Just received a letter from a holiday company we have dealt with before offering us "£££££'s off on visits to local attractions." Obviously the company is trying to drum up some additional trade in these times of crunch.
Hmmm. So, if one "£" is one UK pound sterling, does if follow that "££" is ten UK pounds sterling?
Taken to the logical conclusion, does that mean that the company can save us ten thousand UK pounds sterling?
Sod the attractions, I'll take the cash equivalent thank-you.
And - whats all this starting sentances with "and"?
We were never allowed to get away with that in our day.
Am I getting old? Don't bother, I know the answer.
