to be fuming at this substition suggested by supermarket staff?

(78 Posts)

I sent DD2 into Lidl to get feta for supper.

They didn't have any and so she stood there looking perplexed.

The assistant asked if she could help? DD" explained the situationa nd came out clutching mozzarella.

Who on earth suggests that as an adequate replacement for Feta?

Am I Brieing Unreasonable?

I think you are being very mature about it, I don't think I would be so mild. He would be apologising through a medium.

Buzzardbird Wed 17-Apr-13 22:48:43

What does cheese say when it sees itself in a mirror?

" Well Halloumi"

Maybe you just need to Bruss this under the carpet now Chaos and leave it.

Hopefully dinner was Stilton after this Appalacian mountain of a mistake

No cheese would ever Brie a good substitute to feta. It's almost cream-inal behaviour.

I bet you were all fetap fed up and oh so irate ossau-iraty

Camem Pom bert, anyone? bear

I once ordered SALMON. I was given GAMMON as a substitute. I do not eat pork. I don't think you can beat that.

I was looking for Jam on the online supermarket and it "helpfully" noted "similar searches: ham". Erm, only in the one-letter-different sense.

Anyway, re OP, Yarg what a dreadful situation to find yourself in! Had the shop assistant double G loucester mind?

I was substituted toothpaste for razors once...

Cabbage, I bet your armpits are all fresh and minty and you are saving a ton on deodorant.

Gerrof Wed 17-Apr-13 23:35:48

Hahaha at you were being uncheeseonable.

I can't think of a funny pun so can't join in with you silly tossers

SirBoobAlot Wed 17-Apr-13 23:40:44

Feta not get wound up by it, though.

I'll bet it's really grating on you, your lack of punnage, GetO.

Viviennemary Wed 17-Apr-13 23:42:57

Feta cheek they had.

How do you coax a bear down a mountain?

Camembert!

I bet that wasn't fondue, I would be playing merry emmental.

I'm grin at the shop manager being a "babybell end" and grin grin at giving them Roquefort!

Unfortunately not half as quick witted as you funny lot so I have nothing to add to the comedy value of the thread.

Stop with the cheesy jokes.

I ordered lemon nut free muffins. Baked in a nut free environment, guaranteed nut free and I got walnut muffins.

frutilla Thu 18-Apr-13 00:14:29

I guess you mas-carp-on-e 'bout it...

I would have gone emmental. Feta farkin liberty.
