Good service

I reserved a display item at a Swiss shop and we agreed on a price for the said item. Two days later I get a call telling me to collect the item and interestingly the lady knocked 35% off the price without me asking.

That really made my day and I just had to tell someone so I logged in to tell you all

Re: Good service

Damn! Banned. We'll never know now.

Incidentally, I went into the pet shop on Clarastrasse last week to ask how much wasps were.

"We don't sell wasps", said the man.

"Oh. But you have one on display in the window."
