DISCLAIMER – True story 

saturday ,february 9; 19:00 hours

Scene -  Me casually scrolling through facebook

Suddenly – Ping! An ad pops out

It is from an online shopping fashion website. On my screen is now a cute panda tee that looks so cute that it made me feel the panda would cry if I don’t open the link and have a look. I open it- It is available for  just 27 AED.

ME : Oh! that’s a pretty good deal, it is cheaper and cuter than what I see in shop…

Proceeds to checkout. There on top of the checkout button a note :

FREE EXPRESS DELIVERY FOR PURCHASE OF AED 110 AND ABOVE.

ME :Wow! If I buy for another 90 AED I get free delivery and that too express.!

online shopper

That’s one cute top!

saturday,february 9,22:00 hours

Scene : Me and husband are on the couch. HE is watching a movie, and me still scrolling through website 
searching for remaining 90 AED worth purchase

HIM: Is this not over?? Come watch the movie with me.

ME : No , You carry on , I am shopping.

HIM : Hmm, Okay

After 10 minutes

ME : My hands are paining.

HIM : (throws the phone on couch) Now okay ??

Online shopping

Him – “I am never going to get dinner today”

 

All through the week , I visualised myself wearing the panda top with my jeans to office. My head works like this  . If I order today I might be able to wear it to work on Thursday!

Back home – Too tired for anything but sleep!

wednesday,february 13

I see my husband has installed a new (I don’t know what it’s called) car accessory.  Apparently it has Bluetooth,Aux, USB port and what not.

ME- When did you buy this?

HIM – (casually.as if it is the most easiest thing on the planet) Oh ! I got it online

ME- (I don’t care tone) I am also buying something online..this weekend. Hmmm.. what did you do for free delivery??

HIM- Oh I just paid the delivery charges.

ME- (In my mind) What a fool! I am going to buy so much more and that too on zero delivery charges.

Scene: I am lying on bed, scrolling through the website

Me – Almost there, I just need another 6 AED to go! Maybe I’ll buy a cool scarf!
