Man breaks personal best by only logging in to amend his online supermarket order 92 times

An incredibly organised man broken his personal after logging back in to change his online grocery shop on a mere ninety-two occasions.

Simon Williams has discovered the joys of click and collect shopping.

“I know I’m late the to the party but it’s so convenient!” he said.

“The number of times in the past when I’d do a big weekly shop only to get home and realise I’d just bought loads of mint Aeros and cat litter.

“Now when I forget to buy Marmite I can just log back in and add it! It’s like living in Blade Runner or something.

“For example, this week after completing my order I looked in the airing cupboard and realised I already had twelve toilet rolls. So I logged back in and removed them. But then I thought, what if there’s a second spike and people start stockpiling again? So I logged back in and added them again.

“And then, just when I thought I was finally done, I remembered that I hadn’t bought any fruit or vegetables. So I added an apple and an iceberg lettuce, just so I’d have something nice to go off in the fridge.

“It’s so easy! I really think this will catch on.”

A supermarket spokesman said, “What customers don’t realise is that each time they amend an order one of our staff members has to run around a store filling up a trolley from scratch.

“That’s literally how it works – if anyone can think of a better way then please let us know!”
