We should all boycott Bunnings, unless they have the lowest price on a stocked item.

I boycott them anyway as a general rule.  Prefer the local owner model.

It's another plus for our ACC 'no fault' system.

 

Had Trevor slipped on a NZ onion, he wouldn't have had to sue Bunnings. Though, I see, Bunnings are rolling out the policy over here...

 

The warehouse isn't though, so at least there's still a place to get your onions on Top (Mitre 10 too I assume).

Risque or Risky? Depends on how you eat it I suppose. Try to not look like you're sukn it. 

I heard it on Hauraki this morning, Makes sense in some forms, They won't go flying or get washed away with sauce maybe. Six of one half dozen the other..

I favour practicality over tradition, so I am all for the change. I hate it when the onions slip off the top, land on your clothes, and then leave a sauce stain.

It's only a recommendation, not a rule.

 

Meanwhile, the poll is confusing; the leading option at the time of writing has the bread on top. How does that even work?

The next thing you know, they'll have someone to watch you while you eat, just in case you might choke...

What happens if the sauce on the top runs off and makes the ground slippery?

Bunnings is soon to conduct a coefficient of friction test to their T-sauce, should this prove that the sauce could indeed be a contributing factor, the recipe will be amended to a minimum R11 rating, preferably R13 in stores identified as being frequented by morons prone to falling over.

 

However, the right to reserve using the favored T-sauce and replacing it with a relish of acceptable viscosity is yet to be ruled out

I should explain, they are too risky for me to tempt fate with due to food safety in the way the stuff is stored and cooked. I have a heavily suppressed immune system. The consequences could be very serious.

When a new supermarket opened locally, they gave out icecreams to children visiting with their parents. My wife managed to slip on one that one of the little oiks had dropped on the floor, catching her head on a shopping trolley on the way down. Needed six stitches in her head.
The manger was most apologetic. I suggested she should have asked for a year's worth of groceries as compensation.
So I can understand Bunnings providing the guidelines, particularly in a litigious country like 'Little America' (Australia).

As my wife remarked, I would be more worried about the danger of eating what passes for a sausage in that scenario than I would taking on a bit of onion....
