    need to VENT!!!!!!!
    Because Im bloody fuming!!! ;!!!;!;Got back from Lidls earlier, where I don't usually do my shopping, and to pick up a few things. I'm waiting in line and I dropped 20 note (yep that's me trying to hold everything because I didn't want a trolley). The lady in front of me picked it up. I thanked her and held my hand out, and she said, "The things found on earth are kept by the collector," and walks away.
    !!!128545;I was like Youre f%*king joking and I looked at... the people behind me standing in line, they couldn't believe it either.... this can't actually be happening, right?!
    So I took a deep breath, turned back towards the lady/thief/or whatever you want to call her, and as I approached her, I said, "Do I look like I'm in the mood?! Let's not play games.. give me my money back!
    She had the nerve to ignore me completely and tried to walk away,so of course, I left everything and followed her to the car park as I was calling the guards (because somebody's about to go to prison,not sure who at this point though, her or me). She was almost running to get away from me, which was the first sign of real intelligence ; this lady had shown. !!! When she got to her car she put her bags on the ground trying to quickly get her boot open.
    I was boiling at this point! I decided that her finders keepers" rule just presented the perfect opportunity for a great teachable moment, so, I ran full speed ( probably not that fast), and grabbed her shopping bags, and headed to my car yelling, "The things found on earth are kept by the collector!"
    I got into my car,ignoring her every attempt to get my attention. I was outta line I'll admit, but she was too. I was f%*king fuming ; but I had a sense of satisfaction at the same time. Anyone who knows me knows that I've never stolen anything so this is completely out of character for me. But anyway, I get home and open the bags and what did I find?
    3 packs of fillet steak
    3 kgs of wild caught salmon
    2 kgs of potatoes
    And...
    A bottle of Vodka
    I can't help but think to myself... WOW! Not bad for 20!!!
    In all seriousness.... this is just a joke to see who would read the entire post.
    If you made it...please copy and paste and sit back and enjoy !!!Hopefully, I just put a smile on your face!

    I just come back in to find Waities envelope.

    My excitement was short-lived with four 4 off 40 spend

    Happy with the 2.50 off pre-packed beef but 1 off soup ? ?
    Only used to free soup with CV coupons

    Advice needed please.

    Do I only need to buy the 20 Valentine meal deal if I want to use a 6 off 30 coupon? My choices add up to more than 30 before deductions. Obviously I would buy a newspaper/coffee as well.
