    I’ve never bought ten bottles of the same wine apart for when I purchased all the booze for my wedding (the Sainsbury’s store manager gave me a discount and had two lads help me with the boxes!). Guess I like variety too much for this to be an issue that impacts me.

    Today Sainsbury’s substitutes my smooth peanut butter for ……… crunchy! Obviously I have contacted trading standards via carrier pigeon and assume and air ship will be dispatched shortly to drop rocks on the Neanderthals!

    You ordered: A Pineapple

    But it was not in stock, so instead we've given you: An Orange

    Substitutions are infuriating and pointless, have always turned them off (but we do collection rather than delivery, so it's just a case of popping into the shop right after collecting to pick up anything they didn't have - which 90% of the time they actually do have but the pickers just failed to find it)

    If they’re not to your standard and can’t appease your self entitlement then you could just go to the supermarket and do your own shopping?
