Sucker for a deal

In the place I work there are not a lot to do at lunch. We have a Lidl, Waitrose, Iceland, Boots, Wilkinsons plus small stores most of which you wouldnt dare walk into in case you are transported to the village from The League of Gentlemen and never leave.

While I quite like all the shops the one I spend most time in is Waitrose. I think they get deliveries on Mondays and Wednesdays cause I can always find stuff on sale those days. Today was no exception so I got two Perfectly Ripe Avocados, some broccoli and Taleggio all on sale. Perfectly Ripe is the concept they use to sell us stuff that is actually the way all fruit and veg should always be sold, but this way they can charge extra for it. Its also always super packaged so I am feeling a bit guilty (A - I am sorry...). The two avocados were lovingly protected by a paper 'bath' and wrapped in plastic. But they were on sale! Rude not to.

And to make sure Mr Brown doesnt tell me off I promise to eat it all, except maybe the broccoli as I dont really like it.

I commend you on your wise choice. You qualify for an MBE.

Yours, Mr Brown.

PS. Whilst I am telling people not to waste food, I am scoffing caviar!
