Toe fungus and BAEC

I had no idea that toe fungus was a particular concern of BAEC members.

Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment is on special offer at Sainsbury's at the moment, so it's an Avios earning opportunity.

And there I was, ready to deploy the PUTI accusation. I guess that could still be true but I don't think Nectar does anything special for alcohol related purchases. Unlike the Co-Op, founded by teetotallers.

I had to Google PUTI. It offered "nepali slang for female genital organ". Esoteric stuff


As for the Co-op, those founders must have been set spinning in their graves by Paul Flowers...

OP: "I had no idea that toe fungus was a particular concern of BAEC members."

Only if it's contagious?

The CO-OP won't allow you to pay for your shopping via credit card if you say buy a lottery ticket as part of your purchase....

The thing with toe fungus is that the only medical treatment has a slightly unfortunate side effect of liver failure in some people, I believe.

Hence one of those things more susceptible to quacks than other ailments.

Same! I was wondering what I had browsed that had decided this was a relevant ad for me to see! I'm now only partially glad that everyone seemingly got it.

That was the biggest loss of the move from Tesco. Clubcard gives you points on spirits.

you would have to be insanely unlucky to get liver failure from topical treatment for tinea

oral therapy slightly more likely but most people donít need that

can anyone let a confused Norwegian in on the joke anyway?
