new hope dashed

Postby commonbeing » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:50 am

So I was in Morrisons in Bishop Auckland a month or so ago and there standing at the front of the shop was life size cardboard hansolo and Chewbacca advertising for the solo movie. I immediately asked if Chewbacca was for sale as he looked awesome, they notified me that they were running a raffle to win him so I promptly bought a few strips of raffle tickets.

Now last Thursday I get a call "you've won Chewbacca" I was over the moon and said I would be in to collect him soon. When I arrived I was told the someone else had been in and taken the Chewbacca,gutted!!!!
They offered me the hansolo which can only presume the other person had really won but wangled my Chewbacca away from me. I was very angry as you can imagine, they lady told me that she wasn't the one dealing with the raffle and to come back Monday.
I've just been back in and they made some cock and bull story that I had in fact won the hansolo showing me my ticket stub which they had written Han solo on, as if that was true and they hadn't just written it on to fob me off.
The universe really plays games with you sometimes!
I feel like joining the dark side now :x

I'm sure there's a joke here, about missing out on something big and hairy......but I'm buggered if I can think of it.

By the way, welcome to the forum :D

South London Gangster?.... cardboard cutout cunt! (From The Business).

I too clocked those in Morrisons in Hadleigh and thought - I would like that Chewie. Then I walked off and got in my car :wink: If you don’t like the Solo I’m sure you can sell it and buy something you do want 8) I think you can get a Chewie one online for about 30 spons.
