To what number?

Hmm, approximately 4/5 I think. Whatever you/Thompers think is best.[/s]

I don't really like Asda, the thought of giving my cash to Americans when there are alternatives annoys me.

Have you tried their sandwiches, baguettes etc... p*ss all over Tesco tbh!

Morrisons beef and onion baguettes, tbh.

Pah, I laugh in the face of Onion filled lunch snacks!

I like Iceland but all my local ones have closed down in favour of Marks and Spencers foodstores :(

M&S do lovely food mind.

The three shops I mainly use.

Sainsburys at High Heaton, Morrisons on Shields Road and then for topping up, Somerfield on Chillingham Road.

Perhaps that's because they got bought out by Morrisons... :doh:

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

I was a bit disappointed there wasn't a FineFare or Lipton's option. Not to mention Gateway. And no mention of SPAR? Outrageous.

I like Tesco's chicken ceasar wraps. If you really want a quality sandwich get yourself down to good old expensive Waitrose.

None of that s**** up here lad.  :hmm:

Nah, they don't bother with us, because they're racists.

They all wear flat caps and have wippets. They've got no money.
Why on earth would Waitrose want to open up in the dirty, grim north?

That's what they think you know. The North should break away.

There's a Waitrose in Durham.

Care to reconsider your view now?

No. One Waitrose in a town that is a Southern enclave.

Actually, come to think of it, Waitrose did probably only locate there because of the high population of Rah students, tbh. ;)

on the evidence of today (quarter pounder with cheese) and a few weeks ago (full Scottish breakfast) I conclude that I would rather eat pan fried diseased Yak carcass than anything else from a Morrisons cafe

and they charge 5p for a sachet of ketchup! Tight Yorkshire w*****s
