Steptoe & Sons

Post by Who2 » Thu May 23, 2013 8:07 pm

Went looking for some posh Lloyd Loom type reclining chairs today, Up to the 3rd top floor with my trusty nepalese sherper and found 4 half decent chairs and a table, meanwhile Steptoe, old man Mohamed {wilfred bramble} 90 years old plus, bounded up three floors like a bleeding tyrollean goat, "how much ? I enquired "150le each, "get the f***out of here", "Shokran, good day and have a s**t life.
What a crap businessman, I can buy brand new bamboo chairs from Ahmed in Memnon for 30 le each..so don't bother with Steptoe's.....:cool:
"haggle he dosen't know the meaning of haggle.....
Ps: 'on second thoughts the way business is going, I could have bought 1 table and 4 chairs from Sinbads, for a round of drinks!
la whaala!

After 5 years my odd 15 chairs x 8 tables 2 x divan are showing a bit of wear and tear admittedly and Ahmed has made other things like wardrobe ect to my specifications. 2 Xmas' ago he made a dining table and 4 chairs for me 200le and agree, no-doubt his prices will have increased slightly, he even made me a rocking chair that does not rock....:cool:

Any idea what he would charge to make 2 single beds (with mattresses) ?
It is what it is.
