Let Them Eat Mouldy Bread

Sainsbury’s, I am disgusted with you. Absolutely disgusted.

No. No. Don’t even attempt to apologize. It’s too late now and this has happened too many times in the past for me to be able to stomach another one of your grovelling, boot sole licking attempts at contrition.

What do you care, anyway? As long as you get my money each week you’re laughing all the way to the bank.

Never mind that yet again the bread we bought “fresh” from you on Sunday is already mouldy!

I’ve lost count of how many times this has happened. What amazes me most is that (due to lack of a bread bin and lack of space) we store our bread in the fridge. So how can it be going mouldy in three days?

Either your workers are fingering my thick cut slices before I purchase them or your bakers are doing unsavoury things with my dough.

Well thank you, Mr Sainsbury, for yet another mid-week noon break saddled with an empty lunchbox.

You can stick Jamie Oliver right up between your yeasty buns.

There's nothing worse than getting your hands on some soft, white baps only to find that they've already been handled. It's enough to give you a cob on...

Old Cheeser said...

Personally I wouldn't know about handling baps - outside my remit.

But come now Steve, it's not the end of the world, matey! Just a bit of mouldy old bread! Why don't you try Tesco instead?

I still haven’t forgiven Sainsbury’s for dropping my DVD of “The Spy Who Loved Me” on the floor before I’d even paid for it!

Also, I notice on Sainsbury’s commercial for the new Bryan Ferry CD that they’re only offering it for £9.77 in selected stores. Selected stores? What’s all that about?!! Which ones specifically and why the discrimination? I don’t want to pay more than somebody else for it, good though it is!!!

I know exactly what you mean, Tris, old chum - I was so shocked I let my buttered buns slip right through my fingers!

Tesco are trying to take over the entire country, Old Cheeser - I refuse to collaborate with them and their awful "blue and white stripe" cheap brand propaganda!

Mind you from what Timewarden has said, Sainsbury's are showing distinct Nazi-esque leanings: just where are these uber-stores that sell discounted products to the select few?

We've had the same trouble with Milk from Morrisons,going off days before it should do !

Steve said...

This means war! Burn down the supermarkets! Liberate the cornershop!

Glenda Young said...

Shop at Morrisons. Not only will you save about 1/3rd off your Sainsburys bill but their bread is usually mould-free.

Thanks for the tip, Nora - funnily enough, my mother (who lives in Sheffield) said exactly the same thing.
