This is not a whinge, but moreso a heads up for prospective punters.
On the weekend Ms Thumper and myself went out to Aussie Junk at Mitchell to look for some cheap second hand building material. Sadly we could not find what we wanted.
However, Ms Thumper found a nice piece of stained glass wedged behind some other stuff. On the glass was a sticker proclaiming $15.
Beauty we say, that’s cool, let’s buy it and proceeded to the counter. In between I’d managed to pick up an old guitar case and some paddles as well.
At the counter we were greeted by a man who took a look at the $15 dollar sticker and then accused us of changing the price. To prove this, he then attempted to take the sticker off, which it steadfastly refused to do, all the time still accusing us of changing it.
He then suggested $20.
Not taking this lying down, Ms Thumper and myself decided to proclaim loudly that he could stick his glass where ever it fitted (in a nice calm way) and that we didn’t change the sticker, and that he (the man behind the counter) was blatently lying. This of course brought the attention of the punters onto his actions. So much so, that after all his protestations and accusations, he then offered it to us for, you guessed it, $15.
So, the moral of the story is, don’t take any sh*t from the tosser behind the counter at Aussie Junk Mitchell. He obviously thought he could bully us into paying more but out of principle, we were not going to. We would have happily walked out with out the glass just to prove a point.
