    I flirted with car sales many moons ago and tbh only lasted a few months as I definitely wasn't cut out for it. I remember in a sales meeting the sales manager said along the following lines to us ...

    'Get them to sign, just get them to sign. If they can't afford it that's not your problem, that's their problem, convince them they 'can' afford it. Numbers numbers NUMBERS guys!!!'

    It wasn't unusual to see a car going out only to see it return on the back of a transporter x months later ... repossessed.

    MM: "guys, this is the 'won't last the hour' time" we are past meltdown and more than 80% of the stock has now gone"

    Me watching the repeat show 'hmmmm, let me check the website' ….oh, the drone is still available and I can order up to 3 if I want

    Gollum can't resist his meltdown sloblocks can he?

    Another great moment as well with shouty Dire once again proclaiming the amazing stability of the cheapo drone. Lets go of it and it immediately drifts about 6 feet away from him. He keeps a straight face saying how amazing the stability is. Why does it never drift into his gob?

    I bought the same drone as the one Mire was selling this weekend from the internet last year for around 30, so the give away price of 50on Ideal was from being a bargain.

    I like the way Mire says if the wind catches the drone it maintains it's altitude. This may be true, but in a strong gust, it may maintain it's altitude, but that won't prevent it from being blown away as it's as light as a feather.

    While watching dear old Pete and Kevski a couple of nights ago, the deal of the day was a diver's watch with a simple printed horrible green colour dial which was a limited edition of 50 and priced at a whopping 700. In the last hour of the one day deal, Pete announced that there were only 7 left, so you must go to the phones. Here we are a couple of days later and they are still on the web site, now at 1000.
    So they couldn't sell a mere 50 in 24 hours at 700. Not really surprising given the price for a watch with a printed dial. There comes a point where even the most eager Ideal watch buyers won't be taken!

    On Saturday during the 7pm watch show, Pete & Kevski were selling those Traser watches with the bright dial markings, and Kevski was saying that Traser "hadn't thought of TV shopping"..."and they hadn't seen it done in the professional finished way that we do it here"

    See it at 31:00 here: https://www.idealworld.tv/gb/shows/c...047?channel=IW

    Of course this is from a shopping TV channel employing a presenter who kept mispronouncing Traser as 'Trasar', and later on forgot the name of the Traser owner's partner of whom he referred to as "the other lady"

    Mr Mason was prenting a hair removal show last night with some gizmo or other.
    The hairy lady demonstrating it expained how she has tried everything in the world bar a blow lamp and sandpaper and the whhoped with delight when she found the device she was showing us.
    She said that she felt " Like Gollum from the rings my precious ".
    oops

    Tonight they even had a decent phone to sell - the Sony Xperia XZ2 - which made a change from the STK landfill they often feature, so it was no surprise that Volauvent and his poorly-packed suitcase were firmly left at home this time. However the 499.99 price may well be 50 cheaper than Argos and the Carphone Warehouse but there are other even more modern smartphones available for the same price, though of course the Flexi-pay option is the real selling point here for potential buyers.

    just watched a bit of the Sony phone expert. She said it records in 'high definition range'. Incorrect, it's 'high dynamic range'. I don't know where they find their so called experts!

    Yes I saw that and thought, WTF? Also, who is this Lesley G. I don't trust people with only letters as surnames. Well except Mr T. I pity the fool who doesn't trust Mr T.



    She says she has 10 years experience and Mike slaphead pretended he had already heard of her. I take it she is the new Janice?
