a horrible, horrible place.
are there any worse shops?
Is this the worst case of one-upmanship ever seen in retail?
I got some toblerone in Poundland.
I can't stand H&M. So good in theory but so much like a jumble sale in reality, and smells a bit funky too.
Argos is alright, so long as it isn't really busy...actually, the same could maybe be said for woolies
but it's close.
You're a liability.
it's an untidy nightmare!
bargains! You have to be in the right mood to appreciate it.
It calms me down. And I can go straight to my size and see what they have. it's brilliant. And practical.
but everyone loves me, especially YOU!!
Most chain coffee shops
You go there often?
I have to get my kicks somewhere.
And the fact that people don't realise that Lidl is pronounced the way that you don't like.
THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SAY!
And if that's the best lasagne you've ever eaten, I now cordially invite you to my house after, or before, Zonino 2, where I will you cook you my lasagne, which is about a ZILLION times better.
to withdraw his appalling slur on, particularly lidl.
it's staffed by pretty german girls. enough said.
Seriously, only students go there.
Not even three quid! I know I should have been able to do this for myself, but this is the 21st century. This generation of man can't do anything
What happened to all the bikes in Halfords? I swear it used to have shit loads lined up at the back
That's not even slightly practical
so warm and cosy and coffeey and smelling (of globalisation). Mmmm.
and the bloke serving me recognised from my voice that i was from newcastle and he stamped my loyalty card 4 times and said 'being from the north east is like being in a shit version of the freemasons, isn't it?'
chain coffee shops rock.
coffee = urghybleurghyugh
I feel i love you a little bit more.
is wrong with you?!
i reserved what i wanted online so i knew they had it, went in, queued for 40 mins. and did they have the item?
are getting harder and harder to please...
I should buy some of their ill-fitting shoddy clothes.
all of the above than B&Q or Homebase. They are truly the most boring shops of all time.
in bury called 'poundco.com' which is the name of the actual physical shop not a website which is stupid enough, but there isn't even a website.
Purely because of that coked-up bitch Katona
fucking Iceland. Also, Marks & Spencer Simply Food. It's not a fucking supermarket! It just sells own brand ready-meals!
is lovely compared to the one in Kentish Town.
i hate you.
iceland food is amazing. it's absolutely terrible for you but TASTES SO GOOD.
well, some of it.
i'd addicted to some of their pizza things, i forget what they call them 'cause i haven't had them since before i went away but they're SO GOOD.
but the people, staff and stores are vile beyond belief.
New Look or even Next.
I'm not even a girl and even I know that bargain central for that almost-fashionable look.
And Next is funny. It's 4am! Let's queue for the sale!
are hideous and shit in Next. New Look is always full of rude chavs.
during their sale 2 years ago.
i had to be there at 5.30 am to work on the 2nd january
and people were already SHOPPING.
makes you wonder...
I still fell too young for Next.
Pet superstores that don't even have any pets in them.
in Hammersmith is like a scene out of Dawn Of The Dead when people are clamouring to get stuff to survive. And 8 year olds throwing packs of batteries at the staff.
except they actually ARE zombies.
which is a shame cos sometimes you need to go there
last week, bent all my glasses and bruised my wrist. No one helped but this customer did and when they relieased I was hurt, they popped out of no where and said 'oh, you could have sued us!'
i am planning to, for an X Box 360 for mr Kayleia
there is no connection to your number coming up on the screen and your stuff being ready they just make you wait 10 minutes and assume
I got a Christmas job in Argos. I worked there for 3 Saturdays and quit. It was pure evil. They made me work in the store room and carry heavy TVs and Furniture and made me wear a skirt. If you weren't quick enough the floor manager threatened you with your P45.
And they made me tuck my shirt in.
when you were working in the store room?
It may have changed now, but back then I had to wear a skirt and shirt just in case they got short staffed on collection. I'd go home covered in dust and crap with ladders in my tights, oh and speaking of ladders, I had to climb them in my skirt to get stuff off the top shelves.
it for having the stupidity to work for Argos in the first place.
one of the shops down the road from me where they shout "THIS IS NOT A LIBRARY" at you if you dare to hold a magazine for more than 10 seconds without purchasing it.
So you're out and about and say to yourself 'lets stop for a coffee'.
Stop for a coffee???
I just don't get it.
Its probably because I don't like coffee. I do like sitting down tho :o)
what's the point in that?
Where I can walk in on my own and safely say there is always someone in there that I know and can have a drink and chat with. Even though they do have a coffee machine in the establishment a beer is usually the drink of choice as it is with most of the other locals. Buy a few rounds, put the world to rights and all that. I fear that that these charming pubs are becoming slightly of the England past.
they don't care if you sit there and read the whole book.
Does an amazing Argos sketch. "The laminated book of dreams"
laminated to "catch the tears of joy"
from the ALWAYS there icecream van. Cheers me up.
I think part of the awfulness of these is that it's the place grown ups go to, to buy rubbish things like shower mats, grouting or multiplugs. youthful exuberance is OVER
at ours. And icecream.
