I love a bargain. I love table top sales, car boot sales and browsing round charity shops so when my friend Debi suggested going to an NCT Nearly New Sale tomorrow you would think I would have jumped at the chance. But I've decided not to go....why?
The last NCT sale I went to was with my mum and she offered to buy a baby walker for Sam. I found a great brand new looking one that was perfect so we grabbed it and after lugging it round for a while, put it in the special place for storing big items and carried on shopping. When I went back to get it, someone had STOLEN it!!! Well not technically stolen it I guess but removed the pile of things on top of it and pretended it was theirs. It really annoyed me at the time because I hate it when you realise that not everybody is nice and honest and decent - it always shocks me for some reason and this has put me off going again. But I've also decided that I dont like the way NCT sales make ME behave either! I'm not sure what it is - maybe its the queuing outside you have to do or the fact that they let members in first so you see them walking out with all the good stuff but they make me behave like a possessed mad woman. I end up charging around grabbing stuff I dont need just in case someone else gets its first. I dont like the fact that I think about barging past heavily pregnant women just to get a bargain. Its only NCT sales that make me behave like this tho, I'm generally fairly sane and nice and polite so I've decided to be a better person and not go tomorrow. I'm not going to become the sort of person who steals other peoples baby walkers!! Anybody else become a maniac at NCT sales??
