You know the deal.
You pop out to Lidl for a few bits and you come home with seven kettle bells and a trumpet.
We have all long accepted the fact that it's all to play for as soon as you step foot into any Lidl supermarket.
If you manage to make it through to the check-out with only the items on your shopping list well then you, my friend, have actual magical powers.

Spare a thought for the people who are getting all types of distracted by Lidl's special offer hot tub.
Everytime my mom goes to lidl she comes home with something irrelevant, this time it was a hot tub pic.twitter.com/cluxL9cSif

They just can't cope and customers are snapping them up in huge numbers, and before we know it we will be a nation dotted with inflatable hot tubs.
@lidl_ni Hi, I travelled to 5 stores today between 3pm and 5pm and not 1 "hot tub" left in any store. I was advised that there were none left in NI and to call the customer services. I did, and guess what? ANSWER MACHINE. Thankyou LIDL.

They are so popular that customers from across the water are starting to demand their fair share of blow-up hot tubs.

You can just tell these are the type of whatsapp conversations happening between housemates around the country.
It's all fun and games until you need to clean the water lads.
