Kinda tricky innit? But lo and behold...this dear friend of mine had it alllllllll figured out and actually made it possible. Here's how the pro did it.
First off, you call your friend on the day prior to your purchase date. You talk to him in the sweetest and most polite tone and ask if you can borrow his car to load the tv. If you have good enough friends (like me), your friend(which is me) would agree to do you that favour. Did i mention that i was that good friend already? Yeah it was me.
Next off, you head to Tesco...in your friend's car. Then you look around Tesco to browse the display models. You like one but its only available in the size that you're not looking for. What then? Of course you head to Harvey Norman to try your luck and PRAY they have stock there. But too bad your prayers aren't as strong as Mama Diva's curses. (mak larriiik ke Uganda sorok bawah cactus dulu) So of course, no stock also lah. Then you have to head back to tesco to buy your TV. Hold it there, you dun know what struggelism is yet.
When you head back to Tesco, you only discovered that the 2nd available choice of your TV is already pre-booked bt another costumer. What do you do? Of course you pull a sad Hush Puppy face, make up a story to the Abang Tesco and pray your ass off that he'll buy your sad story. In which he does eventually.
Yes. You push the TV in a huge ass cart and make your way to the opposite end of the huge ass Tesco...banging customers within your radius; thus causing irritable glares but you buat derk jer. Make your payment at the counter and head to the smelly cargo lift.
Next off, you get a few Bangla Tesco staffs to help you load the TV into your friend's car.
And this time, they succed with a close call. They smile at you in a huge relief and you thank them in return of course. Then they wave a friendly bye bye and now you're all on your own.
After that, your kind friend drives back home with you seating at the backseat being squashed by the humongous tv. Your friend drives to your apartment and now you have to figure your way out to remove the 29 incher from the car.
Thank god you have more than 1 good friend. No way in gay hell this delicate oriental flower is gonna carry a 29 inch Samsung man. I'll just be clicking the snap button of my camera phone at laugh along. This is a job for.....Mama Diva. He's good at carrying things and opening jars.
And that my friends....is what we call struggelism. Classic example!
Don't you just love helping your friends :)
