Victory in latest Complaining Cow V Tesco Battle

At the risk of this blog becoming wholly “Have a go at Tesco” I can’t not tell you the result about the latest battle regarding the cola bottles and milk bottles. I won! They were very gracious though! I received a nicely handwritten letter saying:

“Hi Helen

 Congratulations on your recent victory, as promised we’ve sent you some sweets.

 We trust that this will be the start of a new blossoming friendship.

 Should you ever have a complaint we’ll be happy to help.

 I hope you enjoy the sweeties.

The @UKTesco Team”

 Aw that was lovely wasn’t it? Start of a blossoming friendship?? Who thinks that then? Anyone?? Oh look they’ll be happy to help with any complaint. Right, deliver for free please. Sainsbury’s do.

Beautifully dressed up cola bottles?!?!
Beautifully dressed up cola bottles!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is the parcel I received. Yes, I did win with “milk bottles”!!! But my son enjoyed the cola bottles, hence why one packet is open!

Thanks Tesco, I’ll give you a rest for a bit, got to complain to the Post Office now because look what they did to your gift! Least you know they are in trouble!!! (…and it’s not you this time!)

This should be easy to claim for, at least they have already admitted fault!

The Complaining Cow Battles With Tesco Again

Ok, not so big this time. But they started it. I asked them what was more annoying. Badly behaved screaming kids or me?!! They said everyone was welcome and they liked to help everyone. We know that is not true as we know from my having to take them to court! So asked about the thieves that nick from the pick and mix. They said rare event. Nah, see it all the time. Once saw a mother let her child eat all the chocolates from an advent calendar in the shop before paying for it. If she paid for it. How mad is that? Anyway someone else said a particular sweet they liked and I said something different. @UKTesco sided with the other one. So I decided to take umbrage at this very serious matter and started a battle.

This one is easy for you to join in. Do you prefer cola bottles or milk bottle sweets? See my Facebook page and please leave your choice. (Don’t forget to like my page too ;))I have been quite fair and not tried to sway people one way or the other….

There’s a lot at stake. I said if they win I’ll leave them alone for a bit. If I win they have to send me sweeties!! So pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease comment on the FB page, or here and try and work out what I chose!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
