This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

Dyson Cleaner for £20???
Mrs Coops demanded that we buy a new hoover after I used the old one to clean up a load of nails, screws and bits of plastboard (yes, I could have used my hands to pick them up, but I was in a hurry and had better things to do).

So off we trot to the nearest branch of a well known department store where she decides we simply have to have the most expensive Dyson machine they have in stock. They give us the usual 'buy now, pay later, 0% interest.etc' deal and we happily go on our way.

1 week later we get a letter thanking us for setting up a direct debit.
2 weeks later, we get a letter thanking us for our final payment of £20, account closed, thanks very much.

Turns out someone missed the last digit off the paperwork, hence a brand new Dyson for £20, not £200. I wonder why they went out of business last year?...
