Meeting Milti

Postby supporttheunderdog » Mon Mar 05, 2018 11:04 am

Spent a very pleasant hour or so with my near neighbour, Milti. As far as I can see is, what you see is what you get, in my view an affable gent and a real pleasure to finally meet him in person.

I agree, and hope to make it an annual event. I’m going to grow a nice beard, just for the occasion. :o :D :wink:

Is there anybody on the forum Milti hasn’t met? Apart from the obvious that is. :lol:

It was indeed a pleasure to have met STU, more so since it was an unexpected meet.
I look forward to meet you and LR as well as many that I met previously for a good BBQ in the near future. Beards will be ...welcomed but there will be a tiny ...penalty, .....
Have a great day and dont forget to ....shave !!

And a gentleman. We met a couple of times in UK in 2010 with Bill C (Bill where are you?). I will try and meet up with him next time in Cyprus and buy him a glass of red. :D

Listening to you lot is like watching a B&W movie… I imagine you all meeting up with umbrellas, bowler hats, and cigars. :? :lol:

I have yet to meet anyone from the forum that I did not like. So I think I shall resist temptation to accept a ....fortcoming invite from my old .....mate GR or indeed from anyone that I have thus far considered a real Plonker. As is my charachter I meet and make friends easy since by nature does not contain bullshit. I refuse to refer to anyone as Kirios so and so and I ask that they do not refer to me as kirios. Plural usage is not in my vocabulary. Only the Greeks and Cypriots address others in plural. Met the mayor of
Ayios Athanasis a few days ago, my brother taught one of his children when teaching at American Academy. I called him by his first name and in singular . We got on well.

And the Turks and the French and many many others...
In fact English might be among the exceptions.

I only use plural if somebody is significantly older than me. I don't mind when others talk to me in plural for professional reasons... and I reply in a similar manner (although we usually soon agree to just use first names), but when some years ago some teenagers called me "Kirie" I didn't like it at all... it made me feel old :(

I know the feeling!

Mind you it was worse when someone offered me their seat on the underground in London, that really made me feel old!
