Gosh am I cross! Which is not in my vocab, usually. Part 1 the Lions got beaten by 1 point this a.m. Which was about the highlight of my day.
I got two £10.00 vouchers for 'Modelzone' off my lads (14 & 10 yo) bought on 16th inst. I went to retrieve them today. Selected a few tools and some Zevesda heavy weapons packs total £17.00. Went to the checkout and said to the MANAGER, "Don't worry about the 3 quid owing, I know it's difficult to sort out vouchers."
He says, "thank you sir, that'll be £7."
"£7, says I, for why?"
"Well sir," says he, "we've gone into administration on 26th and we're only honouring 50% of vouchers."
"So," says I, " we have to pay 30 quid for items worth 17?" (£20 vouchers + £3 waiver and £7 extra for the goods!)
"Hmm yes," says he, "never thought of it like that. Sorry."
Selling vouchers 10 days before going into receivership is just straight corruption! I'm not a vindictive person but my two lads paid out their pocket money in good faith to CORRUPT business people. Someone knew this was due and did nothing and allowed their staff to basically steal money from patrons of their store. MTRIH!
PS: I'm not blaming the staff. They're as much victims. Not being told by the 'head sheds' they're the real criminals!!
Sorry, spleen vented.
Catch you soon.
