Don’t you just hate it when you know you’re being ripped off?
At Carrefour the other day I bought a pack of yogurts for the girls’ lunchboxes – you know the ones in tubes that they can suck.
A nice visible stamp across the pack shouted out £1, only for the price tag on the shelf to read AED13 – that’s over £2. More than double the price.
I still bought them but chucked them in the trolley feeling aggrieved.
I know they have to import most things over here – but they could be a bit more discreet don’t you think? Same goes for clothes out here – why can’t they take off the UK price tag before adding 25%. I can wait until my summer break in the UK to buy clothes, but starving the kids until then may be going a bit far?
About this blog...
I set up this blog to reveal what real life is like here in the UAE - the good and the bad. I'll chat about what I've been up to, Dubai news and developments, my thoughts about expat life here (and in general) and reports about my holidays and adventures in the region (travel is my bag after all).
