Mid Week Rant - Stuck for Choice?
Or shall I be brave and go to Checkers where the fresh produce varies from frot to very frot and you are guaranteed an unpleasant odour around the meat counter.Where the cashier hardly greets you, the conveyor belt is out of order and there is no packer!
Perhaps I should splash out and visit Spar - where the fresh produce is fresh although the choice is limited - but they do have imported biscuits that only cost an arm and a leg as do a lot of their products. If I buy only the fresh stuff and the specials then I will have to visit PnP or Checkers for the rest.
If I had won the lottery over the holiday, I would be able to do a guilt-free shop at Woollies. Where everything looks fresh and yummy the ready meals shout 'eat me' as I walk past the fridge. Alas I didn't inherit a fortune nor am I prepared to 'put it on the card' and, although the quality of everything is tip top, so is the price and I know there will be a lot of month left at the end of the money!
Decisions - Decisions! I would give anything to be able to shop at Asda, Sainsbury's or even Aldo and Morrisons.
We are so being ripped off in this country when it comes to freshness, food prices and customer service ! I will definately be having a strong cup of coffee with my breakfast - a calmette and practice a little deep breathing before I set off. Oh and I mustn't forget the bags - or I will get ripped off for those too!!!!
