They say that you get what you pay for. On a recent experience, this is certainly the case when it comes to buying products from the pound shop.

On Saturday I bought a cup to hold my coffee at work. It is one of those fancy travel mugs with the rubber lid you drink from. It is supposed to keep your drink warm, while making you look hip and like a London business-type at the same time. The cup I purchased did keep my drink warm, but when I tried to drink from it, spilt coffee all over my desk. This wasn’t just a few drips, it went everywhere. Have you ever seen a farmyard animal urinating? Think of the leakage on that scale.

Lesson of the day: You can’t put anything fancy or workable from a shop where everything is a pound… although I did buy 3 DVDs for a quid each, including Deep Blue Sea and Open Water – and before you ask, these do work and are apparently not pirate copies.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
