    11+Elite One stop shop for the very best of MSE 24th Apr 12 at 7:05 AM


    New overflow thread for 11+ers

    THE FOLLOWING IS COPIED FROM ORIGINAL FIRST POST ON PREVIOUS THREAD

    This is yet another bargain/glitch/DTD/JTD/misprice thread!

    We know it's in the 'Gone But Not Forgotten' section!

    We know there are at least 2 other threads in which we could post!

    Yes, we do talk a lot!

    No, not all of what we say is Tesco related or even of interest to many others but this is the way this thread has formed.

    Many of us want to discuss the various deals to be had but this was not appreciated on the main Grabbit forum. As such, we now use this thread to talk about anything from how to cook a baked potato to how to get 1p or 4p items through self-scan as quickly as possible. We also discuss ex-husbands, kids and animals. If you have a medical problem we'll nag you until you go to the Doctor. If you're not feeling well we'll provide support, a wee hot drink and whatever chocolate is currently glitching to cheer you up.

    And finally, yes we know that some people try to obscure the store names but this works both ways. It might make it difficult for those who don't have the time to sit here and natter all day but it also makes it difficult for staff/managers to quickly identify any issues at their store.

    We do try to remember to post new deals in bold. We don't like arguing so we're not going to take umbrage if one or two deals slip through.

    Now sit back, relax and feel free to join in. We don't bite (unless you ask nicely), we will help wherever possible and you don't have to post new deals just to feel like part of the group.

    Please put all your finds in bold with LAST 4 DIGITS OF barcode and photo if possible so we can chat & still speed read for bargains.

    Common abbreviations:

    SEL: Shelf Edge Label
    DTD: Double the Difference
    JTD: Just the Difference
    RTC: Reduced to Clear
    OOD: Out Of Date
    CC: Clubcard or Credit Card, depends on context
    HTH: Hope That Helps
    SA: Sales Assistant
    CS: Customer Services
    DD: Darling Daughter
    DS: Darling Son
    OH: Other Half
    DH: Darling Husband

    Yes I do but have not been for a few months. I found myself going round saying how much. I'll wait until there is a glitch at T's

    Really like their meat though and their customer service is outstanding. You can return anything at anytime if you don't feel that you have had value for money. All their staff are friendly and helpful. T's would do well to learn a few things from them.

    Fudge_cake,
    When I was on Warfarin injections earlier this year, I used to take Codeine as a painkiller ( and Diclofenac, which also thins the blood), so probably you can discuss it with your dentist?
    Originally posted by darkvelv

    it would have been heparin injections, warfarin only comes in tablet form

    you can't take other drugs to thin the blood at the same time as warfarin tablets so anti-inflammatories are a big no no (such as diclofenac)but you can have diclofenac while you are on heparin injections

    before a gen anaesthetic you have to wait for the warfarin to get out of your system or you could bleed to death during the op (sl overexaggeration but you know what i mean) so patients get switched to heparin injectiosn before during and after surgery as it still thins the blood but is less risky

    sorry for the tutorial and sorry if it's still as clear as mud lol

    off to mr S , am treating my sis to some palmolive
