OK so right now I hate hate HATE Family Mart and Burger King (Japan)|
Family Mart were doing a Macross F Tombola which started on the 17th and was meant to run til the end of the month.
The nearest one doing it was 2km away, so I walked there on the 17th, had 3 goes, and went home, planning on hitting it up regularly, partly for things I could sell on eBay, partly for the exercise. Went back on Monday and it was over! WTF?
Burger King too, had this "Windows 7 Burger" thing on offer from the 22nd til the 28th. Went there today (a 4km walk, in the rain) and they'd sold out in half an hour on the first day. Why the hell would you claim to offer something for a week or so and only have enough for 30 minutes? If it were to get people in the shop, so they would buy something else (which was more profitable) it back-fired as when I found out I left the place straight away. Still angry though.
