Household economy

June 6, 2012


A husband and wife are shopping in Pak and Save supermarket when the man picks up a carton of Speight’s (beer, for any non-Kiwis who might be wondering … really bad beer, but beer nonetheless) and sticks it into the trolley.

‘What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the wife. ‘They’re on special, only $20 for 24 bottles’, he says.

‘Put them back. We can’t afford it,’ says the wife and they carry on shopping.

A few aisles later the woman picks up a $40 jar of face cream and sticks it into the trolley.

‘What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the man. ‘It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,’ she says.

The man replies … ‘so does 24 bottles of Speights AND IT’S HALF THE PRICE’

I live in the deep south of New Zealand, where smelly dairy cows are taking over from sheep in the livestock stakes. My hometown is the small but perfectly formed city of Invercargill, which is also the hometown of the original boy racer, Burt Munro. Find out more about me here.
