5.0 out of 5 stars not right, 28 Aug 2012
This review is from: BiC For Her Medium Ballpoint Pen (Box of 12) - Blue (Office Product)
I saw this pen, and thought to myself "This is a wonderful oppurtunity to buy my long-sufferring wife a nice little token of my affection". Ordered it, bought it and presented it to my lovely lady, waiting for her reaction. It wasn't long in coming. "Gorgeous!", she squealed, "You're so thoughtful! How did you know? It's just what I've always wanted. Come to me now you wonderful, thoughtful man!". She edged closer to me, her lips parted seductively, a tigerish smile playing across her adoring face. Then, she noticed me nervously closing the lap-top. "What's this?" she growled, "Where'd you get this from?". My twitching silence encouraged her further. "Amazon!" she spat, "You do know these people are fleecing the British public, by paying no corporation tax on over £3 billion worth of sales? You do know as well as robbing the Treasury, avoiding funding hospitals, schools, and everything us tax payers support - they also use this dodgy, legal but totally immoral loophole to give them an unfair advantage on all the other straight-dealing traders out there who pay the requisite amount of tax.". I turned to her beautiful face pleadingly, but it was too late.She looked at me scornfully "And to think I trusted you. You aren't the man I married and that's for sure. I'm going back to my mother. Goodbye loser!". Thanks to Amazon's free-wheeling attitude to tax I'm now sleeping in my car, and living on PotNoodles made using the hot water from my radiator. Do the right thing Amazon, pay the appropriate taxes.
