These feckers deserve to endure a slow and painful end, commensurate with the misery and hardship they spread around to needy and gullible people.

I have a list, and this is at the top.
I thought the government said they were going to do something about it.
I seem to remember that Thatcher in the 70's asked questions about the likes of Currys charging over 30% interest.
It is appalling, and I do agree with you that the people charging these rates should meet a really unpleasant end.

Very slow walkers blocking footpaths or pavements..... Possibly means the area to walk isn't wide enough. People who fumble for change after being in a queue to pay, then at the point they have to exchange the dosh, start fumbling.... Get the dosh ready in the queue FFS.

It doesn't have anything to do with what is being advertised, that I can see.
I think it says a lot when a company thinks this is an acceptable advert for their product, and the general public just accept it.
A sign of the times (sigh)
Not a better world

What's the difference between that and having half naked women draped over some product with no relevance (other than this is clearly for a laugh)?

Just put the items in the bag when you have scanned them, you Spunkjackets.

If you put the items straight in the bag, if you lift the bag slightly and decrease the weight on the scale it throws out an error message and you have to call for assistance.

why lift the bag?

It's pretty simple. Have a bag open on the scales. Place items in bag.

One smooth movement is much quicker than scanning it, putting it down and then packing.

Must be a whoosh? Moving something once then having to move it again to pack it clearly takes more time than moving and packing it in one motion, that's pretty basic.

If you are a man, surely you leave the food shop with a haunch of venison over one shoulder, a hindquarters of Dexter beef on the other and a side of lamb hanging from your teeth?

In such a situation, where the hell are you supposed to stash your quiche?

Sorry, I'm with your wife on this one. Take your own heavy duty bags, Open them in the trolley, pack stuff into the appropriate bags. Not hard.
I'm not generally keen on online grocery shopping, so the Mrs writes me a list, and I do the shop.

Chocky 20-03-2015 07:54 PM

I do all the shopping for my house. I hate it but I'm the only driver and get no help. Bags and bags of stuff. So much so I'm on hello terms with f*cking shelf stacking staff in 4 supermarkets. I also put the stuff away when I get in so f*ck what bag they go into.

In return I will not wash up. Well yes I do if its a couple of plates but other than that no. I HATE shopping and I never ever see any other bloke on their own in supermarkets unless they're buying 16 Pot Noodles and wanking socks.

I don't enjoy it but, like you, I'm the only driver. The Mrs has a license, but no sense of direction or spatial awareness, so her getting behind the wheel would simply be an unintentional Death Race 2000.

Yous are both wrong.

Segregating the bags saves time putting it away at home. Eg yous can take your bag of tins and shove them in the tins cupboard. However the correct time-and-motion approach is to segregate the items as you unload them from the trolley onto the till.

Also women (yes it does seem to be almost exclusively women) that sit in the outside of the 2 seats (the rows that just face one way) in the hope that it will prevent anyone sitting next to them. If you don't want anyone sitting next to you either stand or don't travel by public transport in the first place.

The problem with doing that is that the person on the till invariably stretches over your carefully organised shopping to pick up something in the wrong order

Exactly. Waitrose.

Scan your own shopping as you go round, go to your own till, swipe card, pay and go.

No 'Hello, how are you today?' at the till. None of that nonsense. Just shop, pay and go, without any human intervention at all.

Perfect.

I'm the opposite of you! I put everything into order so I don't mix raw with ready to eat and ensure that when unpacking, ive already got items nearly in cupboard order, saving me time when I'm at home.

A bit anal, admittedly!

Ah, that's easy. Preempt it. Checkout Queens always grab the item closest to them, so when starting a new section, make sure that you place the first item from the next bag furthest away from them in the line, then they follow your pattern.

If you get the rare checkout maverick who scans in no chronological order, then have 2,3 or even 4 bags on the go at any one time. Never let a Till Lady ruin your organisation. You'll regret it when you get home.

Scan your own shopping as you go round, go to your own till, swipe card, pay and go.

No 'Hello, how are you today?' at the till. None of that nonsense. Just shop, pay and go, without any human intervention at all.

Perfect.

It can be annoying but the staff are told to do it and monitored so I always respond politely .

People who go out to read the Sunday papers in a coffee shop.

I think they sort of are mate. They must have performance targets for how many sales they put through per hour. I make a game of it and always try to sling everything into the carrier bags faster than they can scan it so I beat them at their own game and try and get them to go even faster by giving them that 'is that as fast as you can go?' look :)

So what if the bleach goes in the same bag as the grapes. No way am I putting all that into the trolley twice and taking it out twice just so they hit their targets. I can pack it as fast as they can scan it anyway, as long as you arent fussy and you pre-open the carrier bags while you are waiting to be served its easy.

That'll be the next thing won't it. I'm going to suggest it on dragons den. Have raised checkouts with chute-like slides that you reverse your car into like loading bays :)
