I’m always being rude about Morrisons, so props to them for offering a great lunch deal.
Posh sandwiches, a posh drink, and a dessert or pie or fruit is a good deal for £3.
It’s just weird that the store itself is laid out like the home of an alcoholic.
Everywhere you turn, there are great big piles of booze.
I sometimes have to go into the Welsh Government office in Aber, and despite rumours to the contrary, the meals are neither subsidised or interesting.
The sandwiches are particularly bad, so I always bring my own, or pop into Morrisons.
Most meal deals exclude the nice stuff, so I was pleased that theirs includes their excellent but expensive £2.64 ones:
The drinks range is quality too, with fizzy ones for that sort of person, a range of fruit juices and smoothies (including premium brand Innocent) and either a dessert (choc brownies are good), a pair of decent mini pork pies or the acceptable vegetable samosa.
There’s even those little bags of fruit for those people who can’t just eat an apple.
The only downside of going to Morrisons is that reminds me of living with an alcoholic.
Everywhere you look are great piles of booze, even in places you wouldn’t normally expect it.
Shops traditionally put fresh fruit and veg at the front.
This is to make you think you are in a healthy, fresh sort of a place.
You never see toilet rolls when you first walk into a shop.
Morrisons bucks the trend by adding booze.
Salad and wine?
There is an actual booze department – four aisles of it.
There is – and I speak as a drinker myself – plenty of booze to be found in Morrisons normally.
There cannot be many people, lost souls, wandering the aisles, who can’t find the booze.
So why does it need to be piled up around fridges too – to insulate them?
OK, I know it’s Christmas, and the boffins at Morrisons HQ have data-mined that this is a popular time to drink alcohol.
And some of the stuff on offer is decent -two Marlborough Sauvingnon Blancs for £10 is good deal.
But it would be nice to be able to walk round a shop without a maniac trying to force booze on me.
Just because I trivialise alcoholism doesn’t make it any less unpleasant.
Morrisons needs to try cutting down before it develops a problem.
