I was in a well-known 'supermarket' in chorlton the other day. I'm sure you know it, it's the one that has difficulty keeping its shelves stocked. They've got a 'Christmas Aisle' already. In September! Am I alone in thinking this is early even for the 21st century???

Yesterday I bought a chicken pie from the execrable Safeways on B-M Road.
I got it home and discovered Pork in the ingredients, so I took it back - they refused it because I'd had it out of the store more than 20 minutes.
That's the law - fair enough.
But how disgusting that they put Pork - offensive culturally/religiously to many including me - in chicken products.
And how disgusting that they haven't got enough nous (?) to refund me as a matter of goodwill.
Safeways Chorlton has always been a dreadful supermarket (my opinion, others' opinion). Roll on more reasons...

please post blog comments to the chorlton.web discussion forum.
Does anyone think it makes sense to replace the Guestbook with an open blog, for example?
