I have a habit of needing to go to the bank on Wednesday mornings. Don't know why but it always happens to be Wednesdays. In this country Wednesday mornings are the day when bank officials get a lie-in. That is, they don't open till ten thirty. But I always happen to forget this and arrive there by 9:30 looking in the window like the little match girl with a "let me in" face. So what happens then is I try to kill time by wandering around Penneys (cheap clothing shop) for an hour, thinking that things cost nothing in Penneys therefore I won't spend much. Yeah right.
An hour later I have bought numerous pairs of pyjamas, knickers, socks and a couple of tops and my purse is between fifty and a hundred euro lighter. Maybe the bank is in cahoots (what a word!) with Penneys and they have this all planned. I actually think Penneys marketing people are very clever cos I'd never go into Brown Thomas and drop a hundred lids on a whim but I do it with cheap stuff all the time!
Fools and their cash are easily seperated.
