Was I being unreasonable trying for a 73p discount

Just picked up 6.2kg turkey, it came to £89.73 so I said got the butchers, is that £89 then? He flatly refused.
Yes yes I know you wouldn't try this in waitrose but neither would you have to pay £14.50 a kg (my husband's decision to use this butchers, not mine)

Was I being unreasonable to consider asking?

Yes. It's 73p.

Bit cheeky maybe. But if you don't ask, you don't get!

You don't ask you don't get as the saying goes. Ywnbu to ask so long as you accepted his answer. Enjoy your turkey bet it'll be lovely.

I would have just given him £90 and left it at that.

Of course you were.

Er I would have given him £90! That’s much easier to round too. Yes very cheeky to ask.

Pikachuwithyourmouthclosed Fri 15-Dec-17 17:58:20

Why not go the other way?
Butcher: so that's £90 then.
Niseko: err... no it isn't.

I think you’d be unreasonable to expect it, but not necessarily unreasonable to ask. You don’t ask, you don’t get.

Yanbu. The local Butcher usually rounds it off to the pound. Maybe as it was a posh butchers it was not exceptable.

It’s 73p just pay the butcher without a fuss ffs. If you can afford £89 for a turkey, 73 bloody pence is hardly going to break you and I do find it embarrassing you tired this tbh

YWNBU to ask I suppose but I hope you didn't kick off when he said no

How much?
Dear god. I’d want it to cook it’s self and deal with Boxing Day too for that.

I would have also handed over £90

buggerthebotox Fri 15-Dec-17 18:03:05

£89 for a turkeyfshock misses point

glitterbiscuits Fri 15-Dec-17 18:04:01

I’m a vegetarian so clueless about the price of meat. Is this a normal cost? How many people would you feed for £90.00 ?

RavenLG Fri 15-Dec-17 18:04:25

Why are you trying to basically take money from an independent butcher? You’d sharp have something to say if he kindly rounded it up for you 🙄

Stealth boast guys

maddiemookins16mum Fri 15-Dec-17 18:06:02

I'd never get a turkey that big in my oven! Are you freezing it now?

crackerjacket Fri 15-Dec-17 18:07:34


He should have charged 80.

Where will you shop next year?

MyBrilliantDisguise Fri 15-Dec-17 18:07:37

I think you were really rude and a CF. You wouldn't haggle with the richer shops so why do it with a sole trader?
