Ear Trumpets - again !
Supermarkets are probably crooks
Tesco deliver to our house in the wilds, 330ml cans of Diet Coke are 49p ea this week.
At Sainsbury (but I have to carry them) an 8 pack is £3.85 and the sign says BOGOF, ie about 24p per can
No limit per customer so wifey bought ten yesterday and I bought 20 more today.
Driving home I realised that I have been living in the same house for over 30 years and drink about 5 cans a day.
This means I have consumed some 50,000 cans of coke since 1980 !
I collect ear trumpets,
there has been a glut of them on Ebay, so I have been buying.
I bought one which seemed a bit iffy and when it arrived it clearly wasn't what the seller said.
I complained to Ebay and emailed the seller.
After a week I left negative feedback.
Seller appears and refunds me in full, Ebay conspicuous by it's lack of response.
CAVEAT EMPTOR I have started a critique of Ebay trumpet adverts
Wifey and girlfriend
went to St Petersburg, Russia and are safely home, but both managed to get mugged on different occasions.
