Doesn’t it irk you when you go to your local supermarket and check the expiry date on that can of corn and see 03/06/09? Is it 3rd of June 2009? The 9th of March 2006? Perhaps the 6th of September 2003? You just don’t know and when you inquire at the cashier, or ask the manager, no one can’t tell either. Is that corn safe to eat? Or will I be poisoned before I turned 20?
I am definitely sure there are consumers out there all over the world are bewildered. What I suggest is that there should be a standard international format for the expiry dates. I’m unaware if there’s already one in place, and I will check that out soon enough, but what if producers don’t abide to it? We’re screwed (if such words offend you please let me know, my apologies if I already have) anyway. This is just a thought I fished out from some corner of my brain, I’d meant to post about this earlier but I forgot. Again.
I’m just fed and up. What else can I say?
Now have your say and rant along with me 🙂
A note to you, my valued readers: I swear sometimes because of certain words’ status that when I use them my thoughts are carried across loud and clear. Though please bear in mind that I don’t cuss with any of those heavy duty words on my blogs (except only in my head and when not a soul is in the vicinity). But if you’re averse to such language please do let me know and I will stop.
This is my blog and I’d love to have my say any way and how I want to but I respect those of you who have taken your time to read this post and those of you who return time and time again. I hope no one judges me completely by those particular set of words, because I’m not a walking mass of disrespect. Besides, it’s mean – not to mention unfair – to judge a person whom you (possibly) don’t know personally and it knocks off some karma points.
