    Just had a Viscount biscuit (not had one in years) and it is nothing like how they use to taste. Everything about it was wrong.

    If I possessed the emotion of anger I'd be fuming right now.

    Tell me, are these Viscount "biscuits" the ones now made with Cadbury chocolate?

    There's your problem, right there.

    One did factor that in old chap, but there is something far more sinister going on with the Viscount. The quality of biscuit is inferior, the chocolate and cream thinner and less pleasing in the eating.

    15 minutes have passed and I'm still outraged.

    Sympathize with your feeling. It's all about money - either less quality or smaller size.

    It always goes back to 'Money' which is always a powerful weapon. If you want the best you pay for it. If you want or have to settle for second best then that is what one must do.

    I can't comment on that other than one can certainly be in control of one's feelings.

    I agree but that is not what the poster said!

    "If I possessed the emotion of anger I'd be fuming right now." <-----This is what he said.
    I believe every one does have the emotion of anger including goad!
