On the side of my dinner tonight (on the box it came in, rather), at the beginning of the little paragraph about Refunds If You Are Not Satisfied and Your Rights As A Customer, was:



It's great that you've chosen this Toad in the Hole.
..

Emphasis mine.

Whut?

It is not remotely great that I have "chosen this Toad in the Hole" (and for the sake of fluffy ferrets, I hardly hand-selected that particular one lovingly out of all the inferior ones nestled in the Iceland freezer cabinet). It is lazy that I have chosen this Toad in the Hole. It is cheap. It is displaying a quite disturbing insouciance towards the nutritional value of my daily food intake and, by extension, my overall health, if you want to push it, because Lord knows, I'm not exactly expecting a gorgeously balanced and delicious meal out of a suspiciously greyish-coloured slab of frozen food that cost me all of a quid!

Great. Pffft.

Ahem.

I'm not entirely certain why that got to me so much. How ridiculous. But I found being confronted by such alarmingly jocular and buoyant enthusiasm to be fairly out of left field, yes.

It wasn't a bad dinner, actually. ;)

[And no, I am not procrastinating whilst hacking through typing up the Black Peter discussion, at all; why do you ask? ;) ]
