This post will not make me popular,I will take that chance because something doesn’t sit well with me. I’m sure it will look like a bad case of sour grapes but its not. Its really not. The Morrisons Mum thing , I didn’t apply to be one ( did you have to apply,I don’t know) because I don’t do reviews unless ive bought something I like ,so I’m genuinely not bitter about it. The reason being i simply don’t have time to dedicate to the blog for posts other than what I WANT to write .Also I have no issue with anyone doing reviews type things! What it is that isn’t sitting well with me is this, first off I hope that while morrisons where giving out lots and lots of free vouchers they were also donating something to food banks. Because ,you know, they really do NEED free food !!
Also the vouchers seemed to be given to quite a few who really didn’t seem to need them. £80 is ALOT of money to ALOT of people. I gather the idea was to buy barbeque stuff (correct me if I’m wrong) and tweet /instagram the heck out of it. But for many people that money would have been spend on real essentials. Just the necessary to get by. It seemed like quite a lot of booze was bought.
This weekend so many people will have been scraping by on pennies, having to go without things they usually buy because they cant afford enough food. While seeing endless pics of shopping on twitter . I’m lucky ,I did my shopping already this week but it left me with -£48 in the bank ( yes, minus)
I do not blame the bloggers given the vouchers, who wouldn’t be delighted to get £80 in vouchers? I know i would be but the spamming of timelimes with pics of carrier bags of shopping etc has been a bit much.
The whole bragging about your free supermarket shop just seems a little unsavoury to me in current times especially as so much alcohol was bought .
Morrisons could have done a wonderful thing here they could have given them vouchers to people/bloggers who REALLY needed them
That’s all, I genuinely do hope the morrisons mums enjoyed the barbeques etc but I think the whole thing was badly handled. My beef with this issue isnt the bloggers at all ,its with the it was handled
The fact that food banks have been a huge issue lately and so many are going hungry just made this whole thing something that didn’t sit well with me.
