It seems Tesco have released a policy in recent months that tells all checkout staff they MUST ask whether the customer 'needs help packing' no matter what. Nice idea, but oh man there has to be a limit!
I was in Tesco yesterday and bought a Tesco Value wholemeal bread @ 37p. At the checkout the lovely girl (I think she was new) asks me whether I need any help packing it. I kinda rolled my eyes and said something like "hey, I'm a big strong guy, I reckon I can get it out of here without even using a bag *wink*". She went all red and I think it hit her that company policies don't always make sense.
Lurrvely checkout girl though, I hope she in there tomorrow when I go to buy a pack of 23p Polos!!
Anyway, I'm wondering what odd or funny things (if any) checkout supermarket people have done to you?
