I am sure they dont make their money in the cafe....its just a service that is good for lonely hearts and those with no car who wait for a taxi,or read all the papers they supply FOC.

While we are on the subject our ASDA cafe closed last year and is now the music section.

Used to go there quite often.If you worked it right you could get a bargain.eggs 25p each and toast 15p slice. from the all day breakfast menu individual items.

so you could have double egg on 2 toast for 80p !!!

No wonder they closed it.

Morrisons is quite good but I dont really like spending my money there as Ken has lots of connections with our arch rivals in Rugby League.... Bradford Bulls .......ha ha

I hate self service with a passion. Bought some flowers in there on a Saturday morning to take to a friend. Anyhoo, massive 'saturday morning' queues so went to self service, after all, it was only a bunch of flowers. Wish I hadn't bothered as it took forever and a barney with the old wifey who stands about with the large keychain with a load of cards hanging from it.

 

Firstly, it didn't recognise the item, then it did the weight on the belt thingy that others have experienced, then it insisted I get a member of staff, so the wee wifey storms over and I have to start again.............after 2 or 3 goes of this, I say, "Look, I've not got time, I'll just get them elsewhere". Wee wifey says, "It's gone through now, you have to pay". "No I don't - I'm leaving as this has been a complete waste of time". I'll get security". EH? What for? Getting fed up of faffing about with a poxy self-service machine for 20 mins just to buy a bunch of flowers which I'm not even taking out the shop. My killer comment to wee grumpy wifey? "Grow up" :rolleyes: Even if she was about 60.

But Tesco is usefull for one thing,

I have a big dog & I was buying a large bag of Winalot in Tesco and was standing in the queue at the till.

A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Winalot Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and the way that it works is to load your trouser pockets with Winalot nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the queue was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.

Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned.

I told her no, it was because I'd been sitting in the road licking my balls and a car hit me.

I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.

DO PEOPLE REALLY WONDER WHY I BUY DOG FOOD

Long time ago in a galaxy FAR FAR AWAY, there lived an elf who shot banks for a living.........

Now through the power of the internet there is the CONSUMER ACTION GROUP,

 

Watch out they are getting crafty those pesky CRITTERS!

 

Banks will tell you their charges are transparent!

So is the invisible man but that does not mean he is fair or lawful.

 

DONT GIVE UP! FOLLOW THE CAG ADVICE AND RECLAIM YOUR CHARGES.

CAPITAL BANK! YOU ARE NEXT.

Not at all,feel free to pass it on to whoever you think will laugh at it,

If there was no laughter the world sure would be a sad place,

When I buy brocolli, loose, I tend to snap of as much of the stalk as possible as I know it won't be eaten.

 

Boris I read this thread last week & thought to myself you have a very valid point & when I went shopping I told hubby about it too.

 

However on Easter Sunday we decided to go out for Sunday lunch to a restaurant which was a bit more expensive than the one we normally use.

 

 

If you can imagine the look on my face when meal turned up with brocolli stalk an all, my husband also looked at his with shock :o

 

We ended up in hysterics, tears running down our face. Our kids were less than amused, we embarrassed them beyond belief but as they were not in on it they couldn't see the funny side.

 

Payed more got less, we'll stick to our usual in future, not sure the posher one wants us back anyway, we lowered the tone :)

Hi everybody, I have been reading this thread with much interest, I work for Tesco, but believe me I am the last one to stick up for them, they can be very good, but when they are bad they are awful. I work on the checkouts, and some of the customers can be really obnoxious. Anyway to settle the argument over the food in the cafe, the catering has been taken over by an outside contractor now, even in the staff restuarant and we have allsorts of problems, food beng overcooked and cold, or not even being cooked properly.

Since I found this thread now..... :lol:My sis-in-law works for Tesco (well, she does usually but shes on maternity leave at the minute cos her babba's due in early Sept) when she was pregnant with her first her manager (who was apparantly not a very nice person) said he was going to see to it there was no more maternity pay for any of the employees who got pregnant as he couldnt see why they had to pay anyone who couldnt work because of a self inflicted condition!!!He soon changed his mind after my bro-in-law (who is lovely but trust me you dont want to be on his wrong side!!!) threatened to rearrange his face :lol: :lol: thats tescos for you!!!
