There is actually a grain of truth to this. I was 'Roy Morganed' so to speak in the weeks leading to my departure. The endless surveys involved much more consumerism than politics and social issues.

They knocked. When the guy introduced himself I almost jumped and gave him a four limbed hug. Taking part in these things is the closest we get to direct democracy.

Winter is approaching and with it the longer nights and the temperatures are dropping.
I do not like winter and I am wondering if abolishing this season is part of the mods 'fix it' brief.

here we are a bit later from the original post and now the marketing strategy has changed to the '1/2 price' face. I've noticed that say in the case of pepsi max, the pricing was 1.25l for say $1.50 and 'special' was $1.

now, 1/2 price is $1.10 and full price is $2.20 something. another layer to this is that a week after the 1/2 price week, they special the same product for 30% off. so we have, week 1 - 1/2 price, week 2 - 30% off then, full price.

bit of a head bang if you ask me. and if you did (ask me) I'd say, give me the old way.

but there is a much better alternative, Aldi where the prices are a lot cheaper.

I take issue with Coles because the "prices are down, down etc" when one of their items is priced 'down', four go up. They got busted recently with their 'baked on the premises' bread which was imported from Ireland, then finished (put in a oven) at the store. The bread's innards were full of large holes which made it unusable.

oh hangon! update! 20/10/2012 shopping at coles.

Prices are down range.. there were many examples of prices in Coles having gone up during the week, their own brand mixed veges, last week $3.07 kg bag, this week $3.89 that's $0.82 or 26.7%.


I'd better go out and check what the status on the mixed vegetables prices.

back in a couple of minutes..

I have noticed when theres a "special price" in any of the chains if you look under the special price tag the old price is there. sometimes its lower.
