Friday 23 December 2011: Desperately Seeking....
It's one of those immutable laws of physics. The one time of year that people actually like eating Brussel Sprouts and you can't get any (well almost anyway).
Sainsburys just had empty baskets which had been devastated by packs of rabid pre-christmas shoppers.
'Do you really not have any Brussels Sprouts at all?'
'No sorry, we sold out. But we are expecting another delivery at 12:00'
'Hmmmm...could turn ugly, hope you got some serious crowd control in place.'
Found some in Asda eventually, large piles of them actually.....briefly toyed with the idea of buying a few trolley loads and heading back into to town to try and turn a quick profit from other desperate shoppers....but no....decided to go home and have a Gin and Tinic instead.
