Yes, YABU. For some of us it's our only option. Imagine how that feels.

To think that people who actually give a damn where people shop have a big chip on their shoulder.....

I adore Waitrose - it's the first place I visit when I come to England!

No I lurve Waitrose.

We go to Asda on a Saturday because it is nearby to ds's swim lessons. My dc and dh refer to it lovingly as "chaville". Please note it was them that made up the title NOT ME.

YABU and rude.

Just not OK to draw conclusions about people based solely on where they shop

Asdashopper Mon 01-Nov-10 20:56:57

The Asda thread was not rude then

ladylush Mon 01-Nov-10 20:57:15

lol at Ewe grin I wish it were my only option! I wouldn't feel so guilty then. Waitrose is my guilty pleasure wink

Waitrose customers are all bastards. A man in the pub told 'me.

Does it count if you just get your bits there?

ladylush Mon 01-Nov-10 21:00:02

No cos then you're a wannabe waitrose shopper and that's even worse grin

how do you know they're pretentious prats if you've never been?

juneybean Mon 01-Nov-10 21:01:12

Yabu to call them pretentious prats, but I understand what you're getting at. I'm getting mildy hacked off at the double standards on MN lately.
