To think that there should not be (another) hair in my ready meal from a relatively posh supermarket?

So, this afternoon I bought a more expensive type ready meal from the upmarket orange type supermarket and there was a hair in it.
WWYD bearing in mind two months ago there was a hair in a bag of poppadoms I bought from the green type supermarket. I sent them back and they sent a very nice apology and a ten pound voucher. To be honest the letter of apology would have been better on its own. Bearing in mind all the terrible publicity pre packaged food has had of late a ten pound voucher seemed lame.
Bin and who cares or what?
And no I didn't finish my meal.

Hair or mushroom fibre? I only ask becuase in my distant past I worked for a compnay that made ready meals and they'd get returns which were ALWAYS bloody mushroom bloody fibres and not hairs. AND they were a PITA to sort out....
Actually is odd to get stuff lke that in packaged meals as they're typically made on production lines with plastic-clad workers.

Is Sainsburys supposed to be upmarket?
I didn't think any supermarket that felt the need to have a finest/taste the difference/whatever wanky name they have chosen type range could be considered upmarket.
I'd be happy with the voucher. Buy stuff other than ready meals with it.

Ivy - Heating something up in a microwave isn't cooking and no Mary - I hate ready meals with a passion - I'll only eat something that I have seen been prepared and cooked (not heated up!)
Seriously though - how long does it take to grill a piece of fish? A chicken breast? Cook some rice with some veggies?
