So you decide you want to get milk delivered to your doorstep. Like how it used to be in the good old days. How do you go about it then?

Ah yes, the milkman. Glass bottles, foil tops and electric milk floats silently trawling the neighbourhood.
I hadn't expected to go into a Woolworths before "the end" but I found myself having just left the Halifax in Tooting and decided to visit the one other the road - a one last time event.
I feel I should go and mourn. The demise of Woolworths is an end of an era.
Thank you Curry's. You have reminded me why I don't do much of my electronic based shopping in stores any more. It makes me annoyed. You have made what should be a pleasant experience, a plain awful one. You have made me annoyed.
Please place your item in the bagging area
The new TV has arrived which is good - watching episodes on Futurama on your laptop PC just isn't the same if you ask me. It's an IDTV - integrated with digital. I did contemplate going for a cheaper model without the digital element (actually in the clearence range) but due to delivery issues (i.e. they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered), decided to get the digital one. Analogue TVs are getting harder and harder to find now - and it has to be said, rightly so.
What happened to the days when things lasted? I'm sure they existed. I remember owning a TV for about 12 years - and it got transported around the country a few times to boot... Sadly it doesn't seem to happen very often any more. Just two months short of being five years old, and my TV has decided to give up the ghost.

Only a complete simpleton would put the stuff they're trying to steel right in front of the cashier in the first place.
