its been reduced so probably about 65%ish

Can't remember the brand but someone was complaining the other day about packeted soup with a claim on the packet that it contained 30% less salt. When they took it home and compared it with an older packet of the same soup they realised that it contained 30% less of everything. Even the instructions said to add 30% less water. Same price though.

I bought a pair of trousers that were reduced by 50%.
I was absolutely livid when I got them home & found they'd only got 1 leg.
I was in Fletcher's Garden Centre a couple of years ago and a "countrywoman with a sense of entitlement" let the poor lad on the till know that she expected him to take 10% off for her, from the flowers that she was buying.

He had no authority to do this and so demurred, much to her chagrin.

I suggested that the next time she demanded it, he just cut the tops off her flowers.

That reminded me of some characters that we have lost...


From the Viv Stanshall website.

Trouser Testing
Vivian once told me that he and Keith Moon used to make surreal jokes for their own amusement. They would enter high-priced men’s clothes shops asking for a pair of strong trousers. Of course the keen to please sales assistant would find a pair robust trousers such as double elephant cords for them to try out and Moon would take hold of one leg while Vivian took the other. Then in a ferocious tug of war they would rip the trousers into two and throw the ruined pieces onto the floor in disgust and storm out of the shop complaining that the trousers were poor quality and lacked strength.

Now Moon and Viv had a one legged friend who they would keep loitering around outside and after their departure this fellow would hop into the shop, go up to the distraught sales assistant and politely ask for two pairs of one legged trousers.

Driving out to Hixon I followed a BMW 3 series from Newport Road.
I kid you not the use of indicators was supurb,every turn or change of road position was clearly indicated.I know its hard to believe but its true.
I also had a trip to Tesco this morning and parked next to a large BMW that was actually in the centre of the space.
