As I write this, we’re at the end of the second day of full lockdown, or “being grounded” as I like to refer to it.
And what amazes me is how the media is rubbing salt in our wounds, by playing out of date TV and radio adverts.
I listened to the news this morning, and then straight away saw four adverts:
- An ad for McDonald’s breakfasts – when they’re closed.
- What to do if you see a red X on the motorway –which we are not supposed to be using
- Invest in a stocks and shares ISA – when the bottom has fallen out of the stockmarket
- Travel with GWR to Bristol – when we are barely allowed out into our gardens!
And then I saw a Sky TV advert for Sky Store with the message, “Reasons to stay in in March” – as if we had a choice!
