"Today your order will be delivered by Jesus in the Cabbage van"

You don't get the son of god delivering groceries for just any supermarket.

I had Mohammed in a strawberry Van yesterday but jesus in a cabbage van definitely wins

Well, last Saturday we were visited by Willock in the Courgette van, I have also had Marcos in Strawberry and Okie in Lemon. But Jesus is yet to make an appearance - maybe this weekend?!

Stratters Tue 03-Apr-12 16:28:11

Ocado doesn't deliver out here sad

This week we had our food delivered by Ian in the cabbage van, sadly not Jesus.

There is also a Courgette, lemon & strawberry van here

"I had Jesus" [weeps]

I must say, I've been giggling about it all day. Naturally I have a screenshot of the text message for posterity.

I ave had the same driver more than once but not for a long time. It was always the same man a couple of years ago.

Never had Jesus before though.

Pray harder, Strattters, and Jesus may appear in his cabbage van.

oh man, that tops my delivery last week "Keith in the Lemon Meringue Van" brought mine, but YOU got Jesus! grin

I nearly forgot - he told me that he trains new drivers. Thus Ocado drivers are trained by Jesus.

Which explains why the service of out of this world.

<prays hard>

S'not going to work, I shall just envy you and your Jesus in his cabbage van.

I'm waiting for my delivery right this moment. Jesus has 25 mins left to get busy with the bread and fishes.

cronsilksilt Tue 03-Apr-12 16:37:57

it's here - green bubbles

Shame you didn't see the message before, you could have wished him luck for Friday.

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 16:40:36

Trust me - it's best that I didn't know grin. He must hate this time of year.

emmanana Tue 03-Apr-12 16:43:07

When I had Mohammed, he was driving potato van.
( I am very sad, I keep all the ocado texts )

Stratters Tue 03-Apr-12 17:08:43

I am so, so jealous of you all and your van driving deities. sad

I am absolutely ordering from ocado this week.

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 17:12:49

A few of thoughts:
Do you think it is possible to collect a full set of disciples?
Is there scope for a game of Bible Bingo?
Has anyone had Jehova?

Stratters Tue 03-Apr-12 17:14:20

Buddha in the Banana van maybe?

MightyNice Tue 03-Apr-12 17:16:11

how come mine is delivered by Rupert in a plain white Waitrose van? sad

(no offence Rupert but that is our ferret's name and he is much better looking than you)

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 17:16:14

Peter in the Pickle van?

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 17:16:57

Might it be Rupert the Bear?
[clutches at straws]

Just looked back at all my Ocado texts, two biblical ones:

Jakub in Strawberry van

best of all Adam in Apple van

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 17:18:20

Adam Apple! [snort]

tinierclanger Tue 03-Apr-12 17:20:24

Never had Jesus but I've had Emmanuel in Strawberry van!

ooo. This is why it sucks being poor. You'd not catch the Messiah in Lidl. sad

I am using Jesus in the cabbage van as my new expletive, ta muchly.
