The embarrassement of bargain shopping with mrs barky

Went to tesco to use the machines to print out our disney new year pics-they have posters and leaflets everywhere-ten pence for ten prints,but if you go over ten it reverts to 30p per print so we stick the memory card in,load em all on(756 pics!),she selects ten,the machine takes payment by debit card-put the card in,pay ten pence,get ten prints. So then she puts the sd card in again,load,another ten for a penny each.

Now already Im getting a tad uncomfortable,cos theres a queue building up to use the machine,cos the others are out of order,but,no,mrs barky carries on regardless-17 ten pence debit card transactions!!!!! 170 prints for a penny each yes,but she has more nerve than me-dont think I can show face in tesco for a while!

for a moment I thought she was going to as well! she was on form today-went into jewellers to get a few links taken out of daughters new watch-the guy says ten quid standard charge no matter how many links we want removed,just as I am about to agree,mrs barky says "ten quid??you having a giraffe?" the guy was soo taken aback he did it for 3 quid!
#11
Wow @ her patience :)

I wouldn't be able to do that, one person in a queue behind is enough for me to panic.
#12
you should let her put the saving to something nice, like a take away for tea! i love a bargain!
#13
We'd get on well! I drive my husband mad doing things just like that.
Be grateful she saves you money!
#14

A tad inconsiderate of those people in the queue behind but each to their own.

Sure. But I'm sure most people only expect to maybe make one transaction rather than 17.

I'm not having a pop, I'm just saying I'd probably be a little more considerate of the people behind me in the queue.

I don't have a problem with the deal or people using it. I'm just saying I'd have probably let someone else have their turn after I'd done mine, or done my shopping after I'd done half and come back later.

But that's just me.

but then you still would have held up people for the same amount of time.

it would have been spread out amongst multiple people rather than one person for the full length but is making 2 peoples day delayed worse than just one?


personally i wouldn't have had the patience but i don't see it as a moral thing.


But that's just me.

Lucky the bank didnt cancel the card for having so many small transactions going through quickly. We have had that for 2 payments of £1.50 within 10 minutes before!
#25
id have done the same!

It's not a moral thing for me. Just a 'politeness' thing.

It just comes down to each person's personal feeling.

Tell me about it, I said don't think so, walked out bought a watch repair kit off ebay for £5 and have done loads of watches, batteries and other stuff with the kit.
#32
nice, I'd be proud of the girl! :)
#33

#34
You know I can see every little ****** here who finds this amusing cursing anyone else doing similar in front of them. Typical lol!
#35
Sod the queue. What do you think they were all going to do? I know how you feel though, but hey, who gives a poo?
