Now this is a rant..when the fck did rice noodles become a substitute for  beansprouts???? 


Asda is going to the dogs....I put it down to incomprehension of a  Russian /Latvian/ Polish / Hungarian /Ukranian....or maybe an illiterate  web footed fenner   :O


I am on shaky ground with illiterate , but I can read ,,even if i cant spell...


I am lucky the cream eclairs were not subbed with custard donuts ,they deff had to go back !!!!!!


On the plus side tho i got the cheap dog tuna tins subbed for nice chunks  :smiley: this will keep Fifty Shades of Black happy (Lily the Dominatrix) she likes a nice tin of Tuna :smiley:

All depends on which underpaid spotted school leaver is doing the shopping list for you!

I've usually always been happy with substitutions. They've generally always been equal or better value. Like I've ordered cheap smart price something, and they've substituted it with a branded one or something.

I ordered some cheap prawns once, and they substituted it with some massive king prawns that were about 3 times the price!

I did phone up a couple of times with stuff like Ham with a use by date of 2 days or tomorrow or something, and they've just refunded it no questions asked.

Maybe I've just been lucky.

Well as a rule they have always been good, as you say Mike  most often thier better than one orders. However we do suffer if this is the correct word from a rather general low IQ in this county , its not entirely right to blame those who are immigrants  .Tho we do have a great many of them in Boston where the store resides .


We had an incidence some time ago where an illegal vodka still blew up killing a couple of people , i do not wish to sound like Mr Farage but they do tend top live like they do over there over here. Immigration is good but we havent got room for every tom dick or harry who has no qualifications , i dont blame the people just trying to better themselves i blame the system .


My parents emigrated to Australia and how many OAP`s bugger off to Spain and live in wrinkly ghetto`s?



Its common sense to replace one product with the same of a greater or less value , or 2 smaller when one larger is ordered . However this does not happen...


Yeah i guess I do get pissed off easily but its so damn stupid .


In comparison tho if something big happens i just shrug my shoulders and get on with it .


Can you imagine Ivan Maris and Vladimir  sitting in Asda`s tea room pulling out straws as to who gets to go to the mad woman in number 4 ?  Having said that tho every driver has been a "fenner" , or web footed bog dweller as us southerners call them  ..OK hands up that was regionist   :undecided:

I say I'm going for a gander, or have a butchers at this, I also say I'm off for  a ham roll (this confuses people as they think I'm going for some food!)
I might be back....
