ow, I know things like this have happened to me. The only difference here is that I have chosen to keep such hiccups to myself, mostly. In today’s online-ordering-world, this is a common trap one can easily fall into from time to time. We browse for need, often in a hurry, click buy, and end up with success or failure.
However, this instance is one in which we should all take to heart and make ourselves READ THE FINE PRINT. Now, I’m not saying we should read privacy agreements with cell phone companies which are like 15 pages long or something, but THIS is an example when taking a couple of minutes would, in fact, be worth one’s time.
Dateline, Leeds, United Kingdom. A caring mother was attempting to find a simple wading pool for her children when their pool needed to be replaced. She found one online for a VERY good price. Now, in addition to reading the fine print, one should always remember the age-old-saying of “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. See, this wading pool, in England it’s known as a “paddling pool”, was being sold for only 1 pound (£1). Now in my world this equals about $1.32. Seem to good to be true OR has she found the Deal of the Century?
You be the judge. No, she’s not a giant.
