Once you open a thread, you don't have any influence on the direction it steers.

Welcome to the internet.

Re: Coming from UK? [food items delivery needed]

Yeah you are right...

But it could have been worse...Some Mod in all their wisdom might have thought I am offending people and throwing attitude and put a ban on my posts...

Actually, this ex-mod who lives less than a mile from ASDA thinks you're offending people. And since you're not willing to do two things - be nice to people willing/offering/asking for more info to help you and you're being far too secretive about your ASDA desires, I'm not going to offer my assistance.

Nothing secretive...Did not mention the content because I dont want this thread to get derailed by my own opinionated comments...
History in this forum has shown that for every 2 valid or helpful comments there are atleast 3 or more opinions...And the thread takes a turn...

My stats may be wrong but the phrase is correct...
Fixed that for you.

Oh, ...... the irony.
If you plant seeds, don't be surprised when something grows.
Good entertainment nonetheless.

I think you need the services of a personal shopper**, who knows where there's a Post Office nearby (and knows how to send packages) - unless it's something bulky and heavy?? (the mind boggles)

**do you know nobody in UK who could do this?

I would like to get a certain eatable for my kids from UK. It has to be purchased by visiting ASDA and is not available online. Pls PM me if -
Whatever it is, you know it's not good for them. It's full of E-numbers and sugars. Try something healthier for them.

There, I've said what you didn't want to hear so you may as well mention what it is now.

Do you think people that you don't know really care what you feed your kids?

OP I am sure someone will come and help you, I got a lot of help when asking for other stuff from the US. Wish I could help but I need a visa for the UK
But your request for assistance was politely worded and graciously accepted. You're likely to be swimming in Cheetos !

I cant see many being inclined to assist in this matter. The OP wont state what it is and is determined to be snarky and rude, this is not much incentive to offer assistance and space in limited luggage .

Re: Coming From UK?

Ok people lets see this thing logically. Obviously the OP wants something not available in Switzerland (or Germany-its close enough). So what is the only thing that it can be?

Re: Coming from UK? [food items delivery needed]

The more relevant information you post, the more likely you are to get a helpful answer. Sometimes a simple solution to the requirement lies outside of the originally stated question. This seems to me to be fairly obvious.

I cannot see the point in being coy. Your statement that you're withholding that information, because you only wanted relevant answers has backfired somewhat, hasn't it?

I may be going to the UK next week. If I have to PM you to find out your requirement, you're demanding I put in extra effort to help you. If you state what you need upfront, then if I can't help (maybe it's liquid - I'm travelling with just hand luggage), I'm saved that step, and don't even need to get into discussion.

Re: Coming from UK? [food items delivery needed]

Well I asked a valid question "what is it?"

Could'nt care less what you feed your kids as long as it's not piles of drugs or anything that would put me into problems at a border.

If it would take over my car (i.e a massive inflatable barney or something) I couldn't help you.

I'm going in the next week or so to the UK and I'm going to Asda.

Sorry, someone just blew their chance.

I am new on EF but I am enjoy this thread this morning, so thought I would throw in my 5 rappens worth.

Yes you can get brown sugar, fair trade also maybe not Bio though, and if you like Muscavado/Demerera try Schwartzenbachs in Neiderdorf or any of the Asian supermarkets they have it much cheaper then at Jemoli or Globus. I still want to know what ASDA has that you cant get here? Obviously not Findus Crispy Pancakes, they do those in Migros
