Sorry about that. Unfortunately some things can't easily be described in two lines and words of one syllable.

I could write a book about all the examples I have seen of that in my working life. The high level of management incompetence in our...

Not ALL no-name brands. Some are made by no-name contract packagers who make these items for various stores. Some are made by factories...

Maybe the correct term is ovoid chocolate. Eggs aren't round, they're ovoid.

In the old days most bakeries used to sell fruit buns. The only difference between them was that they stuck a flour and water cross on them...

Thanks. My guess when I checked it out at the store was around that figure.

Did anyone purchase one of the Aldi Wheeled Backpacks from a couple of weeks ago? If so, can you tell me what it weighs? I can go back to...

I've bid the minimum a couple of times and got it, but for short flights it's not really worth it in my humble opinion. I usually book...

Supermarkets need the physical coupons to return to the manufacturer for reimbursement as I understand the process in the US. Might be...

I doubt we would ever see it here. The supermarkets would hate it as it would take too much time to process customers and they would need...

We rarely, if ever, see coupons like that here in Oz. On my trips to the US years ago, I used to be amazed at the amount of coupons stuffed...
