Asda sells chicken curry without the chicken

DARREN Ford is unhappy that his Asda sold him a chicken curry withut the chicken.

Mr Ford, a chef by trade, bought the meal from Asda in Worcester. He tells the Worcester News:

“I put it in the oven and I’m looking at it and thinking, ‘Where’s the chicken?’ We had to spend £20 on a takeaway because I can’t drive and it was late at night. I phoned customer services to be told I was only going to get a refund and a £5 gift voucher. I’ve told them they can keep their gift card and I won’t be going in there again. I’m unemployed at the moment and £20 is money I haven’t got to spare. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”

Asda then offered Mr Ford £35 to spend in the store. He vows to spend it on “anything but food”.

Bit odd, no? Might Mr Ford spend it on chicken and the ingredients for a chicken curry? And he should think on: the curry also contained no horse.
