    Three for a tenner? Really?

    people are idiots, a woman came in " how much for 3 Yale's", I'm £3.95 so I says £11.85, so with a smirk on her face she says "Asda 3 for a tenner." I said "so you're holding a multi national, multi billion pound company's cheap deal over my head for £1.85 when this shop is my only source of income"? "Well I never thought about it like that" They're £11.85 for three, do you want them or not?" "OK, here's £12.00 I'll go and wait out in my car" I cut the keys, waved at her to come in and she waved me to come out to the car, "here's your keys and here's your 15p change" "just keep the change" "No, take it, nice car by the way", (brand spanking new Audi TT £30K+ probably) "oh yes it's very nice" "and you tried to haggle with me for £1.85, see ya...!!" I have seen her several times since with shoes and keys, she admits that she never gave it a milliseconds thought that small shops should be more expensive than big shops but now shops in the high street as much as she can... I blame that wee mockney #### Dominic Littlewood, I saw him on TV recently telling everyone High Street shops are ripping you off and you should haggle for everything, he even boasted about haggling over a bottle of ketchup and was proud as punch he got 20p off of it claiming everyone was having a great time while he haggled, try that in my shop you dick. What a tosser...

    society of master shoe repairers

    Good morning gentlemen. ( and ladies) Some of you will perhaps remember me from my time in the trade. I have agreed, during a senior momentary lapse of concentration, to act as temporary secretary for SOMSR. At present I'm working my way through the backlog of paperwork and hopefully will have that under control very shortly. i will try, with the help of the Chairman and others, to deliver a more involved society. We value the historic position of SOMSR and hope to make it a more attractive and useful society to be a member of. I am not an expert on social media so please be patient whilst I work out how to get that side of things back on track As soon as I can I will provide my personal contact details and if anyone wishes to get in touch I will be delighted to speak with them. Regards Robin Healy

    Hell of an outlay Rick when Graham will get them to you next day. I wouldn't even think about investing in anything now at my age. I struggled with myself to buy a new hole punch last week......

    Must of misheard.

    Customer ( either foreign or possibly a speech impediment.) came in on Friday. I could of swore he asked " have you got any bollocks?" "Yes I've got a lovely pair of bollocks, thanks for asking!" I replied, being honest. "No, wollocks!" I sold him a wallet.

    Glasses, Suing the forum

    I had to start wearing glasses today, I'm suing the forum for eye strain in the early days. On the plus side I've realised today my inability to thread a needle the past 12 months, is not down to shaking hands but wonky eyes.

    Single Use Plastic

    The environment is such an important issue, I'm so glad no one devalued this thread by saying something like... " If you think an image of a "plastic" whale is distressing, an image of a "sperm" whale would be just disgusting."

    Is it that they failed to show an ethnically diverse, gender fluid police force?

    I always work on the principle if you cannot find a genuine blank or Silca/Jma/Keyline/HD equivalent then whatever fits and works is the correct blank.

    Three for a tenner? Really?

    Everyone will moan when there're no towns with independents to shop in anymore and only massive supermarkets/out of town retail parks.
