Woolies Staff Can't Read

Jasper Carrott used to do a great joke about the staff in Woolies. He says they never changed, were always bored, monotonous dis-interested staff. "Excuse me I've just put some anthrax in the pick and mix!". "Ohhhhh", the staff member replies despondently, "It's not my department". To this extent you fail to wonder why when living bowls arrive in store they leave them to die. These boxes contain round bowls with plants inside, called the Bottle Garden, that desperately need light. The box has four windows with perforated sides that say "Store Staff: Remove this panel on receipt so plants can get light. Also enables customers to see bottle garden". I know this because three of the four sides are still on all the boxes.
