Tis the season and all that, people buying presents and all the shopping on overkill.
Wandering around a few shops yesterday it struck me that there are some very popular items/things that I just "don't get". I don't understand the popularity.
I could name loads of things, but I'll stick to two: phones and televisions.
Phones... Madness to me. 500 and 600 and 700 plus quid for a phone. For what?!
I'll buy myself a phone for around 100 quid, job done for years. It will take good pictures, good videos, loads of storage, use the Internet. Job done.
So why are people spending 10 times more on such a basic tool? Oh it can load a Web page 0.0000000007 nano seconds faster? Wow! It has multiple lens to take a picture? Phwooar!
Nah, just don't get it. Whatsoever.
Televisions are the same to me. Big television, very nice.
Spend an extra thousand quid to go from "4k" to "8k"? Crazy. I'm looking at the display televisions on shops, and I don't think I'd notice a difference even if I had a magnifying glass.
I just don't get it.
I understand paying more for a couple extra features, but literally multiples of the price? Nah, it's barking mad.
What don't ye "get" over the silly season? Or are you barking mad too? Woof!
