Once again, disaster has struck in this household.
I woke yesterday morning without a care in the world without a hint of the catastrophe that was about to strike.
Mid afternoon I wandered down to the village to get the paper and a supply of baccy for the week.
Not a whiff of Condor, nor any other pipe baccy either. All they had was fag baccy which naturally they tried to pawn off on me. I declined.
I admit it was a shock but there is another shop so all was not lost.
I mosied on down to the other shop and asked for Condor.
They had none!
Now I was beginning to get a little worried. I asked for Mellow Virginia but they were out of that too. What the fuck is going on here?
In the end, I thought I would try a new baccy and they did have a pack or two of Yachtsman Navy Plug, so I bought one.
It’s not Condor but what the hell. It’s also a plug tobacco and when I opened the pack there was the fifty gram solid block. It is many the year since I dealt with plug tobacco as it requires slicing and rubbing.
When I got home, I got myself a length of plank as a cutting board, carefully sharpened my penknife and set to work. It requires patience, but I have that. It requires precision but I can do that. It requires persistence but I’m okay with that too.
So what the fuck is going on here? Are they gearing up for new packs and aren’t delivering until the new packs are ready? Have they withdrawn my brand? Are they just being spiteful?
Is it the end of the world?
