  1. ah ok. I used to work in a shop and i worked on the fresh departments, there are times when there just isn't enough room to put it all in the back chillers and has to get out on the shelfs quickly. There is supposed to be a... i can't remember if it's 15 or 20 minute rule. we never used to stick to that rule because it used to take longer than that to get a cage done, but the food was always still cold and we always got through it as fast as we could. but there are some people who don't really care (or think!) and just leave it lying out for ages and ages and go do other things. It can be dow
  2. what do you mean by left out all night? do you mean it's been left at the checkouts and they haven't put it back until the morning when they open up again? If that's the case then yes, they should know that you aren't allowed to do that and it's obviously down to bad training or even maybe lazyness. If you know for a fact food isn't in a chiller and is being put back into the chiller hours later then contact your local council, they have an environmental department.
  3. Tennants next door are using it too? You must be so frustrated! what a complete lack of respect especially knowing you have a young child! I mean what happens when your daughter want's to play in the garden? are you not entitled to be able to keep your daughter safe in your own garden? I've read this whole thread and i'm just dumbstruck by the whole thing. I'd maybe try and find somewhere who grow shrubs and bushes for an amount of time so that they are somewhat mature when you plant them.... if this is at all possible... how about brick wall with tar on the top...... is that alowed? pity y
  4. I ordered something to the value of £67 from this website Welcome to Dreamy Nights Online Used the 'worldpay' that they use and my banks security box came up and all so thought must be a safe site, money came out but everytime i go into the 'track order' section it just says 'pending shipment' after a week i sent a wee nice email just asking when they think it might be shipped. got no reply, left it a few days, sent another... no reply. phoned the phone number on the site... just goes to answer machine. 2 weeks pass so i send another email. no reply. It's been nearly 3 weeks now and i
  5. There are designated people who work in store who go round all day checking the prices and promotions are right. one day the promo works fine and the next it can go to pot. theres one women in our store who works on that department (yes, just one the cut backs on staff in our store over the past few years is unbelivable, when at one point they had say 3 people on a certain department, they now rely on 1) and you can see it drives her mad trying to make sure all the prices are right. it deffinatly is not done on purpose, sometimes the system tells you a differnt story to the checkouts. N
  6. i suppose it depends on the size of the store. i work in a relativly smaller store. if something like that was to ever happen i would be astonished. 3 years? it must have been on the floor under a shelf surely!!?? i understand its probably harder for bigger supermarkets to keep tracks of things. customers like to plonk things anywhere.
  7. Hiya, i work in a local store. been there for quite a long time now.ive always worked on the fresh departments. it will most likely be a printing error as most others have said. very highly unlikely to have been missed for a whole year!!!! if it was i think the whole store would have smelled it!. in my store date checks are carried out every single day on dairy, bakery and produce and some things do get missed but useualy get spotted the next day (not great, but does happen) it is more likely to happen on grocery items though (tins, cereals ect) as checks on them only get carried out every cou
  8. thanks for your advice peeps. what i don't get is that this is the first letter we have been sent and they are threatning to come to our (well, my fiancees mums) door surely that is usually the very last thing they do? like something they would do after several attempts to contact us. but its not. so who do you think i should send a letter to? 02 or these bullys? has 02 passed the debt on? or are they just hired to 'collect' the debt? in which case i should still be able to nogotiate with 02? it says "we have been instructed by our client" on the letter so i'm guessing they are just the messe
  9. Ok, my fiancee and i bought a new build flat in december 2006 and moved in in the jan or feb (first time buyers). as soon as we moved in we sorted out all the bills, and scottish power automatically sent us our bill. all was fine to begin with and i thought the bill was for both electric and gas as it was £40 and people i knew who lived in the same flats said thats how much their gas and electric was too. then they put it down to £22 and thats when i relised it was just an electric bill and not gas. so in the.. june or july i beleive, i phoned scottish power and asked them why i wasnt getting
  10. Compared to my other post, this is a debt we do know about and acknoledge. My fiancee was with an 02 contract, it was like £40 and month and half way through the contract he was posted to iraq and had no use for his contract and was paying £40 every month for nothing. so a few months before his contract was due to end, he enquired about cancelling early stateing his situation. they agreed but told him he'd have to pay a fee, he got a two week compasionate leave and sent of a cheque for this fee and although we didnt get any letters back confirming it, we just assumed that was that. But
  11. Thankyou very much for your response. i'll get that letter filled and printed out tomorrow (on behalf of my fiancee) and sent off.
  12. Hiya, im new here so... hi. I was searching the net for info on connaught collections uk ltd and came across this site. It all started earlier this year when my fiancee got a letter from 1st credit. I opened it because he was in iraq at the time and automatically thought it was some sort of [problem] (well to me their letters don't look very authentic!!) so i just chucked it away, got another one a wee while later.. chucked it away! think i got another one and once again chucked it away!!! then we got a letter from another company on behalf of 1st credit but i can't remember their n
