Yeah, sorry about the post-title. No doubt you all know where it's from.

Anyway, it's clear that at least one Tesco employee is both incompetent and baffled when it comes to using our official language:

Maybe a little education would help?

They may have been playing it fast and loose in the changing-rooms but they were hedging their bets in the Seasonal Goods aisle. Who can blame them for catering for a little latitude in the long-range weather forecast for the run-up to Christmas?

Up the aisle


For good days

 For bad days

For Christmas Days

We didn't find the Easter eggs but I'm sure they must be hidden away somewhere at the back.

  1. As a sometime DIYer I am impressed with your observatory - you should have had it featured on Grand Designs. You have set me thinking about possible alternative applications for the concept. Anybody got any ideas?

    The “For bad days snow shovel” on clearance offer at £11.00. Was std purchased by moi from B&Q for £10.00 last year. Every little helps eh!
    My local Tesco car park is always full but when you go in, the store has very few customers. I think they are all in Aldi now.
