I normally aspire to greater than that Will.

I must admit the 'customer' has thrown me a bit. One normally associates a customer as being one who purchases something either goods or services and I am not sure what it is that I have purchased or indeed what it is that the powers that be think I should purchase.

Still I must admit it has to be a whole better that being perceived as a 'Grandpa'....

Cheers Gypsy.....

Hmm.... I think I might prefer "Grandpa" to "Whore". I'd better keep posting to get to the next level!

Ohh I don't know, I'm pretty proud of the fact I made both coles and Woolworth's change their rain-check policy on a national level.

Think Grandpa lasts longer than Whore though Amanda. Whore only has the connotations on it that you place on the word.

I think there are probably quite a few husbands out there who would love to have there wives whore around a bit with them.

You truely were a 'customer' then and good on you for taking them on.

Speaking of which do you want to share what it is that you achieved?? We might then all be able to take advantage of your reputation.

Cheers...

short story! coles used to have a number limit on any rain-check, eg if you went in to buy 20 xxxxx on special they would only rain-check say six.
Woolies used to have a fairly short time period for the rain-check,I think it was 2 weeks from memory. nows its three months.
They still try to pull those stunts but a quick word to the store manager soon gets to the proper deal.

Coles has 30 days but can't comment on any others. Some places will not even offer a rain check and then others never follow up with it.

It is not an option that I use every often, simply forget about it I think but thank you Will on behalf of all the people who do use it.

Cheers Gypsy...
