I hate getting screwed over

| 4 Comments

There is little more that pisses me off than false or misleading advertising. Let me give you an example. Yesterday evening (around 17h00) I find the new promo folder of Carrefour Hypermarkets in my mailbox, and I notice something that interests me : a cupboard of pretty much a nice size that I could use to store my books in my "office". Mind you, this leaflet contains promotions that are valid from 09/02/2005 till the 15th of February.

On the 10th - today - I go to the Hyper Carrefour of Borsbeek and check the complete store for that cupboard, but I can't find it anywhere. Upon verification with someone of the store staff, the answer is quite stunning : "Oh, we're out of those and they won't be coming in anymore". To which I reply "Oh, they're sold out quite fast, wouldn't you say?" and the answer is a sheepish grin. Last time I checked, a store had to have a "reasonable" amount of stock for promotions, and if that stock is sold out in less than 48 hours, I doubt that was the case.

In the mean time I still have no good way of storing my growing collection of books :(

I think I'll have to write myself a little mail to the management, coz right now my conclusion is Hyper Carrefour sucks!

Hey ... a Google search w/ the keywords I entered for my blog ("work, rant, observation, friends, humor, books, reading, lists, office, oxymoron, google, san diego") brought me to your blog. So just thought I'd let you know I was by, and let you know about my blog at http://leefur.blogspirit.com/

You got one of the best URLs I've seen -- good thinking :)

Strange... I do work, rant and observe things, I've got friends (just a few, but good ones), hope I have a sense of humor, read books, and often google for things. I don't live in San Diego though.

I know about the URL, I'm a genius. If only more people would realize it.
