they discontinued it? The trouble of getting Lipton tea

Last week I was looking for Lipton Decaffeinated teabags in Woolworths. I couldn't see any in the local Woolworths, so I asked the staff for Lipton decaf tea. (Yes, I specified Lipton brand name.) The staff walked to the aisles and couldn't see any Lipton decaf tea, then she told me, “They discontinued it.
I noticed the way she described the situation, blaming Lipton instead of Woolworths (Leichhardt). I asked “You meant Woolworths do not carry it?
She simply repeated again “I can't find it here. They must have discontinued it.
I stated myself clear, “You meant Woolworths do not carry it, not Liptop stopped making decaf tea?

Yesterday, I shopped at Coles and bought two packs of Lipton Decaffeinated Tea. According to Lipton website, Lipton Decaffeinated is still under their product section, and I can get it from Coles. Lipton Decaffeinated Tea must not have been discontinued. Woolworths for whatsoever reason refuse to carry it, fine. There's no need to shift the blame to another company or intentionally mislead their customers.

If you look at the photo below carefully, you should see Wendy spoons behind my Aeroccino machine and right next to sugar sticks. I know I am lazy, using sugar sticks is easier. Behind the teabags on the left is my Nespresso coffee machine. (I know Rev. Dr. Wu Yi is jealous about my Nespresso coffee machine.)

You simply can't trust your local supermarket. Shame on you Woolworths.

(To Don: Antony is poor, he can't afford Pepsi, Pepsi Max or Mountain Dew. Antony drinks tea and coffee.)

Really Antony, you are on the attack again. If it's not members of the police force, it's poor brain dead employees of a supermarket! Watch and learn, if you want answers, go to the front counter and ask for the manager, don't rely on the lowly shelf fillers to know anything, after all they are only there because a machine has not been invented to take their place. I expect you will have sent an e-mail to Liptons by now ratting out Woollies at Leichhardt as bad retailers!
an idiot would get locked into a single supplier of coffee, and an unchangeable delivery device.

Your damn spam vetting device corrupted my message and left out a paragraph!
In fact I hate your Nespresso machine, I am not jealous of it. "Only" was missed out from " idiot etc"
Also it missed out, "you must have spent hours on the photographed area to make it look so clean"!!

No, I merely selected the very tiny clean spot of the messy kitchen.
You know that I make very best Nespresso coffee ;-)

Lying just to hide a Decaf Tea is really messed up. Did they have to punish it for doing something bad? Or was the tea just absent and didn't want to go to Woolworths anymore?
