I found myself thinking Who are these people? Then I remembered they are not even people. They are simply automated advertisements (and your attention to them may have been monitored!)
The thought just went through my head Don't give them the satisfaction - then I remembered 'they' are machines - they don't get satisfaction. How quickly my thinking becomes a little bit crazy!
I refuse to be hassled and harassed. I will not be buying from any of them. I can do without the pressure! I may well miss a bargain (and I do like a bargain) but I will buy at my own pace and in my own good time, and if need be, at full price.
Though to beat the system I may just stock up on the bargains in January when the pressure is off and stash them away....and by this time next year would be feeling very smug!
Would I miss the excitement?
No, I don't think I would.
