The average Brit is no better than a Yank when it comes to ticket price, the difference being he tends to gripe more out of earshot. I don't know how it's like right now, but I don't recall that many sales in the 90s UK, at least on hobby and luxury items. Here there are periodic sales and coupons worth something, so if something's not urgently needed ATM, why pay full price?
I post on a couple of sites that are American. Neither have anything to do with gaming, but both are full of Yanks moaning about not paying full price for stuff. Couple that with the prevailing attitudes on TNP - the latest bitch is about international shipping cost - and you begin to think that yer average Septic is a tight cunt.

All of Paris is touristy, the place is packed with gawping Yanks and rude Chinese. The shop in question was on the Place Vendome.Condottiero wrote:What were you doing at a high end jewelers in Paris?
Buying jewellery you twat. I fucking hate London, it's just as easy to go to Paris, and not much more expensive.
