As an update to the short series ''Things that the shop should've had but didn't'' I went to Morrison's yesterday. I'd got light bulbs on the list, as I usually buy them there. They weren't in their usual place so I asked an assistant, who immediately took me to the place I'd just looked. She was surprised & asked a colleague. She didn't know either. They asked another colleague. ''Oh, there are none out at the moment - they've been packed away''. The alternative product, on the light bulb shelf, was Easter eggs. Oh well, give it a couple of weeks & I'll be able to buy a pumpkin with a candle in it :roll:
How very crap though.

I had a similar issue in our Morrisons with dishwasher salt. It had turned into washing up liquid.

I'd already let them off a week ago when I was looking for a 3-pin plug & they didn't have any. I put that down to new appliances coming with them already fitted though.

Wilkinson's is the nearest thing to a proper hardware store round here. Still pretty good though. And they sell plugs. Rubber - bathroom - 13 amp ones, of course :wink:

So, apparently, I'm not too old to get drunk and fall over in the garden at 2.30 in the morning. And take all the skin off my elbows. xx

Haha, that's fantastic. ..> Sorry about the elbow part though. An unfortunate rough landing. I may or may not have managed such a thing myself last summer, a lovely temperate night, a very dizzy 3 AM situation, where I found myself just sort of slowly being pulled by gravity, so very gently, into the dewy grass in front of my house.

Me (after a lot of giggling): Did I fall down?
Friend (worriedly): Um, yes. Yes, you did.
*long pause; possible napping*
Me (still delighted): Cool.

Old people, amirite?

Spent half an hour looking for a particular screwdriver in the garage yesterday. Finally found it on the roof beam. :eh?

Just managed to shut my penknife on the end of my finger. Resulting in a very small cut, completely disproportionate to the amount of fuss I shall be obliged to make about it later. :geek:

Why are modern plasters so utterly, utterly crap? Stick one on & it falls off within ten minutes. Found some ancient fabric plasters in the cupboard & they're far superior.

Thought of a new music genre, featuring really bad wordplay. Pun Rock.
