    OK. Left home this a.m. and headed to consumerville.
    On arrival, we were quickly approached by an eager, store employee. (Something I'm sure he regretted, in time).
    I explained to him our predicament and showed him the receipt etc. After laying on the 'We live a long way from here and that I returned from Moreton Island so as to be present for the delivery', plus a bit more waffle, he was still a bit reticent to come to an amicable agreement on a different brand and model tele.
    I then stepped back and released "The Haggler from Hades". I stood in awe, as the transaction dialogue, between she and he, was beautifully crafted to produce a verdict, in our favour.
    As a consequence, we are having delivered tomorrow, a 65" OLED LG C1 for $200 more than the original deal.

    No wonder I can't win an argument!

    Well done Helen.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    Oh! We also got a $200 gift voucher through AGL, too.

    Well, 30 minute unpack and set up and all good. Watched the footy and it was a class above what we had, which was pretty good.

    Their ability to negotiate once your being reasonable approach has failed can be something to behold

    I pulled into a car park and as was parking the car there was someone approaching the car muttering loudly and looking our way. Now for context this is not UK but am in my car which has UK plates. Due to politics this can be a problem with certain but not most local individuals

    He made the mistake of approaching the passenger side of the car. Wife had appraised situation and stepped out of car giving a full broadside starting as soon as her feet hit the ground. Could see from expression on his face was not expecting a local who had even reverted to full local regional accent. Was almost funny to see the expression on his face change and his step falter

    Then the flank attack. One of her sisters was in the back seat and stepped out and joined in the verbal assault. Poor bloke was walking backwards as the duo kept walking towards him.

    He decided was better to make an exit than face them. I though still had to put up with a shopping trip
