    • Travel five miles [and back] to fight with a dodgy trolley while I walk endless aisles looking for whatever I’m looking for while being “entertained” by horrible musak before having to offload at the checkout and reload before offloading into the car and then having to bring each item into the house? No thanks. It’s easier to do online. And anyway, who would look after the Missus while I’m gone?

  2. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it… except that all the clerisy (PR, web designers, senior managers) derive their employment from doing their things and justifying their existence. If there were fewer changes we would need fewer people. QED.
