Waitrose 1, Sainsbury's 0 ........

When I spend money, I like good, pleasant service.  I know, I know but I am just an old fashioned girl.  Last week Waitrose and Sainsbury's were out of items I buy regularly.  I made enquiries as to what had happened, both stores promised to investigate and call me.  Waitrose rang later the same day, ten days later I am still waiting to hear from Sainsbury's. Marks and Spencer are minus 59 at the moment. I won't bore you with the details, it would take too long.

Here is a combination of my favourite store, John Lewis  and one of my favourite singers, Billy Joel.

I am not really wanting to advertise,  I just think this is clever and charming.

Top marks to the lady in the Post Office this morning when I had to organise a complicated,  special, registered package. She dealt with it all with such patience.

Let's all complain when we have bad service and find someone to pass on a commendation for good service. Perhaps that way shopping may become more of a pleasure. I feel better now,  it's a long time since I had a rant.

Now would anyone like to hear my views on Self Service Tills??????????????

I agree Pat and I do give credit where credit is due and I complain when it is not.
My husband calls me a grumpy old lady when I complain but what the heckhe's stuck with me anyway.
Oh and he loves the self serve tills that why I send him shopping--I'm not silly am I.

Self service isn't really designed for OAP's Pat, it's more for younger, more with it shoppers like me!
