good old 4-slap for National Rail.

    • Tony,

      Why not submit your own post on Lord Forsyth via the Submit Yours page on here? I’d love to publish it for you :) Thanks for the 4-slap for National Rail ;)

      • Skelpy,
        That’s a fine idea. I had no idea skelping here was so democratic. I’ll just get my skelping mitt. Expect to hear from me soon.

        • I’m technically Dundonian and therefore any skelping would be applied to an ‘erse’. Would this disqualify my contribution?

  • Not National Rails fault, try blaming ScotRail instead, they run the station.

    • Since there is so many fields of spalceities that I have a choice of, I still really can’t choose one. So I am going base on my personal experiences. My original goal back in high school and maybe even before that, was to work in a Neonatal ICU! I had a brother that passed before he had his first birthday from heart complications, and that year I spent a lot of time at hospitals with my parents. My goal the first couple of years was to work with babies just like him. That was until I had my own children, I would of still loved to have worked in that career field but the heart ache I would most likely endure when one of those babies did not make it home. I could not have handled!On to more positive experiences, I have worked with the elderly and Geriatrics interests me very much. Being surrounded with people that have lived a fulfilled life is so much more rewarding. Even though at times it is the ending stages of their lives, and it is sad when someone does pass. It’s less of a heartache to know that most of the time they are ready to move on. They are still very dependent on you and when you are able to help them with their needs that’s the most rewarding of all, plus you form a special relationship with the patients and their families.

  • When they installed the barriers, they had the barriers (near whsmith) where you could go to the machines easily. I suspect however that whsmith complained as they hampered access to the shop. also in their previous position, when those folks from edinburgh and such arrived it caused a bit’o'a’stramash….

    Definately worth a well-skelpt arse,… not to mention the fact that the ticket machines never accept creased notes, visa electron cards, and there are only two that accept cash for the lower level trains,….

    get a grip scotrail,….

    • The Concordia Lutheran Church Men’s Club will once again be selling Christmas trees and wrahets this year. The tree lot is located at the Church-School, 4245 Lake Avenue. Christmas tree sales will begin on Friday, November 23rd. The lot will be open 12:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily, except Saturday mornings, when it opens at 9:00 a.m. The proceeds from this fund raiser are used to support various projects and functions of the Concordia Church and school. A selection can be made from Scotch Pine, White Pine, Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir, and Blue Spruce. These trees were just cut a couple of weeks ago. Please come see how fresh they are. Decorated and undecorated wrahets are also available. Your patronage would be greatly appreciated.

  • I not to mention my buddies have been reviewing the good ideas located on the blog and so all of the sudden I got a terrible feeling I had not thanked the site owner for those tips. These guys are actually consequently thrilled to read them and already have truly been loving these things. Thank you for truly being simply considerate as well as for getting these kinds of superior things millions of individuals are really desperate to discover. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

What is Skelpt Arse?

To use a splendid bit of sadly, now seldom-used Scottish vernacular, whose 'arse' definitely needs 'skelpt'?

Who or what has been letting you down, letting our magnificent country down or who generally needs brought into line. Politicians? Overly politically-correct-mandarins? Jobsworth civil-servants? Service industry specialists who've not been servicing? You tell us!

We've got a sliding scale of 'skelpitness' from a light smack or a pure, red, stinger? You decide!
