    Of watercress in my bag of rocket from Waitrose.

    Has anyone else ever had a similar problem before and does anyone have the complaints address to hand?

    With thanks,

    George Spicer.

    Sorry to hear this George.

    Cress and rocket displacement isnt unheard of and can often cause much distress.

    Thinking of you at this difficult time sir.

    That's disgraceful, George. If one wanted watercress one could have gone to Aldi.
    I've always found Waitrose somewhat arriviste in supermarket circles. At the end of the day you know where you are with good old Marks and Sparks.

    No, but I once forgot to check the cavity of an organic grouse purchased from Lidl, and ended up with a tangled mess of melted plastic and giblets in the middle of my stuffing.

    I imagine said bag of rocket wasn't cheap so to find a gobbet of grass in it is, to my mind, unforgivable.
    You ought to take this to the highest level possible.
    At least take it back to the store and create a right royal rumpus. (apt in this week of aristocratic celebration, n'est-ce pas)

    Is it garden cress or upland cress because they will need to know when you report it? No jokes about upland gardeners please,

    I've just googled "Waitrose helpline" and got a number to ring in less time it probably took you to log on and type your message.

    Googled? You’ll have to explain - is that a type of dance?

    What a load of veggie moaners.

    Get some real food into you.

    A deep fried Mars bar and a bottle of Irn Bru. And make sure it's Barr's and not some second rate supermarket substitute.

    Did you weigh the bag after you took out the strand of cress George old mate because if it was the specified weight on the bag and you complain they could argue that you got a bit extra and if they come after you, at their prices that strand could be an extra couple of quid!
