I just now discovered that Cillit Bang is an actual product and not a made-up phrase.
We had a big party at work the other day. It wasn’t catered, because we couldn’t afford a caterer. At least, that’s what they said. To me, it would be preferable to pay a caterer $500 to drive over and do all the grilling than to reimburse someone $500 because they picked up all the food at Costco. The Costco food gets cooked on our own grill with mixed results, i.e., various degrees of charring.
People from other divisions showed up and helped themselves to double helpings of sirloin burgers and hot links, Caesar salad, potato salad, grapes, strawberries and assorted beverages. By the time I was able to get through the line, my plate contained one half of the last turkey burger (I shared the other half with the guy stuck at the grill), two strawberries and six grapes.
It turned out that there wasn’t a lack of meat… it was a lack of time to grill all the meat. There was definitely a shortage of everything else.
The lady that picked up the groceries planned to take the unused food back to Costco! She said they take everything back! You can take back one slice of a sheet cake and say that you didn’t like it and they’ll refund you the full price of the cake. I don’t see how they stay in business!
She took back packs of buns AND packs of frozen hamburger! How do they know we didn’t thaw them out and refreeze them? Surely they don’t resell food that gets returned. I hope.
