Another in my occasional series of "Flashbacks" looking back at blog entries made before this Weebly version started.
I’m getting a bit frustrated with the quality of Chinese goods! The handles of my new pair of scissors fell off after a week of use. My ironing board topples over when you put an iron on the tray where the iron is supposed to go! My new nail clippers broke (yes, the metal actually sheared in two) as I trimmed my nails. And the jumper I bought a few days ago developed a hole the size of a 50p piece under the arm after just one day’s wear. I took it back to the shop and, as I walked in, the shopkeeper grinned at me and pointed to his armpit. It seems the whole batch have the same defect! The answer? He arranged to have it darned by the afternoon, and now it’s as good as new. You just don’t get that sort of service (or quality) from your local Marks and Sparks!!
