A Grinch Sighting!

Have you seen the Grinch lately? You know - The Mean One! The one with the tiny heart! The deviously clever and stingy guy!

Do you remember how the Grinch stole Christmas? Well, almost that is..... I hear he's out there looking for a way to steal it again. He's cleverly thinking of ways to ruin our Holiday season and hijack our cheer. This summer, he was reportedly seen at the gas pumps!

That may have been true but he seems to have departed that location.

I verified that to be true yesterday when I filled up my car and only paid $1.89 for premium unleaded gasoline versus the $4.41 (and higher) I've paid earlier in the year. And believe it or not -Oil dropped to $36 US a barrel today! So I'm not convinced he's still hanging around the oil markets. Regardless, I'm on the lookout for him because I know he's hiding and waiting for another opportunity to get us. Besides, "he owes me money!" He borrowed it from my retirement plan!

"He's a mean one you know?"

He was recently seen suspiciously walking the streets in this little town. He was caught on film "speaking in tongues" by a random tourist who supplied this clip:

If you know his name, please leave it in the comments section.

If you know his whereabouts or happen to see him, please let me know. I want my money back!

Petrol has fallen here too. My diesel has fallen to 97p a litre as opposed to £1.34+ a couple of months back.

Price of chocolate hasn't dropped yet though...just keeps on rising. Boo Hoo. Have you got those choccy shares yet? I might need to get my hands on some insider truffles...

Jane Turley said...

Nope, absolutlely true Speedy. I've noticed it particularly amongst the cheaper brands where I suppose they have less margin anyway. Tis most annoying! My chocolate covered flapjack isn't quite so economical as it used to be. Boo hoo.
