will just tell you one

But I cant stand it in Asda/Tesco and you are at the check out and the cashier reads your magazine you are buying

I know its a bit petty grin but they always do it

cant they get one in their lunch hour lol

Yesterday one actually turned my mag round so it was right in front of her and had a good nosey at it!!!!!

I wasnt in a huge hurry, but she stopped putting the food through whilst she had a nose at it!!!

felt like saying "dont stop" !!!!!!!!

Just thought I would share with you!!!! grin

I haven't had that yet but what does annoy me is when they hand you all your money, cards and receipts in one go and then start putting the next customers shopping through and you are still trying to put everything away...aargh!

Lol, they would be nosing even longer then!!!!!!!!!!!

I think its a bit rude of them really when they should be serving you!

The other thing they do is make comments on what you're buying. I never know what to say!

It is one of those irrational annoyances!

I don't mind someone glancing at a headline, or commenting that they've "not seen those before" or "they look nice" ..... it's just being friendly (and sad though it is, Tesco banter is one of the few 9-5 opportunities I get for so-called adult conversation as a SAHM, and someone who works from home eves & weekends).

However, just like you Anniebear, I had one woman stop - completely stop that is - to have a read through my mag. I didn't say anything but thought I'd stand there to see how long she'd stay engrossed for. It was literally 3 or 4 minutes before I said "excuse me ....." and it was only then she carried on scanning, without any apology or acknowledgement that she was being a cheeky moo.

It really riled me because I felt it was rude and unprofessional, and she was holding me up.
