Whoo-hoo, Free Stuff !!

A colleague send me this message on Friday.

'...there is a "Clearance" table in our South-Western store for all the old stock Jock has been finding in the store... a customer said to him
"oh this is great that you have all this free stuff"
Jock:"no its on clearance"
Customer: "yes that's right clearance, for free"
Jock: "no clearance doesn't mean free, you still have to pay for it"
Customer: "oh i thought clearance was free"
Jock: "no it's spelt differently"

Good on you Jock, sometimes I wish I had the audacity to say similar things, instead I would have patiently explained to the customer that nothing is free. I know I live up north in Hicksville, but come-on where in Australia does Clearance = Free, especially when you are in a shop?

  1. I thought I lived in Hicksville??

    I wonder if that customer does the same thing when Myer is having their annual clearance.


I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just to say "Hi, I stopped by for a read today"
