I hate it.
I’ve read a few of the comments on our very own Edge website and elsewhere about it not only being a thing of the present, but of the future as well.
But nah, it’s not for me.
Case in point. I need a new pair of trainers and the Asics pair I currently own have stood me in really good stead, so I figured I might as well treat myself to another pair of those.
I noticed a bloke called Mike Ashley was selling them online, so I ordered a pair and it cost me an extra £4.90 to have them delivered.
When I received them, I took one look at ’em, closed the box (without even trying them on) and I was back round my local NISA store to send them back PDQ, which cost me another £4.90.
So, for the best part of a tenner, I have ended up with absolutely nothing to my name, whereas that twat Mike Ashley is quid’s in.
Yep, online shopping is the future alright.
