    I'd be likely to have eaten all the doughnuts if I was.

    Oh, I thought you were asking before you admitted to being a pimp, and feeding your bitches.

    they worked so hard u rewarding them with one tesco doughnut each. u sound so generous!

    Can you not ask them today to put aside 70 for tomorrow and ask them when they will be ready?

    Which is why you need 70 doughnuts I guess - you've not got enough sausage meat.....

    Have you considered phoning them? It would seem logical to me.

    and what happens if they haven't made enough by the time you go there if they make any at all?

    Type in Tesco, scroll down and there is a list of individual stores and their local numbers.

    We it's better than nothing!
    Plus it's coming out of my pocket!
    Its a thankyou not a reward, something extra, act of kindness.
    Not something you understand I guess.
    I am not a manager just a trainer and these guys have worked well achieved targets and we are sitting well above targets now so just a bit of a thanks for doing the job properly..

    I'd ring, I have a feeling the doughnuts come in frozen and if they havent got enough they are not going to be able to 'make' you some while you wait, I might be wrong but the icy jam ive had in mine when I bought them early may be an indicator. On that note im sure farmfoods and iceland sell them frozen so why not go this eve and get some and defrost yrself?

    Thankyou,

    heres a sensible answer!!! i worked the night shift at tesco and finished at 6am, the bakery were usually putting things out at that time, so, i would say between 6 and 7 am is your best time

    I'd be annoyed if someone gave me a "Well-Done-Doughnut".

    You're correct! Donuts are supplied to Tesco frozen then defrosted by the bakery the morning before sale. They are relatively fresh as the next days load turn up the night before by trailer.

    Once they are sold out, they won't have anymore, so best time to get there would be 6am - 10am before the store gets busy.

    You ungrateful sod!
    I think it's nice this guy is going out of his way, paying from his own pocket (ok, not much but it's the thought that counts a lot of the time) and using his initiative to do a nice thing for the people he works with.
    If it was me I would think it was a nice gesture.

    I know M&S do bags of doughnuts and yummy cookies, a little more expensive but I know they're baked instore each day. Just ignore some of the comments on here, I think its a nice gesture

    Make sure you get doggy bags too in case they can't finish their doughnut in one sitting.
