Antics And Antiques

Don’t Bottle Up Your Feelings

A man who turned up at the Antiques Roadshow was left red-faced when he was told what he thought was an expensive bottle was an old bottle from Tesco that he had bought for more than £1,000. But a glass expert told him: "It's an empty olive oil bottle, Tesco, circa 2008 - it's worth nothing."

Oops, we all get deceived at one time or another. It is still better to take a chance on something or someone and live through the experience than to be empty inside and not feel at all.

Lets hope no money exchanged hands.
I dare say I have a few of those bottles here!

Must have been really embarassing, poor guy.

I would have been extremely p***ed off had it been me and gone back to the vendor demanding my money back!
