And I thought the people at store #1 were crazy!

October 22nd, 2006 at 02:52 am

We went to the mall yesterday (needed to repair DD's schoolbag, but the store that does it was closed!)...we passed in front of store #2, they had the exact same bed that store #1 sells at $199.20....only at #2 it was priced at $219...the payment plan?? (also on the card displayed on top of the bed, we didnt go in!)...24 easy payments of $16/ 52.00% interest + VAT...(so, I could get the exact bed for $315!!!)...honestly, I had to laugh!...

Plus, at this moment I really don't know if it makes any sense to keep looking...there's a (slight) chance that we may be moving out of the country in 3-6 months...true, Ale is almost at the limit and her tiny toddler bed will soon be uncomfy, but...I'm honestly thinking of waiting until March (this is when we would know more about that potential opportunity!)...

    and think of all those people who would think $16 per month was a good deal!!! Loan sharks who pray on the credit-uneducated - there should be laws that mandate honest disclosure!

    Moving out of the country?? I hope it is because of an exciting new opportunity!! or to be closer to family??

    a friend of mine might be getting a new post with the Min of Foreign Affairs ...she would like me to be her's still not 100% sure she would get the position...she has already submitted my resume, but, they still would have to screen me and it's all very uncertain at the moment...the scary part is that I would be (very) far away from my country, my clan (Ale is coming with me, of course!) and my friends...I've never been outside ES for longer than 2 weeks! -- and always staying with friends!...still, it is a great opportunity....
