Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Spent most of the day dealing with the fallout of the OH falling over in the bathroom at 6am and cracking his noggin so hard that required a trip to the emergency department and 7 stitches in his scalp. Could have done without the old I’m a tough old retired matelot attitude that stopped him going to the hospital until I photographed his 3 inch wound.

Hope the fearless warrior is OK this morning. Husbands <<sigh>>
<<<<<hugs>>>>> to you both.

My pet hate is having to defrost both freezers. Got it down to a fine art but still have to wait for the first one to get down to the right level before I can decant everything across and attack the second one. Can't leave them unattended as John insists on 'helping'.


He's off out with his mates for the day tomorrow so hopefully I can put up the Christmas Tree and decorations and save him having to 'help' me. No doubt he will still need to tweak the lights but a large G&T will help me relax while I listen to his critique.

Good idea to get any major head impact checked for concussion even without obvious injury.

I just stick it all in a big cardboard box. It's fine for a couple of hours.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Next door neighbours lost their 6 week old baby Friday night. I can not imagine what they are going through. They are such a lovely couple. There is no rhyme or reason to life so very very sad. Certainly puts my worries about the cost of living in perspective for sure

I know what it's like Maggy, having been wakened several times over the last 2 years in the middle of the night with Mr T's seizures, and to nurse him when he broke his femur in July. I hope your old man is soon back to his old self again.x

Devastating news for sure for that couple and family, life can be very cruel sometimes, Jay.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Because of finding doing a large supermarket shop once a week such hard work as an OAP I turned to online ordering. However as the pickers have again and again proven that they don't really know what they are doing I regularly have to refuse items. Roast potatoes instead of chips? 10 fish fingers instead of 30? 8 mature less fat cheese slices instead of 10 MILD cheese slices?

Yes I guess it does sound petty BUT it does mean I have to go out and actually buy what I want which is what I was trying to avoid.

Never mind the 10 other substitutions I will accept because it just makes me have to go out and buy in person if I don't.Which would defeat the whole point of ordering online.

Sorry for the rant.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

you can add notes to the items or un tick subs for some products. Ocado for a lot of products even let you give a sub option on the order

As I recall, Asda let you set substitution products (as well as turn them off).

High turnover of staff for these jobs. My son did it for a bit. Getting up at 5am for little more than min wage for a few hours work isn't very attractive. Plus high pressure from the management if you don't do enough picks an hour means they shove anything to hand in. He lasted a couple of weeks like most staff.

I just hand them back.

My biggest bugbear is that I have always chosen Asda products because they are cheaper and just as good as popular brands but everyone seems to have cottoned on to this fact recently and as a consequence I seem to be farmed off with popular branded items.Luckily they have to be offered at the cheaper price.

I don't see how they can screw up?


My nieces best friend is a picker in Tesco, if you order say an 8 pack of Richmond sausages, but pick a different 8 pack the scanner makes a weird noise and they have to re do.
