Yesterday, the War office decided that she would go to the local supermarket (Cole’s) and do some shopping 😈 At the moment, we are in a state of hostilities, so when she asked me what we needed, or I wanted, I replied “Nothing!” or words to that effect. Normally, when she toddles off to the shops, I write out a shopping list for her; I’m pretty good at doing that! I like to make things easy for her. 👿
She likes to walk there, towing the trolley she received as a present, from I don’t know who; I know it wasn’t me, I’m not into that sort of nonsense.
It’s a very nice trolley 😛 and the distance is not that great; just over half a kilometre.
When the War Office arrived home, there wasn’t much in it, the trolley that is; she didn’t have a ‘list’; but she did bring me the usual weekly ‘catalogue’, that Cole’s put out, listing all the specials, which are not that special, so being pretty bored with the book that I’m currently trying to get my head into, I decided to see what was on offer.
A couple of pages in I came upon this add:
As you see, they have some stuff called ‘Quick Cups’ brown rice; I don’t know what I’d do with this stuff, but I was intrigued with the pricing, as no doubt you will be, too.
Cole’s were having a BAD day, their parent company, Westfarmers, had just declared a 58% I think it was, drop in their profit; down some couple of billion dollars or some such figure.
Can you wonder why?
Would I be correct, in labelling this, false advertising?
Further on in this ‘catalogue, I came across a heart stopping ad, I started to shake, and tremble in fear of an invasion, from the Sandwich Isles or Colorado via Alaska’!
That’s enough of this nonsense
Naturally, I was tempted to instruct the War Office to dash back, with her trolley, and to fill up with this stuff, before they sold out.
And then I came to my senses!
