£40,000. Forty grand. 4 million pennies.
No matter how you write it, thats a hell of a lot of money. Its more than double my tiny salary (which is also referred to by the boyfriend as “50p and a Rolo”. Huh. I wish. At least I’d get some chocolate delivered to me every week.)
Also, if you hadn’t already noticed, tis that time of year when you end up spending all of your money on gifts your nearest and dearest love – or at least wait till after Boxing Day to return.
Why am I mentioning these things? If you’ve not already seen the adverts, then you might not know that Paypal have a competition running at the moment where you’re entered into a weekly prize draw to win Ã‚Â£40000 every time you use Paypal to buy something. The more you use Paypal, the more entries you get.
If I won that 40 grand, as soon as it hit my account, you just know that I’d be on my way to the Mulberry store. I’d hike, walk, steal a car – it doesn’t matter, I just want that oversized Alexa in sparkle tweed (psst! that would make a really good Christmas present for me. Just saying…) I think I’d learn to drive and buy a car, and of course I’d have to treat my friends! Of course I’d do all the sensible things – clearing debts, etc, but I definitely need some handbags and shoes ;)
Something I wasn’t aware of was that more and more websites of companies that I’d think of as being “high street” are now accepting Paypal. I was passing the Karen Millen shop near my office and saw the white dress below which made me have a look at their other party dresses online – and then noticed they also take Paypal! Dangerous perhaps…
