The Results Are In

There are results in life
That I care about
The results of an academic endeavour perhaps
Or the outcome of a job interview

And medical results
On the occasions that
A test is required
Usually matter
Be they mine
Or those of someone I care about

To a lesser extent
Even the results of sporting fixtures
Matter a little
Some more than others perhaps
But they can impact on my mood

In contrast however,
And in spite of the bold type-face employed
In the congratulatory email sent to advise me
That I had saved a princely £1.30
I find myself largely indifferent
(And maybe it’s just me)
To my Tesco Brand Guarantee Results

    Perhaps you are not playing their game well enough James?

      I expect not. I didn’t realise there was a game until I got the results…

    You have to see the bigger picture – that’s £1.30 towards your next coffee :-))

      There is truth and wisdom in your argument…

    everything is relative: 1 pound 30 is US$1.95
