Brang? What does that even mean?

WPMOT? - After 7 hours in a National Express seat designed for tiny people, my cocyx feels like I've been in an arse-kicking contest with a platoon of clompy-booted goths.

Also: Found a couple of shops that had many, many old British comics for sale. (Victor, Valiant, Hotspur and so forth) This made me happy.
Then I found out how much they wanted for them...

oh, I am, but it's frustrating when I spent a lot of effort and time getting it changed and that change approved in the first place!

I work at oxfam bookshop in Cardiff and try to give the best price for my customers. Has signed comics which I sold for reasonable prices and they sell out. I have collectibles and know what I'm talking about but don't see the point of selling them for a fortune.
I had this one guy who was looking at the comics so I said "I have a few comics downstairs if your interested" and he replied with "Yeah I'm looking for Americana comics that you probably don't know about" and gave me that -because your just a girl look. So I went downstairs. brought up a few good comics then he took the lot! Ha ha see I do know my stuff.
As far as charity is concerned I don't like charging too little because then I get collectors who sell them on for amazing profit but I have allot of good customers who know me and know I give a good price.
OMG I love being th sci-fi manager. Every saturday I just get to play with comics and first addition asmov magazines. HEAVEN!!
]I'm dyslexic and have trouble spelling. Please do not correct me.

I try my best...sometimes for you spelling nazis that is not enough

It's what idiots say instead of "brought". Etymologically it's the Old(e) English past tense of "bringan" but in reality it's what tracksuited gobshites with a limited command of the English language say when they mean "brought". Like I say, it's not even the fact that it's 'non-standard' English that annoys me, it's just that "brang" is so horribly grating, wheher written or spoken...

Went to shops. Shops were filled with people.


I fucking hate it when shops are filled with people. And small children. All buzzing around like mindless fucking bees.
