Work today.

Me: "Hello, I'm calling to check on your tape stock prices - 15 min. and 30 min. ones."

Shop hack: "Sure. 85 p per 15 min, 52 p per 30 min."

Me: "Oh really? I have a spring 2000 rate card here and it says 48 p per 15 min. So you're telling me that your prices have almost doubled since then?"

Silence. Then:

Shop hack: "Umm, yeah. It's 48 p per 15 min tape."

Sometimes I surprise myself with my bargaining ways!
