While we adjust to the news that the blog is probably bloggered again...can I relate a tale from last week?
Went to a garage to get a fizzy drink and a sandwich. Took them to the counter and was asked to grab a bag of cheesy quavers too. I said I didn't really want them. The guy on the till insisted that the whole thing would be cheaper if I let him scan the quaver barcode.
I am familiar with the meal deal thing - that somehow you pay less for the two items you want by pretending to buy a third. But when I said, "look I don't like quavers...why not ring them up and I can put them back so someone else can have them?" he got quite shirty.
In the end I had to "buy" them, and then ask friends if they wanted them. They didn't.
Am I going mad?
