While doing some shopping in Aldi this afternoon I spotted this sign.

I know that vendors have to be careful, but do they think we're all stupid?

    Michele, you’ve had IT folks ask what a .pdf is. So Aldi is being helpful and allowing for the fact that some people are a bit…. special!

    Tesco’s version of Weetabix has a warning about containing wheat, even though it’s called something like: “Tesco Wheat Biscuts. Made from 100% pure wheat.”

    Aldi thinks “we were dumb” or “we are dumb”? (we’re)

    I have to agree with Laura on this.
    Anything that helps not getting sued by so called “dumb” people it’s worth a large sign like that.

    And to make it worse – the warning is on the wrong side – the arrow points to empty space.
