So did YOU win a Kindle 3G from Bitterwallet?
Last Monday we set the world alight with another blazing Bitterwallet competition and no less than three Amazon Kindle 3Gs to be won. You lapped up the chance to join the e-book revolution like a dog with seventeen tongues, and now it's time to tell you who will be getting the blighters.
We gave one of the Kindles away via Twitter, on condition that you followed Bitterwallet and tweeted a completed phrase. We've picked one such person at random from all the entries and they are Jonathan Mathews, who came up with this entirely uninspired phrase:
Duller than Doncaster it may have been, but then we weren't looking for originality - congratulations Jonathan. Next, we had a Kindle 3G for an avid Bitterwallet reader that would be our friend on Facebook and complete a rather more tawdry phrase. Another one picked at random, the winner is Simon Taylor:
Finally, as rabid Bitterwallet editor Andy recalled some of the more curious sights witnessed in his years of retail experience, we asked for your retail tales. The last Kindle 3G would be awarded to the person who told the best story, in the opinion of the judges. That was Andy and I, and we settled on this from Eyevz:
I used to work in a certain retail chain that inhabited Virgin megastore sites until it went bust while studying…
A customer got so over excited about the pile of reduced price Peter Kay dvds that – for whatever reason – they vomited.
Promptly two people browsing nearby then vomited as a result of the “hear vomiting see vomiting do some vomiting” and vomited themselves.
The sales assistant then tasked with cleaning up the carnage then ran over with a mop, slid for about 10 metres along the tiled floor and wiped out into a large Johnny Depp cutout. I still can’t look at my old staff t-shirt / posters of Johnny Depp without being reminded of the incident.
Why did this story stand out? In the words of Andy, "I did a huge LOL and a small vomit." Congratulations Eyevz and everyone else, and thanks for entering! More Bitterwallet hardware to win soon.
