Well spotted - not that I'd be over sympathetic if it were true

Re: Credit Crunch Hits Major Supermarket!

How ironic. The way I feel right now about Tesco I wish it was Tesco in that shot. Just been involved with email dialogue with them over the past week for selling shark fins in their stores worldwide.............. they're not in my good book at the moment

I didn't realise they sold shark fins, but if there's enough money in it I'm not suprised. My impression of Tesco is that their morality extends as far as the profit and loss column on the balance sheet.

It is apposite if akin to cannabilism for them to be selling sharks fin.

I only wait for the return of the potato famine for them to launch a range of boil in the bag children.

Strange thing about Tescos - nearly everybody claims to dislike them - but where did you go for your groceries?

HaHa! You've touched a nerve there! We do mainly use Tesco but only because where we live it's the only supermarket within 10 miles. I'm thinking of writing to Morrisons, begging them to deliver us from evil by opening a store in our town!

Just why Tesco is so popular and successful is one of the mysteries of the Universe!

Didn't know their range included the flitch?

Do you get extra clubcard points every four years?

Huh! It's almost the same here.

There used to be a Morrisons and Waitrose, then Morrisons was sold off and the big store was taken over by Waitrose and we ended up with Marks and Spencer Food as well.

The "local" Tesco used to be on two sites it was brilliant, then "they" closed one and downgraded the other to a Metro, which was closed all September for upgrading. The shelves are always half empty because so many people shop there. Can't understand why they wouldn't take over the empty Waitrose, but there's a bigger store about eight miles away, so I suppose they didn't want it to have local competition.

We do though have an excellent street market on Saturdays, which is something of a life-saver. There's a butcher, greengrocers and a fish stall as well as all the other usual stuff.

Oops, forgot about the picture.

It made me chuckle, which can't be a bad thing
