Did NOT dispute your observation of a store near you, was talking about a store that I
pass several times a week, sometimes several times a day hence my post, "Total opposite... and just as useful as any other anecdotal comments ever posted on MR - subject to attack in a later post...
oh and you did notice the sarcastic smiley, didn't you???
To explain simply - "Total opposite
" means my experience is the total opposite of yours and is NOT a personal attack on you... "and just as useful as any other anecdotal comments ever posted on MR - subject to attack in a later post...
" means exactly what it says, it's an anecdote like your comment and as such would be subject to attacks on its value/validity... hmm, rather like you attacking what you think I said as opposed to my actual words - see what I mean about anecdotes... and the smileys were intended as punctuation not insulation as I didn't expect to need insulation with a simple comment...
Still, with sensitivities as exposed as some seem to be, please accept my sincere apologies if you feel that you were being attacked... you weren't.
