I suspect that Sainsbury's will give the cashier a bollixing, which would be very unfair.

Their offer of a ten quid voucher is laffable. :mrgreen: :roll:

It might be rude, but it's not the cashier's place to reprimand a customer. Where would it end?

Mr Dotsie always rings me when I'm paying for something, it's like he knows that money is leaving the account :roll: I always say I'm going to take the call, then I take it. Considering how little interaction most cashiers engage in, I'm surprised she cared anyway. Has she ever served anyone whilst chatting with another member of staff? Would she reprimand anyone who did?

I'm afraid that I'm on the cashiers side with this and I'm forever reprimanding customers for using their phones at the gaming tables, generally more than once. Phones at the tables are strictly forbidden for mainly security reasons and they still do it, even though they are aware of the rules and I have more than once stopped and held up the game letting all the other customers know the reason why. :D

That's a bit different though, people just seem to want to be cross about something these days, when what does it really matter?

God, that is so true. Staff at my local co-op store were always doing this. No wonder they closed down.

That is one lucky lady. :shock:

(And take a look at the URL. Do you think someone should tell the BBC that Ohio is not in the Middle East? :lol: )
