most of those people will be dead soon enough
Far worse than Tesco or Sainsbury's.
u must just be younger than you guys
self checkouts are good for when you want to buy cocopops without the charade of pretending they're for a child
*buy expensive apples and pretend they are turnips.
I had to show an old man how to use the self-service in Tesco a few months back. That was a bit weird. I like to think he went on to choose it over the standard till but probably not.
they have a new type of self service machine that doesnt have a weight-measured bagging area! potentially opening themselves up to a lot of thievery, but also not annoying, so that's nice
You're fucked if you end up directed to one and you have any items to weigh, though.
separately or something, or else you have to move to a normal self-service.
What's weird is the option is still on there. You can select Bananas from the new till but it just goes to a page saying you can't buy that from this checkout.
Its called direct action.
Sure you will have the minor annoyance at having to forgo your bananas Tescos will have to expend resource on collecting the bananas from the tills and time is money and the bananas will also have had extra 'handling' thus shortening their shelf life (also costing them money).
Stick to your guns and in a short while, tescos will correct this oversight.
Direct action, do it together and stick at it, and we can shape the world as the consumer wants it to be.
And by "near" I mean <1 mile.
I think they're pretty crap tbh and not even that cheap. Usually have some interesting beer but that's about it.
I like 'em. Lots of yellow, great choice / variety of products / quality / value / price. Best supermarket IMO.
was that they tried to sell you vast quantities of cheap sausage rolls.
You already have a de facto Morrisons down at Bell Green. The Savacentre is more skanky Morrisons than toffee-nosed Sainsburys, whatever the sign outside may say. And if that's not good enough then if you want downmarket supermarkets you'll just have to get out of your ivory tower in FH and get down to the mean streets of Peckham for your fix.
Doesn't even have a spirits section in the booze aisles...
should you ever desire to do so.
show this woman blowing on the card before swiping it.
i don't think anyone in the world does this or has ever done this before.
have stopped asking how many of my own bags I've used, which is shit. I was getting a nectar point per bag or something.
Why yes I did, Ms Sainsbo Machine. Three in fact!
[I did not actually use any of my own bags]
3 million (nectar points)
no wonder people want them fucking gone; terrible everything.
no idea what you're on about here m8
they look particularly cool, I was even going to post it and say "check it out". Instead though, I'll have to deploy some ageism and say "lol you are an oldie"
I've tried saying "aye those apples are Jonagold mate" to the checkout operator and it simply does not work. Even if you wink
Compared to Sainsbury's anyway.
The flipside is that they're not monitored very well in my local Morrissey's, so you can easily steal a few quid by scanning in less than you bought.
those poor companies :'(
more about grown, relatively well-off people being absolute scrubs
Whoever manufactures them needs shooting
but heard on the Today program that 60% of their customers don't like them. does that mean that 40% of them do like them? Are they completely removing them?
Everyone will be happy
do the 60% ever use the self service checkouts? and what percentage of checkouts/transactions are self service?
