Shoes for Sale – Smile!

This is a real e-mail I got at work. Left me in stitches and I thought it would be selfish not to share it with fellow bloggers. I think this guy has humorous writing potential, don’t you! Next time I list something for sale on Ebay, maybe I should consider his approach. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Shiny black high-heeled shoes โ€“ they look like three-inch heels to me
  • Size 6 (or 39 if youโ€™re a European)
  • Branded as โ€œFioreโ€ (a Matalan own-brand)
  • Made in China
  • Previously worn by a lady and never worn by me, honest
  • Left under my desk by a former employee who doesnโ€™t want them any more because they โ€œdidnโ€™t really fit herโ€
  • Very good condition for that reason
  • Free to a good home (or even a bad one โ€“ keep your pet hamsters in them if you want, I really donโ€™t care)

To be collected from the Timetabling, Exams and Course Records office.


  1. There used to be an intranet page at work for staff to flog stuff on. There was this guy who would advertise stuff like: 1 pair shoelaces, used but in good condition, 90cms, black. ยฃ1.50. No haggling.
    He always added that to every item. A friend and colleague used to delight in emailing offering less than the asking price.
    Thanks for reminding me with your funny post!
