OK I went into the local chippy here, and ordered for my family and the wife's parents. The total bill came to £17.30
After I had paid I saw the cup type drinks that you can get for kids, they cost around 20p each (those plastic cup drink thingies). Oh can I have a couple of your kids drinks, I asked the assistant. 'Oh they are reserved purely for the kids meals' came the reply. 'Oh well, you've done yourself out of a sale' came my reply!
Why do we do this to ourselves? Some jobsworth manager has told his employees 'these drinks are not for sale'. But this typical British salesmanship is pathetic.
I would have paid £1 for these drinks as my kids would have loved me for it, and the profit would have been in excess of 1000%.
It does my head in how we British cut our noses off to spite our face in the light of being a jobsworth
