The wife and I went to Nakumatt the other day.
Tusker beer was on offer. Buy three 6-packs, get one free at 540.00 each.
That works out to 90.00 a can. Deal of the week (or so I thought).
I was putting them in the trolley and the wife goes “What are you doing? Thats 500shillings. We need to economize, especially with the economic meltdown. Put them back right now!”
I put my tail my between my legs and the beer back on the shelf.
As we continued shopping I saw her put something in the trolley. I asked her what it was.
“It’s make up and its on sale at 1,200 shillings” she said.
I repeated her own words “What are you doing? Thats 1,200 shillings. We need to economize, especially with the economic meltdown. Put them back right now!” To which she answered “but it makes me look beautiful”.
I said “so will four 6-packs of beer, and they’re less than half the price!!”
For some reason I really thought that was economical. I have stopped coughing blood, so the doctors are optimistic.
