And it usually is…until you’re involved in a stand-off…over the last BRUSSELS SPROUTS! (even when they’re not!)
That’s what happened in Aldi in Letterkenny when a major misunderstanding almost led to fisticuffs.
A shopper at their store off the Oatfield roundabout, shocked at the price of 24cents for a net of fresh sprouts, started chucking them into her trolley as if they contained gold bullion.
But to be fair, she said to a friend: “I’ll get some for XXXX, XXXX, and XXXX” naming a few of her pals.
She obviously thought she was doing someone a good turn.
This was NOT being seen this way however by another (younger) woman standing behind.
Annoyed that she might not get her hands on the cheapest sprouts this side of Brussels, the second woman scowled: “Ah for f*** sake, would you leave some for the f***ing rest of us.”
This was, of course, very embarrassing for all concerned – not least the silly woman trying to start a row over sprouts…when she realised there was another massive box of sprouts below.
