Coles Belconnen is not a supermarket?

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?

Quite a while ago, I rear ended someone in my car. The damage to the other car was light, so I didn’t bother lodging a claim with my insurance company. The other party was insured with AAMI, and they quoted the damage to their clients car to be in the $440 range, less than my excess at the time. I recieved the bill from AAMI for $1200. Rang them about it, and the AAMI lady said “A quote is never what you actually pay”

AAMI isn’t a supermarket either…

And that’s why I hate AAMI.

It begs the question…

No it doesn’t.

or, perhaps it does (according to your link):

‘In modern vernacular usage, to beg the question more frequently means “to raise the question” (as in “This begs the question of whether …”) or “to dodge the question”‘

Yep. And in common usage “I could care less” means “I couldn’t care less”, “alot” means “a lot” and people say “a bit unique”.

Doesn’t mean you should do it though.

Point well made. Now, let’s arks another question.

Coles is a market but it isn’t super.

Has the RA community finally pushed me beyond the boundaries of correct ettiquette, or has anyone else noticed that we have an underlying theme in stories lately.
Skywhale aside, we have a story about large jugs being a problem and here we’ve the opposite, drying racks being the issue. Then coconut juice just brings to mind Hawaiian dancers for some reason. Hmmm….

Yeah, everyone is so lazy these days, why not join them? Or is it that washing dishes is below the newer generations? Either way I find it pretty pathetic.

Coles Belconnen does stock dish drainers. Aisle 17, top shelf, north-western end of aisle, $4.69 each.

Do you have the GPS coordinates for that location?

One thing that might have been overlooked is maybe the OP’s mother in-law should have been looking for a hearing aid rather than a dishwasher. I hear Costco sells them, not sure about dish-racks though.

the wisdom of the riot strikes back…

Being a male, I wasn’t inclined to ask for directions…I just took a wild punt that the sign at the end of the aisle, ‘dishwashing’ might be a generic term that also included dish drying.

Get a dishwasher powered by an exercise bike lol. Or at least hooked up to it so when ever you have to wash dishes you also have to exercise for 1 hour lol

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.
