That Pellegrini always looks like he's stoned out of his mind. What's wrong with his eyes?

People who cannot owe up to their wrong doings or destroy valuables with no accountability whatsoever.

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.

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

Oddjob 23-03-2015 02:01 PM

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.

I know mate you may as well just reverse your car up to the till and let them sling it in

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 :)
