Default 4000 apples - Updated with pictures

I had some one come over to my work area and ask the production Manager.
"Hey I bet you know where we can get 4000s apples for Monday"
I'm the company buyer but the idiots didn't think to come ask me.
I left it be.

They then went to Marketing and asked them to get one of the girls go round all the supermarkets in this and the next town to go buy apple.

3 hours later and less than 300 apples later I got a call from ther finance director asking if I could help out the "*****bunch of time and money wasters and could I beat the projected £750 bill and save the £100 expense claim on mileage.

Any how one hour later I have aprox 6000 apples being delivered in the morning for £185.

So why am I telling you this!!!!!!!!!!

Come on.....6000 apples......who do you think will dispose of them for expenses?

Me....


CIDER here we come.

"HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?"

6,000 apples for like $370? Small apple weighs what, half a pound? You're buying apples at like $0.10 - $0.15 per pound? They charging you extra for the worms?

£3 a tray.

That's a 3rd retail. We don't live in apple country and it's out of season.
Believe me, that is cheap!

@ £0.10/Lb
~3 apples/Lb
6000/3 = 2000 lbs
2000x£0.10 =£200.

Retail = 15p-20p each (budget)
4000 x 15p = £600

When it comes to oranges I think we pay something like 10x what you can get them for.

But it's the Cider I'm chuffed at.

We deal in RFID and have to test real life situations including RF absorbstion rate of crates filled with produce. It just so happens that it is apples this time.

But then they are for Cider!

Orfy, this sounds like a sweet deal for you, do they just trash the apples after testing?

BTW Ive never heard anyone say "chuffed" before, sounds awesome, can I get a English to English translation on that?

I'll have to pay to have them disposed of.
Or I'll take them away for expenses.

chuffed adj generally happy with life. You can also get away with saying you are "unchuffed" or "dischuffed" if something gets your back up. Make sure you only use this word in the correct tense and familiarise yourself with the meaning of the word "chuff" too.

cider n alcoholic apple juice. To Brits all cider is alcoholic - there's no such thing as "hard cider" and any non-alcoholic apple juice is called simply "apple juice". The photograph below is from an American office kitchen, and would only be of amusement to Brits.
