I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that tried to track down those pesky but incredibly valuable (to us) water bottles in/with Sainsburys. We’ve been going through a bit of a time since last summer, it’s not been an easy spell, and my health continues to careen from one new problem to another, all of which have contributed to why I haven’t been around much over the last 4 or 5 months. To have so many of you reply and in many cases go completely out of your way in an effort to help my sorry behind was extremely humbling. I’d hesitate to say it completely restored my faith in humanity, because the misanthrope in me is pretty strong, but it didn’t miss by that much 😂
Sainsburys probably wondered what the hell was going on, but the good news is that, after numerous failed online orders from you lovely people right across the country, and fruitless jaunts by members to their local stores on the hunt, one member not only managed to locate 6 bottles, but also went out of her way to travel to get them, and they arrived here yesterday morning. I’m not going to publicise who it was here, or the details of the significant mission undertaken to collect them, just in case she’d rather I didn’t, but some of you will already know from the relevant replies on the original post. Safe to say, she has an incredible amount of gratitude from both of us.
I explained to Bod about the efforts of everyone here and she was genuinely touched - not a response to be sniffed at coming from a teenager, never mind an autistic one. So, thank you again, everyone. This board is frequented by a pretty incredible bunch of people, and no amount of unwelcome rebrands can change that.
