The most middle-class-mum tweets about the end of free coffee at Waitrose
Vanessa blames Brexit
There’s nothing that can set middle-class Twitter alight like a change in Waitrose’s Terms of Conditions. Yesterday, Waitrose announced that customers will be required to make a purchase before being given their free coffee.
Forget the ‘freeloaders’, spare a thought for the middle-class mums who need their warm caffeinated beverage to get them through their quinoa based shop.
Take Gill, complete with cat display picture, for example:
She is not happy with this change at all, indeed.
Make up your mind, Waitrose!
Queue Rachael, sniping into the conversation with her views on unnecessarily drinking coffee while shopping:
Was she @-ed? No, but she’ll put in her two cents about Gill’s shopping habits anyway.
The Independent asked if there really was “chaos in Surrey”:
Vanessa asks if this is to do with #brexit ?:
My heart breaks thinking about the moment Patricia hears x:
NO CHLOE NO:
Some have even relished the change. Agy is excited about reduced queuing:
While Char responded, telling Twitter she is forever buying avocados, to accompany her coffee, bless her soul:
Does she realise there’s an avocado war going on in Mexico? Probably not.
Leanne knew it was coming:
And Bex and Rachel have even found a way to con the system:
Waitrose have defended the move, stating they are “simply” amending the terms of free coffee:
But one thing is clear: for the middle-class mums of Twitter, there is nothing “simple” about this horrible twist of fate.
