What's wrong with kebab meat? It's more likely the copious amount of alcohol consumed beforehand that does the damage.

LVanDhal - excellent piece which, if true, only serves to reinforce my own long-held suspicions about supermarkets. Yes, it can be argued they offer a viable service that gives folk a huge range of choice, but that's all part of the big sell imo. Does the bewildering level of 'choice' enable covert manipulation of prices, one wonders? Psychological pressure's a constant presence from the moment a consumer sets foot in a supermarket. Then there's the often contemptuous indifference of managers giving the impression their time is more important than yours, glorified shelf-stackers that they be. Then there's the loud clatter of trays being dropped from waist height by the under-stackers that I can't help thinking they do on purpose to give the impression that hard work's going on on your behalf. Drop your goods tray and become a man of action!

Ok, now you've got your trolley full of 'bargains', time to bond with the check out operative who greets you like a long lost friend. Yet if you engage them in conversation, they're all too ready to start criticising the firm.

Me: "I expect you'll get a big discount on your shopping here?"
Checkout: "You must be joking...more like hard labour.....would you like any cash back?"
Me: "Are you giving it away?
Checkout: "You must be joking!"
Me: "I was joking"
Checkout: "Well, let's skip the jokes coz they time how long it takes to deal with each customer"
Me: "Have you heard the one about the......."
Checkout: "Good-bye.......next customer please!"

Checkout: Would you like that in a bag sir?
Me: Of course, do you think I bring my own?
Checkout: Well, you know, the environment and all....
Me: I don't give a s**t about the environment, I'll only be using it for a few more years, at most.
Wife: Wait for me in the *&#@(* car!!!
Me: Yes dear.
