M&S upset feminists
« on: Nov 20, 2018, 03:07:38 PM »
Apparently their window display and slogan have caused offence...

I've no opinion on this other than it seems some are easily offended but will ask why a lot of M&S products seem to be aimed at 30 or 40 somethings while from observation of in shop customers (in the days we had an M&S) the shoppers mostly seem to be 60+.

I think that sums it up very well.

  ‘Must Have Fancy Little Knickers.’


Us women all need knickers.. even at Christmas.. Let them be fancy.
 Wish I still looked good in fancy little knickers.. Alas ,mine are comfy cotton.



I bet those women who complained wear BIG drawers.

Not the food halls surely? Where's the middle class to shop then, Tesco's?

Socialists I suppose. At least you get a reasonable space to park in at Aldi's

Not at our nearest one. They took over half of a B&Q and there is a shared car park with pretty cramped spaces. Lidl next door built from scratch and have the best car park of any I use.

 ;D ;D ;D


I'm pleased to say it has been years since I used the M25. It didn't even have the automated money boxes when I last used it. I hope I never have to again.

Is that Redditch by any chance? I was there a few weeks back when doggy sitting in Alvechurch

Everybody likes a good moan now and again, but it appears there are more and more people about with the PC bug, it's a just pity they can't come up with a vaccine, I think i'm immune.

No I'm Northampton born and bred and live there now. This should be evident from the amount of old cobblers in my posts. 🤣

At least it's a good excuse...I can't think of one off-hand.
