I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Flicking through the Tesco Photobook I ordered of my elective in Canada, which arrived this morning, I note that many of the scenes are unfamiliar. All of them, in fact. The pictures are largely of Alie’s 90th birthday – or at least, I think they are. It’s hard to tell, because the text is in German… And the picutres, apparently, are set in Germany. The cover was right, the inside wasn’t mine. Tesco assure me they’ll sort it. We’ll see.

I thought that the fact that it was from Tesco would have immediately connoted the fact that it’ll be trash or the wrong one altogether.

That seems a little harsh… is there a story behind your dislike?

Actually, they’ve done a pretty good job of sorting it out, and were most apologetic – which is better than most companies of Tesco’s size.

Well, I have a Tesco mobile. It’s effectively a cobranded O2 thing, and Tesco have zilch online support, their phone support is patronising and costs 5p a minute, and normally leaves you with a robot. And their marketing texts just won’t stop, even though I’ve phoned, Emailed and written to them.
