The Anonymous Widower

Am I The Supermarkets Worst Customer?

There has been a lot of reports lately about misleading special offers in supermarkets, like this one in the Independent.

As I’m a 67-year-old widower living alone, who because I don’t drive, has to carry everything home from the supermarket, I only rarely buy any bogofs, but then only with something that doesn’t have sell-by date like washing tablets, soap, tissues or bottles of cider or olive oil.

If I’m cooking a casserole that needs one onion, one carrot, a leek and say two hundred grams of mince then that is what I buy.

I also have given up on fresh herbs and use the dried ones in pots , as I don’t like throwing the unused ones away.

As I regularly complain about the bags in Waitrose at the Angel, they must consider me a bad customer, especially as I usually enter with a half-full bag of bread, biscuits and lemonade from the Marks and Spencer next door.

  1. Sometimes I drop the free one of the bogofs into the food bank, but it almost on my way home, and I am driving.
