What a pile of *&%@e this lot are
Last year I broke my Badminton bat by trying my best to drive a shuttlecock through an opponents ear-hole by using my forehand smash
A look through their site and, surprise surprise, there are quite a few nice new bats that were £8 bajillion that are now reduced to a much more reasonable £30 or there about.
A trip to the sucking retail park anus that is their shop and, shock horror, none of these bats are available, everything they have that was £8 bajillion is only reduced to £279.99 and there are a couple of really
crappy primary school type kits. There are some odd bits that are OK so I mosey out feeling aggrieved and slightly done with a £40 bat that can at least help me in my mission to inflict my opponent with concussion.
Fast forward and I now find myself in need of a ping pong paddle.
You can tell what's coming, can't you?
The sharty web site shows me that the current world-championship bit of wood with sticky back plastic on it is £2.3 bajillion, but
, it is currently on offer for £15.
So am I going to visit their festering pustule of a shop to search forlornly through their s*&%^y shelves?
Am I [email protected]
I'll order the gear I want, get one of their acne raddled yoofs to prepare it and I'll get Mrs Pat to pick it up on the way home from work
Checkout, stage two, click "click and collect" - WTF is this
a £5 charge TO COLLECT MY OWN FECKIN' ORDER
I won't bother telling you how utterly rubbish their e-commerce site is, I'm hoping that this little tirade will be sufficient to put you off using these twarts, but I can assure you it is cack.
As is their "add a crappy mug and a pointless magazine to your order in the hope you won't see it" strategy.
As is their "sign you up to our crappy newsletter by default" strategy.
As is their "fancy a tenner discount from some god-awful third party that will charge you some sh*t subscription fee" offer strategy.
Guess what Sprouts Direct?
YOU CAN STICK IT!
