|Two fat ducks on a stick|
I buy quite a few bits and pieces from Amazon because it is easier – and usually cheaper – than buying locally.
The problem with this is that as soon as I search for something on Amazon I am forever bombarded with advertisements for the products – or similar products – even if I buy the damned thing.
A weeks or so ago I was looking for some Apple widgets on Amazon and looked at this. Since then it has not given me a moment’s peace and goes with me everywhere.
I mean – if I buy some printer cartridges – which I did - what is the point of sending me emails about the very same printer cartridges – or putting advertisements on every web page I look at for the next six months about things I just bought.
Perhaps they think I have a printer cartridge fetish. Having just bought some I will suddenly decide I can’t live without being knee deep in them.
At least my stalkers at the moment are a change from the hamburger that haunted me for about a year – and no I never did buy one.
