You could call it rampant consumerism or you could say what is the point of going to work if you can't buy something you want?
The lass in our local Chapel Street Retravision did not have the model that we had selected after doing a little research online. Although it was in the Retravision catalogue, she refused to stock as she reckons it is ugly. This one is certainly nicer, but $19 more, even after beating her down $11.
I am not sure if it goes for all Retravision stores, but I can never beat our local on price. Plus I had to make an executive decision without R there. No problems she said, he can come down and scream at me if he does not like it. Everybody does. We know her well enough to stop and have a chat if we see her in the street. Useful to cultivate the owner's daughter.
It is not Alessi, not even Russell Hobbs but good old Aussie? Sunbeam. Looks ok yes?
