An béal bocht
These Hibernian landlords, these English cunts* polite like an Irishman, greedy as an Anglo-Norman overlord.
If you want the least bit of maintenance, you get An béal bocht "the poor mouth." But when it's your money? Suddenly business is business.
* The word "cunt," in European English, is not a misogynistic term. It's just a way of refering to someone a bloke in an insulting way.
It is, to paraphrase the great George Carlin, "a synonym for 'fellow'" but derogatory.
It's vulgar, but not obscene and not misogynistic.
