All that glitters

Am I the only person to detest the ubiquitous "cash for gold" adverts?

With the arrival of LittleLanky, we've been watching more tv than usual (because we're at home more), and the credit crunch seems to have spawned a proliferation of jewellery buyers; these seem to have taken the place of the "have you been injured at work?" adverts.

Although I concede that, primarily, I find these ads irritating, my point here is that I can't imagine who they're aimed at. I also can't imagine many people are sending in their big hoop earrings and heart shaped pendants.

Hopefully, as we climb out of recession, they will disappear as quickly as they arrived on our screens.
