Reduced items

I know its not important nor intelligent so forget the WTF replies; I have tim on my hands and would be interested in any replies.

I watched an argument ensue on Christmas Eve between three people who were arguing who owned the reduced items in the fridges in Tesco. One person had blocked the fridge (sliding doors) with a trolley , the other two were forced to wait until the other had fnished looking at what was in the fridge, although it seemed that she had all of it in her hands or in the trolley. She then proceeded to take the trolley to the girl with the reducing gun and was forcing her to reduce it further. Whilst waiting she noticed some ready meals that had been piled up on the stand waiting to be reduced, placing her trolley as an obstacle proceeded to make the girl reduce the ready meals and take the lot at least 8 of them.

Thats when the aggro started. Is there an etiquette to claimng the reduced produce or is it grab, grab , grab ?

I doubt Tesco would refuse to sell someone a certain number of items as at the end of the day that is the reason why they are being reduced.

Next time I suggest that someone moves this trolley out of the way and then proceeds to help themselves.

I would politely move their trolley aside and say 'excuse me'.






If that didn't work I'd slip an egg into her pocket and accidentally bump against her. :p

I would just bash the trolley with mine- proper ram her!

Personally, i wouldn't show myself up over some spag bol ready meals, if they feel the need to greed over them, the "grabber" clearly deserves them in my opinion....scruffs.

My OH works for tesco she says people that are constantly bugging her to reduce items, she holds on for as long as she can until they go away! She has had many people demand that she should reduce the items more.......

A lot of people think that its their god given right to have food for cheap!

I cringe at people arguing over reduced stuff

i remember once i had a outfit that had been reduced that i was thinking about getting my DD i was eyeing it up thinking whether it would get worn or not when some woman took it out of my hands!!!!

at first i was gonna launch into ultimate bitch mode but then i thought to myself if she needs a 50% discounted item that bad, then she can have it and told her so and bought DD something even nicer

A few weeks ago, I was at Sainsbury's watching a similar affair unfold, with a couple of hideous middle-aged women hoarding everything the worker, who was probably only 16, marked down, while physically blocking any other customer from the area with their trollies, and looming over him quite intimidatingly and coercing him to further reduce things. They were horrible. Really, really greedy and nasty.

I hate seeing people treated like that. I also hate such displays of blatant greed. I also noticed that their attentions were pretty much entirely focused on bullying this kid, and, while they were looking the other way, I figured I could maybe pull something off. So I did - I snuck up, grabbed three packs of meat from the worst hag's trolly, and made a swift escape. It felt good to be such a dick.

when i went t the boots 75% off sale for the first few minutes i stood they just amazed at the greed of people, i couldnt believe it

one woman just cleared the whole shelf which was all the same items into her trolley, and gave the full trolley to her friend and swapped it for an empty one and contiued to do the same thing


i was worried going to the sainsburys 1/2 toy sale would be the same but i was pleasantly surprised, people were even helping lil me get toys fromt eh top shelf :)

I hate the sales, I haven't been out the village since before christmas, might brave Wilkos tomorrow and hope the rampagers are elsewhere.

I used to be a baker in an asda store and I can safely say ive never seen a bigger pack of vultures than when we reduced the cakes and bread. I remember once I was putting reduced items onto a wire rack while stood on a foot stool and one woman was so determined to grab everything first she put her arm through my legs and had her head pressed up against my ****!
At my store we even had one couple who would come in early to load up their trolly with things they knew would be reduced that day so that they could walk around later and get them reduced. I would always refuse to do it for them as it had all already been in their trolly but some were stupid enough to do it for them.
