The Meeting Place

Come on Aldi - size matters!

I’m a big fan of Aldi, but its latest move has me puzzled. When I shop, I like to know the details of what I’m buying – the ingredients, in particular the quantities of sugar and salt, and is the product wholly Australian grown and made? I’m sorry, but there have been too many reports of serious illness originating from non-Australian frozen fruits and vegetables to not want to know. So labels are important, labels that I can read without the need to carry a magnifying glass. Aldi has started phasing in smaller labels on its products in all stores across Australia. The size of the type has shrunk from five point to three point and bold words are now normal font. The result? For some people, the labels will be impossible to read. And there will be few staff on hand to help. Come on Aldi, think again.

So let's get this right Cats, you mean to say that if any of the ladies here were to shop at Aldi and happen to bump into your hubby they would find someone with an odd looking tool that's likely never to be used?. Can't believe that one! You have to be kidding, what's the poor guy done to deserve that?? So you believe that size and possibly shape of a tool really does matter?? lol...........Cheers!

HA HA SAGEMAN,    just saw you post,   i havent been on for a couple of days,     as for hubby and his tool.[    im saying NOTHING,     thats for me to know,  and NO ONE else to find out,    lol,,   as for size and shape,    OF COURSE it matters,    ask EBONY,    

Good to hear fom you cats, so funny as usual !! I'm so surprised that you remembered Ebony after all this time! I lost touch with her long ago. Last I heard from her she had returned to Africa and was working at the Serengeti National Park as a tour guide. I do recall though that she often said that dimensions weren't her main concern and that she valued quality and even quantity over eveything else!. A girl like that will never come again! Ah memories! Thanks for reminding me!!

HOW could i forget EBONY  sageman,  after you told us about her,   like her,   im not concerned about 'toes'    or 'kneecaps'     but anything else,  oh yes,   its important,  but then,   its not the tool that matters,   but the job it does,    a good workman looks after his tools,    he cant get far in life without them,           thinking of the 20th,   and fingers crossed,  

Yes cats you're right there. Some things need extra attention and are often overlooked until it's almost too late. Neglect can be the enemy of all of us! I very much appreciate that you are thinking of the 20th and I too am crossing my fingers and everything else but that will only just be the beginning! I will put you in the picture in due course. Que Sera Sera!

YES SAGEMAN,     some tools,  more than others,   need taking care off,   if you want your tool to work proprly,   it needs taking out of its box,  frequently,  and used,    otherwise rust will set in,   and then its hard to get working again,     a good grease and oil change will be needed,  in most cases,       the morale of this story,    DONT let your tool sit idle,
