A Tale of Woe and Costcutter

I am decidedly put out. A couple of days ago I bought a 2 litre bottle of milk in good faith from Costcutter. I joyfully carried it home, eagerly imagining the tea, coffee and bowls of cereal it would make. It was a ray of hope in these dark days of exams.

This morning as I tucked into a quick snack of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes I found to my horror that they didn't taste quite as 'delicious and nutritious' as usual. In fact they tasted rather like mackerel. I like mackerel mind you, but not in cereal.

Sure enough I discovered that the milk did not smell as sweet as milk should. It hadn't yet reached lumpy, sick inducing levels, but it certainly wasn't right. It has been kept in our small but efficient fridge and the sell by date is June 14th. My fellow housemates and I have been cheated out of a litre of milk.

It's not fair. Damn you Costcutter!

  1. Costcutter milk always goes off a day or 2 before the expiry date, I've found. It has happened to me quite a few times, so I no longer buy from there.

    The trip to Tesco isn't as bad as having to take a gulp of spoilt milk first thing in the morning.

    Perhaps everyone should boycott Costcutter milk…

  2. Really? That's not right. I don't think I'll be buying milk from them again – I'll take my £1.11 elsewhere. The people have spoken.

  3. Not for nothing is it nicknamed Cocksuckers.

  4. I've found that Tesco milk doesn't quite last as long either. It gets nearer to it's use by date than costcutters does though!

  5. That's just daft! If milk goes off before its sell by date, why don't they just make the sell by a couple of days earlier. At least we'd all know where we stand.

    When did my life get this pathetic?

  7. Ah. Point taken. I'll try to do better next time…

  8. She's not pathetic, she's Madame Pathetico!

  9. … although I am impressed that Madame Pathetico, despite remaining true to her name by spending most of the film face down on the floor with her head on a cushion, did still manage to grasp quite a lot of the plot of Eternal Sunshine… ;-)
