Asda

Recommended Posts

Went to Asda this evening as my local Tesco and Sainsbury's were both shut. A few observations:

 

(1) The place stinks as soon as you go in the door.

 

(2) Every second shopper is on their mobile phone (probably to some fat bastard wedged into the sofa at home) shouting, "Do you want blueberry or chocolate muffins, crinkled or straight kettle chips?"

 

(3) Tons of unruly children running around not looking where they are going, parents screaming at them.

 

(4) I'd never buy anything fresh from this store, only wrapped stuff. Their bakery, meat, fish, ready meals look bloody garbage.

 

Is it just me or has anyone else had similar experiences in this chain of supermarkets? Ever experienced it to such a degree elsewhere?

Which Asda?

While I never enjoy any supermarket- they bring out the worst in people- Asda is one of the worst places to shop. Our only local supermarket is an Asda, which acts as a kind of United Nations of Scum, whereby idiots of all races and creeds gather round a run-down piece of England to drive their trollies with the same absent-mindedness which they afford motorised transport in the adjoining car-park.

 

The five quid for an online delivery is simply the best fiver you could ever spend. Just make sure you buy loads of heavy stuff to make the fuckers sweat for it.

The asda's here aren't /too/ bad, but yes they'd definitely be the bottom of the ladder for me, even Lidl has less annoyances.

 

Much prefer sainsburys but there isn't really one near me so it's normally Tesco

Asda is definitely more full of paraffins than Tesco. Scotland is definitely more full of paraffins than England.

 

Ergo Asda in Scotland should logically be packed to the rafters.

Best supermarkets containing best quality food, really helpful and well educated staff and are populated with the finest shoppers:

 

1) Netto

2) Herrons

3) Price Watch

4) Booze Buster (you can get all of your essentials in one shop from Booze Buster)

 

Netto for me every time, mind, Herrons would be my first choice but some of staff can occasionally be very snobbish.

For me its:

 

1. Waitrose

2. M&S

3. Sainsburys

4. Tesco

5. Asda

6. Morrisons

7. Lidl / Aldi

8. Iceland

9. Netto

 

Safeway was alright, on a par with Tesco IMO but Morrisons have turned them to shit.

Aye the one down where you live, Benton Hypermarket, it's full of scruffs cos you have Wallsend and North Shields in spitting distance and the building is run down.

 

My local ASDA at Swalwell is great, I'd say there are more bamps in Tesco's Kingston Park to be honest, and go in any Morrisons it's wall to wall bampishness. I like ASDA, I like their food, their meats and the fruit is better than other supermarkets.

Morrisons in Tynemouth/North Shields is weird.Sometimes you go in and and it's Tynemouth (blart) and sometimes it's North Shields (clart). Anybody else experienced this phenomenom?

One's butler reports Asda to be Chavtastic.

Fortnum's is the only establishment to receive the Fist guineas....

 

This sounds rather naughty.

At the same time I sense you have a look that says "but Im not ruling out the possibility" :D
