A few days ago, I placed a bid on a washable colouring book. Sprogzilla’s not old enough for that sort of thing yet, but he loves dinosaurs and I’m sure it will be a hit when the time comes.
Sprogdaddy and I agreed to only bid 99p as we’ve already spent a fortune on Christmas presents and this wasn’t exactly necessary. I popped it in my watch list and forgot about it.
I was pleasantly surprised when a message appeared on my iPad screen informing me I had won. Not bad for 99p! I opened up the app to pay for my bargain purchase and that’s when I noticed my bidding mistake. I’d clearly not been paying attention at the time and put my decimal point in the wrong place! I’ve captured a screenshot for posterity, check out the max bid I’d entered:
Yes, daft muggins here had only gone and bid £99! It took me a few stunned seconds to realise that I hadn’t actually won it at that price too. But no, I was very lucky it seems. I got it for 99p after all. *phew*
