But that there is the problem, people who didn't go to the tills with said item i.e. chocolate, the large majority will get tempted by the so called 'special offer' and buy the item, thus increasing the profits, and as you say if we all said no they would quickly stop.

When it was a rollover on the lottery we were made to ask if they wanted a lottery ticket and i think at least 3/4 of the people asked brought one, and usually those people wouldnt buy one or would get it from elsewhere, so that extra income is vital, but i still despised everytime i had to ask.

We even had a little scorecard so everyone we sold we marked it and the winner got a prize

I hear what your saying, but from their business point of view if it's gonna bring in the dosh then they're gonna do it, but it's quite funny them doing it through a machine. lol
