I look at online shopping the same way Danny Dyer looks at drugs – dabble once or twice throughout the year and have a blow out around Christmas time. Christmas shopping is so much easier with some Class A narcotics…I mean classy-online-shopping-usage (phew):
Anybody not using the internet to at least browse, is what I like to call – old. It’s usually cheaper, the stores never close, there’s no queueing up and it’s free to park. Okay, traditional shopping may provide product demonstrations, a burger van between stores and a ridiculous amount of perving opportunities but I’m sticking to the internet. Infinite hot drinks at your disposal, no bags to carry and no bitter, December temperatures to face. There’s really no contest and as for perving, I’ve ‘heard’ the web is pretty opportunistic for that too.
Like Danny Dyer, just make sure your supplier is well known, Amazon for example. Or go direct to the source, Comet/Argos/River Island etc. Avoid any dodgy sites wired on pop-ups and adverts. My strongest advice is not to get addicted, to drugs or shopping online – both can make your eyes bloodshot, make your money vanish and make your friends imaginary.
Please note that I have never taken a drug in a my life, my references were to Danny Dyer…who has taken drugs, in fact – he’s probably taking them right now.
