Today i saw my shoelace was frittered and nearly about to break, so i sneaked out from office to go buy a pair of shoelace, and the damn thing cost me 2.49 Pound Sterling.
I was shocked, its like Rs 220 or so in India. Gosh, this is sure one thing which you cant call cheap.
It gives the phrase "Living on a Shoe String" or "Shoe String Budget" a totally new meaning.
Who knows the British if they use this phrase they might mean Middle class rather than extremely scarce resourses.
I sure am not gonna use this phrase really soon again.
Infact with the kind of prices here in London, sometimes I do feel I am living on a shoestring.
