The Next sale

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by haggler, Jul 13, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The doris has the alarm set for half past 4
    Tragic that the place will be rammed with women fighting over overpriced rags when we want them in ripped kylie shorts and cotton vests

    Is your lady going?
  2. No. She worked for Next for 6 weeks, 18 months ago. They treat their staff like shite. She walked out. Completely out of character for her. Of 9 starters on the same week 7 others had gone by the time she left. An awful employer. Won't shop there anymore.
  3. Selfridges sale on?
  4. Not even I shop at Next, and I'll buy any old shit.

  5. Well I know mine won't be going to Next at Gemini....

  6. Not M&S, please not M&S. That's the only high point of going to visit the relatives. I get to stop off there first and buy strange and exotic foods that they don't get in Widnes. Like cheese.

  7. Nope Sluggy, Just Boots and Next. Last week on the 11th birthday of Boots opening there, been having loads of electrical problems and store went up just as it was being locked up.
    One of my old stores still have a lot of friends work there, they've been parcelled out to other nearby Boots until its decided whats happening.
    Highly likely both stores will be flattened and rebuilt.
  8. Show shields
  9. What sale? It's not thanksgiving already, is it?

    I'm tempted to go and spectate. One paddling pool of rice pudding and a Next sale would be a broadcastable sport.

  11. don't forget their wonderful "Dine in for two" promotion which is on this weekend.
  12. They don't deliver though. Tesco do the same deal, hence my OAP neighbours are having Tesco Finest chicken with lemon and herb butter and chunky chips tonight. I pull the "Oh, I can't fit this in the fridge" trick on them once every few weeks. I don't think they've sussed it yet.

    I'm keeping the wine and strawberry cheesecake for myself though. There are boundaries on being generous.

  14. Running short of foundation material for the patio, are we...?

    I'd like to say you're a good person, but I like my skin on me where it belongs.
  15. You fucking mad, mate? A store full of crazed "bargain hunting" harpies spending their other's halves pay? Plus the combat indicator that any number of them could be "surfing the crimson wave" and beyond sense, reason and bloody logic, further increasing the level of hysteria? It'd like a mob ready to turn on General Gordon when he tells them that the Mahdi can do one, and Khartoum belongs to Queen Victoria thank you very much.

    (And like The Snail says, it's all fucking shit anyway. What's the rush?)
