And even sadder, earlier this week, a small 250g pack of chicken breasts in my local Sainsbos had a security tag on it. A small pack of chicken, ffs. I see that the Trussell Trust is now advertising on the telly for cash donations, this is miles easier than trying to remember to add extra items to your trolley to put in the food bank trolley.
Finally, and in contrast, just now in a large-ish Waitrose near me, the entire fresh meat aisle was empty. As was the cheese aisle, just like it was at the weekend. I did ask if this was related to the story above and was told no, just poor supply problems. A cashier told me the head of logistics had come from Head Office last week and attempted to do her shopping while she was there, well let’s hope she was as unlucky as the rest of their shoppers, if they dont sort this they are out of business. So, a First World problem for minkie, but my goodness I honestly dont care about that right now, I am thinking about that little pack of chicken labelled as an item people might be tempted to steal. 🥺
