Deals That People as Beautiful as You Bought….Wowcher

I sign up for these voucher sites, Living Social, Groupon, etc. – you know the ones. They usually contain a mix of offers ranging from photo printing and weekends away, to MOTs and hair cuts and everything in between. We’ve had a lovely weekend away and some great canvases printed for the house using these sites  – my father in law is addicted to them….

However today I think they’ve misjudged their marketing….

I received an email from Wowcher with the tag line “Deals That People as Beautiful as You Bought ” – which  had me sticking my fingers down my throat and gagging before I opened even it, expecting a host of offers for bargain clothes and hair and beauty products.

What it actually contained however were offers for thread vein treatments, lipo suction and skin tag removals –


What the hell is Wowcher trying to tell us??? – re-read the tag line with  a sarcastic emphasis on “beautiful” and I think you’ll see where I’m going with this. Way to make a girl feel bad about herself Wowcher – What’s next for people as beautiful as me, diet pills, gastric bypass and face lifts?

‘No bullet’ jibe for train row soldier

After writing of the insults I received courtesy of a train manager on my journey south the other day (here) I came across an article in today’s Metro that sounded all too familiar. It seems Cross Country Trains managers are at it again, and not even our armed forces are impervious to their jibes

A teenage solider traveling home from a tour of duty in Iraq is removed from a train after getting irate with a smart mouthed train manager whom, after asking the solider to pay full fare quipped:

‘I don’t know what you’re complaining about. It is not as if you’ve taken a bullet or anything.’

I wonder if Zachary had encountered the same man I was I faced with, I seriously hope so as maybe this time his superiors maybe forced to take action!
