I was looking at their flat twin and earth cable and when I saw the price, I was so surprised that I said, "yer 'avin' a ***in' giraffe"
At that moment, a woman who was standing close by started asking me for advice regarding plasterboard wall plugs. I must have appeared somewhat bewildered because she said "Well I thought you'd be the man to ask as you're obviously a builder"
So - was it the attire, the stuff I was carrying... or was it the comment which gave it away?
Oh, the reason for my comment regarding the price of cable? Wickes wanted a total of Â£42 for the cable I needed. When I got home I bought the lot on fleabay for Â£9.40 including delivery.
