Now I am happy to promote buying reduced foods as and when it is short dated. But I wonder if I am taking the matter too seriously when I start getting worked up at others antics.
I have watched in disbelief as shoppers raid the ambient fridges of reduced food items and fill their bulging trolley's with bright yellow stickered foods and then wheel the items round and round until the next reducing when they attack the poor assistant and demand that their already reduced stuff is reduced again. My argument is that if you take the food at the original reduced price you pay that price, not hoard it until it is reduced again.
Many times i would have been happy to pay the original reduced price but never get the oppertunity.
Other occasions I have witnessed people taking all the reduced foods and then discarding the items they didn't want around the store. Preventing others getting a look-in.
I wouldn't mind (I am aware it has nothing to do with me) if these people were poor or would benefit from these bargains but it's the same people every time who take everything. They are professional scavangers.
