Waitrose Duchy Organic

"Waitrose Duchy Organic" said the prominent label on the pack of tomatoes.
Oh, good, I thought, hiding the extortionate price from the rest of my mind.
"Country of origin: Spain" only came to my attention after I had paid for them and carried them home.
At roughly twice the price of Thanet Earth tomatoes from Tesco (Origin: Kent, England, and picked when already red) I feel cheated, and shall not be buying tomatoes in Waitrose again.
Caveat emptor, even in Waitrose.

True, but the point of waitrose food is not the price nor the quality. It's the wonderful feeling one receives knowing you're in a shop without all the riff-raff who have to shop at those ghastly supermarkets from across the river.

Have you actually been in Waitrose???
It's full of retarded people paying more for less, also the place is a state covered in half empty boxes and cages of stock waiting to be stacked on the shelves. Plus a gaggle of old fogies all getting their free coffee (and treating the end of the checkouts as some sort of makeshift café).
Don't even get me started on the poor parking situation or the number of mobility vehicles in the store.
If that's your idea of "no riff raff" I'll have to question whether you know what riff raff even means (it doesn't mean poor people).

Don't you have to have a B.A. in Art History to work on the checkouts?

Yes, those free coffee people are a bunch of losers. It's like a soup kitchen for middle class people.

Waitrose is rubbish. I bought some Kellogg's Rice Crispies in there the other day and the snap crackle and pop that came from them was inaudible.

I must say I was quite surprised to find out that they'd run out of Unicorn milk on Wednesday too.

I have to admit that I just don't understand the coffee and shopping thing, when did it get to be trendy ? Everyone used to shop quite happily without a coffee, in fact it's easier !
I drink coffee when I sit down and relax, not when I'm shopping.

I believe the freebie coffee tends to come after the shopping.

Waitrose are promoting a nasty, addictive, drug habit. We should be outraged!! OUTRAGED!
