Daytime Telly Revisited

Oooh, I feel as if I've done something naughty! I take back some of the horrid things I said about daytime telly.

Now and then there is a show about 9am called (I think) "Dom's on the Case" where Dominic Littlewood shows people how to make shopkeepers knock money off their bill. This afternoon we went to buy a rug for the new floor in the hallway: "That'll be £182.65 madam" said the shop man. And I looked him STRAIGHT in the eye and said "Oh surely you mean £180?" And he started to repeat his first figure but did a quick about-face and said that of course he could do that madam! WOW - RESULT! I know it was only £2-something but I have never in my life dared to do such a thing. I floated out of the shop on Cloud 9 I can tell you.
I should have gone for £175.
Just thought I would share this minor triumph with you - a small thing but it made my day!

I always ask for a discount for cash, it works more often than not.

Wow! Glad you spoke up. We have a flea market of sorts here where people sell wares outdoors in the good weather and you always do that when buying something from them, but I've not tried in an acutal store. It pays to try anyway. 'On Ya'-ma
