What does "bump for sub" mean?

post #2372 of 2416
Good question.

it is a post intended to result in a subscription to the thread (so you get alerted to any updates).

Simultaneously bumps the thread to the top of the forum queue to make it visible to any others (helps revive slowing threads), and subscribes me to any future updates.

Incidentally, Steed prices are inclusive of fabric, right?

Is there an up charge for Lumbs golden bale or dormeuil tonik, and if so, how much?

Nothing serious here, but I thought this was amusing. A blog post from Steed

So I Was In McDonalds...

In New York, on Steed’s recent trip to the States, I found myself in McDonalds. (I know, I know, everyone back home thinks its fancy restaurants and steak all the way) but Dad and I had back to back appointments all day and feeling the hunger pains and not having had breakfast, decided to get a cheeseburger from McDonalds, which is two minutes from the Kimberly Hotel and would enable me to get there and back & fed before the next customer was due.

So there I was, waiting to fill my cup with Coke, (I mention this because one of their executives may be reading this & might be looking for new talent) when a young lad, 19/20, says,

“Hey man, I love your suit”

“Wait a minute, did you make that?”

“What’s your name?”

“Matthew”,

“Matthew DeBoise, from Steed tailors?”

“Yes”

“You’re famous”!.

At which point, the whole of McDonalds turned round and was looking, even the traffic cop, that was there said, “oh yeah, it is him”! (I’m totally convinced he had no idea who I was or had heard of Steed though, but guessed he should know who I was due to the fuss that was being made).

So the moral of the story is, don’t underestimate the power of social media or a McDonalds Cheeseburger.

I had a weird conversation with some guy at a bar a few months ago. He came up to me and said, hey man I think I might have met you a long time ago, you made the suit you're wearing right? I was like, um, no. He said I look like somebody he met who made his own suits. He then asked me what I did for a living and immediately became disinterested... frown.gif

Honest to God, for a while, I used to think PB worked as a hairdresser.

That would actually be more interesting to most people than my real job.

Are you sure about this? If so, it's a great deal.
