I've just returned home from the local 'DIY' store. Santas and Rudolphs by the hundred -every shape and size + tinsel by the ton + other decorations. 3 piece suites and office furniture. Beds, bed-linen, ride-on lawnmowers, confectionery, safes (wall & floor), car-mats, rugs and carpets, seeds, garden furniture, even postage stamps. Toothbrushes and condoms would not have been out of place. 'Excuse me', says I to check-out girl, 'Where can I find treated battens?', 'Oh. We dont do them any more', says she. 'Jist a minute' says I. I run outside store and look above doors - yes - there it is - a great big sign saying 'FOCUS D.I.Y.' I run back in and say to lassie at check-out, 'Are you sure this is a DIY store you work for?'. Queue is forming as I demand an address to complain to. I am glad to report that many heads were nodding in agreement. I left after purchasing a small tube of adhesive. When I looked at the instructions for use, they were completely obscured by the barcode label!!!. mad.gif

Cathy hen....... a batten is a length of wood (usually softwood) normally of small dimensions which is generally nailed/screwed to a wall whence objects may be affixed eg panelling. For outdoor/garden use, the battens are pre-treated with preservative to stop them rotting. The sort of object a DIYer like me needs constantly. And where would you expect to buy one of these battens ?........... maybe I would have better luck at an opticians!. unsure.gif
Oh aye - and by the way - I got the barcode label aff!. Pity it took the instructions wey it!.

Barbara. I know how annoying those wee stickers on fruit are. I spent a few years working at London Gatwick Airport, facing literally thousands of passengers every day. One of them I spent after my lunch break with a 'New Zealand' sticker from an apple emblazoned on one of my upper teeth. As smiling at passengers was the rule, I wondered why they all took one look at me and laughed. My fellow-officers had great fun at my expense!.

Barbara, those fruit stickers and toilet rolls, drive me nuts too.
Especially the fruit stickers! Takes ages to get them off. Goodness knows what purpose they serve and the plastic bags they give us in the supermarkets are so thin you have to use two, one inside the other. In fact supermarkets are a pain, remember when we used to go into a shop, ask for what we wanted and the assistant would pack your own shopping bag for you. Happy days! ....I'll have two dozen 'I'm stupid' signs please!
