Coles Belconnen is not a supermarket?

By midlife - 21 December 2013 28

My mother-in-law visited Coles Belconnen yesterday morning and inquired whether it sold drying racks for dishes, she could not find them. 

After having to explain what a drying rack was to the young gentleman he said they did not sell them. 

When she queried this asking of another girl might have an idea she was told in no uncertain terms by the young man that “Coles was not a supermarket”! 

My mother-in-law is normally a prim and proper lady but even she said when she got home WTF? 

It begs the question if Coles is not a supermarket WTF is it?

What’s Your opinion?

Boy, the masses are massing in massive numbers to flood Riot-Act with pointless posts and the holiday season has hardly begun.

That’s OK. Coles Belconnen just lost some more customers to the other chains….

Good, cause I shop at Coles Belconnen and I don’t like it when it gets too busy.

They probably want you to waste time, money and add to your carbon footprint by driving to Bunnings – where you will also find lots of other stuff to go in the trolley.

Well since we are talking about the Coles store that is based in Belconnen I’d say it is a place to get booze.

No it doesn’t.

I think your mother-in-law is trying to give you a hint on what she would like for Christmas. You must have given her a really ordinary present last year.

She can get drying racks from $2 shops (e.g. the Reject Shop or Hot Dollar). I guess perhaps the supermarkets feel that they take up too much space for not enough profit?

Sheltered work shop?

A child care facility by the sounds of it.

Option one. Mother in law is getting advanced in her years and gets confused with the conversation when told they don’t sell them in the supermarket and try a department store.

Option two. Staff member no speak good English and had trouble explaining the above to mother in law of advancing years.

Option three. Misunderstood what was being asked for due to poor communication skills of either or both parties.

Anyway, what is the point of writing a post on here about a misunderstanding about where the dish drying racks are? Most normal people would have put it down to that and just wandered on down to the 3 department stores or to woolies to purchase the item then moved on with life.
