Looking at the past few weeks, or is it years?…it does not take a genius to figure out the obvious…the complete wrong person is holding the purse at the Sharks.
Now, it’s also common knowledge that women are the best shoppers, why in the hell do they then still employ a man in this department store???
Let’s take a look at a few shopping pointers:
- If it’s “too good to be true”…it normally IS.
- A “bargain” hardly ever lasts long…inferior quality or nobody wanting the item is normally what the resulted in “a bargain”
- Goedkoop koop is duurkoop – but, and it’s a BIG BUT…an expensive price tag does not necessarily means its quality
- Be VERY careful of secondhand dealers
Let’s take a look at a few examples:
If you buy a secondhand Michalak Maseratti….chances are good that the first owners drove the living daylights out of it…it’s plain simple common sense…NOT?
A fairly newish Hernandez Hyundai might leave you with serious engine problems, and no official spare parts available…..stuffed! End of story.
If the Name says Goode, it might be potentially bad. I mean a Hoover does not always suck, does it?
A good principle when shopping might be to be proudly South African and buy local, but that might also limit your selection – so if you want to be a professional shopper – keep ALL options open:
Lamborghini Lambie would be on my shopping list or in this case I’ll make absolutely sure he stays in my garage – right at the BACK in fact. Dodge Viper Daniel is not only a looker and a powerful machine, but I am sure will leave you with many miles of driving pleasure.
Bad price negotiations might let you leave the shop empty handed – then you miss out on a Butch Benz, the car of the world for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 (Citroen Centre -by the dealers own claims – not mine). You might also stand to lose a few power machines from your garage…a possible John Deere Smit for instance.
After-shopping care is of the utmost importance. You do NOT through a minx coat in a washing machine, now do you?? Or let your price possession be driven for hours on end without a wash and service. On the other hand – if you have made a mistake with a little shopping item, you can dispose of them or pawn them…like a Rory Fiat Uno, Strauss Smart car, a Monty Mazda (they are exactly like a Ford anyway).
I trust that this little extract from my best-seller, might get you to add a few pointers of your own and maybe some good examples of what might be worth shopping for or what might get disposed of. I am very close to the perfect shopper, but one learn something new everyday.Tweet
