Tricky price tags
It seems to me that I will write only a few words today because nothing interesting to write about comes to my mind today… unless I tell you what made me annoyed a few weeks ago. In our town there are several supermarkets. I always go to do the weekly food shopping in one of them because I usually find a wide choice of all kinds of food there that my family likes and the staff are responsive and understanding. So, I went there and I saw that there are lots of bargains. I was happy because I thought that I would save some money if I bought things cheaper than their usual price. Below several goods there were price tags showing the usual and the new price. I did my shopping and I was satisfied until I had a look at the receipt. I noticed that there were no bargains - I bought almost everything at the usual price. I made a complaint. The staff apologised to me and I got back my money. Everybody could say: “All is well that ends well!” But when I went there one week later I noticed that nothing had changed. I bought some items, I realised that I did not get a discount on them. I made a complaint again and I said that I did not want to get back the money but I wanted them to change the price. The staff were not very respectful this time. Do similar things happen in your country?
In the morning Csilla was in town to make some arrangements and on the way home she stopped at her grandmother to bid farewell to her.
We have had several visitors today. Firstly, my father visited us and said goodbye to Csilla. Secondly, Csilla’s two former classmates at high school popped in to chat and give Csilla a hug.
I am going now because I would like to spend this little time with her.
Bye, bye! Have a nice weekend!
