Default Radio adverts lying again.

That Sharaf DG one about "if we don't have it, you get it free" has been shown to be total carp. It only applies to certain products according to today's 7 Days. The logic was all wrong anyway. How can they something if they don't have it?

I thought they meant if they don't have it they will source it and you get it free - that was the implication.

No chance of that happening eh...to think there is a body which actually monitors advertising standards here, seriously!

I knew they meant that, W10, but I'm sure that it would have confused simpler souls out there.

As it was, there was a huge crowd of people at the Times Square mall at the weekend, waiting for the new Sharaf to be opened. The strange thing was that they kept all the subcontinental men waiting in a throng outside and let everyone else in.

I sent the wife in for some sky hooks and a long stand. She wasn't happy when she eventually came out.
