Yesterday I decided or better we; that is er indoors my nearest and dearest and myself to venture forth for some retail therapy and escape from this sedentary life of blogging.
We had stacks of time to meander around and compare prices around the super market. left without purchasing anything which had my wife, a black belt in shopping agitated. We then toddled off to the veggie shop owned by a Lebanese Christian bloke whose assistant an aged pommie moron never short of dirty yarn was pissed off when I told him straight that it was time to get this business in order as the quality was degenerating as well as the prices exorbitant.
Well armed with a mind full of local rip offs we did a tour of the Aldi Shopping complex in Tuggerah(NSW OZ), Where my wife discovered the secrets of economical shopping where it is estimated a $100-00 cartful cost 25 bucks less than the traditional shopping outlets.
The veggie market was again a winner, Broccoli at 99cents a kilo so were BR/sprouts, pink lady apples, and zucchinis and a full bunch of celery 99cents. I estimated a saving of around 60% compared to our locals.
We then indulged in lunch at maccas on the highway. large fries, cheeseburger and a orange drink each cost $4 -00 all up $8 -00 bucks. our local greasy spoon cafe charges double that. Leaving the rest room at maccas a guy who owes me 50 bucks came in and shot into one of the cubicles when he saw me, "Crikey am I that frightening", the guy is a lesser defaulter I have already written off.
Then we visited 'Dan Murphy's' the discount grog shop that is larger than central station, we bought six bottles of famous grouse scotch at $23-99 a bot and after a little haggling received six free gifts of one Tee and a golf ball, the geezer in front got the one Tee and a golf ball for one bottle. So I demanded six or I would check one bottle at a time.
Today the wife checked her shopping list and discovered an anomaly on the check out at Aldi stores, this only amounted to about $6-00. A letter is already in the post to the store manager, together with a copy of the checkout bill.
This will be the final post for this week as all this sitting parked on a chair
is making my legs go wonky and it's important I leave our club premises behaving in a sober manner-after a skinful tomorrow night.
Question: What is a Wonky?. Answer on Sunday. ta for now vest.
Answer: A three legged Donkey.
