Cheese boards ffs light hearted
88

Anonmummyoftwo · 04/10/2021 19:15

Has the cheese board obsession taken over everywhere or just where I live. In the past month iv had at least 8 people try talk me into buying a cheese board off them, I don’t even like cheese. Iv just had a girl I went to school with message me saying she’s doing them and a bloody price list, I ignored the messages. If I tell them I don’t like cheese they try convince me to at least try. The prices are mad and if I really wanted one I could get the stuff in Tesco for half the price.
Has the cheese boards taken over everywhere or do different areas have different fads?

People trying to sell you cheese boards as in actual cheese selections, not just a wooden board?
If so, I presume it’s the latest branching out of sweet boxes / munchie boxes / afternoon tea / picnic boxes.
I think you can’t blame people for trying to make a living, if they try to sell in a way that’s not intrusive or aggressive.
I’d be cheesed off with them trying to persuade me though!
Could they brie any ruder?
I Camembert pushy salespeople.

Although if you say no they should leave you alone. Maybe retaliate with Juiceplus or homemade Christmas gonks?

At least they won’t be selling you stale sweets in a cardboard box. Cheese is a step up.

God yes. I’ve swerved my acquaintance who is heavily into scentsy or however the fuck you spell it.

I might reconsider if she was selling cheese.

Jeez around here it's "grazing boards" they look absolutely fucking putrid. Bits of chopped up pork pie stuffed next to grapes, with a few twirls thrown in.
The women selling them look like absolute swanky cows you wouldn't lodge a dog with.
If FB wasn't fuxked I'd find you a picture.
The Huns seem to be buying them, I wonder if it's something to do with buying each others crap in order to claim to be self employed for some reason. I really can't fathom it.

I can honestly, hand on heart say that in my 36 years of life, no one has ever actively tried to sell me cheese. I've bought cheese, sure, but I've never had a hard cheese sell. Im borderline offended.
