Almost 25 for a pair of flip-flops from Pwicey's Lemonade...what a flippin' rip-off!!!

I remember paying 50p for them (they were from Primark) one summer during my 70s childhood.

I say one summer because wearing these pesky flip-flops were pure torture, almost cutting between my toes, causing so much pain walking long distances. After that, I swore that I would never wear them in my lifetime again.

Funnily enough I had a feeling of deja-vu when I met my friend in a supermarket earlier this summer and she was pushing her 11 yr old daughter in a mega-huge shopping trolley. I thought it was a funny sight until I noticed the girl had her flip-flops on. My friend explained that the girl's flip-flops were hurting her feet so she couldn't walk properly. The cuts between her toes looked almost raw just like mine were. *shudder*
Yep, 25. And they likely cost 5p to produce in Taiwan.
Good Lord, you can buy the creme de la creme of flip-flops , Havaianas, for less than that and they are top quality stuff.
