SURFING the net....
I feel Google needs a kick up the backside!
I'M all for healthy competition, especially where small businesses are concerned, but when it's bare faced greed from global multi million pound profit companies my blood starts to boil!
I GO through walking boots faster than Cornwall council uses its budget, and worked out that I was spending an average of £200 a year on them. Used daily, minimum 5 miles, through fields, muck, mud, muck, streams, muck, rocks, muck, slippery stone styles and muck, I'd have been drier wearing flip flops at times!
SO, time to invest in sturdy boots that should last me. Himself bought me a leather pair for £100+. I wore them once as it felt like I was walking in concrete blocks ( unless himself was planning on pushing me off a cliff 🤔) so back they went.
I THEN saw the perfect pair online! £125. Calf length. Leather. Shock absorbing, lightweight and most importantly, ANTI SLIP! Oooo I'll pop them on his card and explain later how he saved me from a fall...
I PUT them into my virtual basket and go to checkout. .😲 **** Expletives are here by the ton**** ******* 😱😱😱they've suddenly increased to £599!!!!!!!!!! **** More expletives!!😱 THINKING I may have seen it wrong, I asked himself to check that it wasn't £59.90 .. nope, definitely £bleed-you-dry!😮 SO himself went online, googled same boots and they come up £75!!! Bargain! Buy them Honey, quick! Again, he gets to checkout and they've increased to £400!!
SO WRONG on so many levels!! So I engaged my brain, when I’d washed my potty mouth out with soap!
I signed OUT of Google. I searched same boots. Up they come at £128 free p&p. HOLDING my breath, I quickly went to checkout, as a blue face isn't flattering, and they are at £125 free p&p! So I bought them- actually, himself bought them for me but he doesn't know that yet.. HE does now reading this!
HOPEFULLY they'll last me a few years.
THEY'RE certainly the best boots I've ever had!
I OFTEN wonder if the £599 pair were encased in platinum, and whether anyone actually paid that for a pair of boots!?🤔
Und der Himmel verdunkelte sich als der oder die Concorde Liner sich neben uns stellte 😲😲😲 welch ein Monstrum! Locker 2m länger als wir (wir haben 7,5m) und dann noch ein Anhänger 🚚🛳️ es ist augenblicklich ziemlich dunkel geworden bei uns 🌄
