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???:roll:

Let’s take a look at a few shopping pointers:

  1. If it’s “too good to be true”…it normally IS.
  2. A “bargain” hardly ever lasts long…inferior quality or nobody wanting the item is normally what the resulted in “a bargain”
  3. Goedkoop koop is duurkoop – but, and it’s a BIG BUT…an expensive price tag does not necessarily means its quality
  4. 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?:lol:

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).:razz:

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.;-)

    Rory Fiat Uno, not so sure about that one. Although I wouldve held on to my Frans ‘Subaru’ Steyn, always good on any terrain.

  • No you don’t throw a mink coat in the washing machine. It is preferable to leave the coats on the mink’s themselves.

  • Rocket has more BMT in his little finger than the rest of the Sharks team combined. I can forgive a lot of his other sins to make up for that

  • I disagree Michalak was a bad buy. Sure he didnt compete much in the super 14, but he was an integral member of the sharks side that won their first trophy since 1996. He also made THAT ankle tap on Habana that preserved a sharks lead in the 2008 CC final. He came, he saw, he conquered, he ran away. Still, the sharks got bang for their buck which is more than can be said for any of the other imports

    Never said he was a bad buy per se….just meant he did not last very long, injury wise etc…I am rather a fan of Freddy…but sitting on the sideline does not help your team a hell of a lot, now does it?? ;-)
