Fun Online Polls: Valentine's Day & Buying from Your Landlord

Posted on the 24 February 2015 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

The responses to The Stigler's Fun Online Poll were as follows:
What did you get for Valentine's Day?
A card - 11 votes
Chocolates - 2 votes
An evening out - 3 votes
Champagne - 2 votes
Flowers - 0 votes
Sex - 9 votes
Other, please specify - 3 votes
Nothing - 58 votes

There were 79 voters, 58 got nothing and 21 got 30 items in total.
So now we know.
Last year, our landlord decided to chuck us out and sell the house.
Being too lazy to move and having given up hope of there being a house price crash, we put in a cheeky offer which was accepted. So the thought experiment which helps us demolish a lot of "Killer Arguments Against LVT" is quite real in my case.
I was chatting about this to somebody at work and he told me he'd once bought from his landlord, and a longstanding YPP accomplice did it a year or two ago. So out of a very small and totally unrepresentative sample, that's three people.
So maybe it is quite common?
To find out, that's this week's Fun Online Poll.
