Today Was The Last Straw!!
I USED to love going to my local Tesco, at the reduced section, until they came along and totally ruined the experience! It was great to look for real bargains, try various food stuffs I’d not tried before, some I wouldn’t try again and hummus, that was SO cheap like 13p I had to try it ...... strange as it was and it grew on me! But I’d only buy it reduced!
I used to LOVE going to my local Tesco, at the reduced section, but gradually a group of people all of one nationality, slowly took that section over and took all the fun out of it! They know who they are, first they came in twos, then threes, then before we all knew it, there was a gang of them, with all their family members, cousins, aunties, mothers, sisters, neighbours, dads, brothers, uncles, even more cousins and neighbours from across town! Everybody became sick of them, for suddenly we were the minority!
I used to love GOING to my local Tesco, at the reduced section! I went to get some fresh vegetables then one of them said, “This is the front of the queue!” I said, “What queue?” He pointed to the crowd behind him! There must have been fifty of them, so I walked away! I went to the reduced food section, none of them seem to know about this place, I got some bargains there, while they were only having vegetables, I was choosing cooked meat, orange juice, pizza, milk and much more!
I used to love going to my LOCAL Tesco, the reduced section, as I’d walk past to see if any of them were there, my heart would miss a beat for they always were now! And when the poor Tesco Staff came out with the trolley, before they would be swamped but with the other Staff helping to control the crowds, they had to wait till all the vegetables were put in the reduced vegetables shelf and as the Staff who were controlling them so there was no ‘cheating’ they would grab food in their armful and with their waiting family, pile them high into their shopping trolley behind them, then it would be the next person’s turn, but I was on my own, I didn’t see the point of waiting one hour or more in the queue, and my Husband certainly wouldn’t wait to save me a place. This would not work if you were one on your own!
So I carried on enjoying the reduced section in Morrison’s, and one day a neighbour on my road said to me, “Have you seen the crowds at Tesco?” I said, “No,” he said, “They have SO much food, the must waste it!” And he is the same nationality as them! He too was disgusted!!
I used to love going to my local Tesco, the REDUCED section. Two weeks ago I saw my neighbour, the one I just mentioned and he told me, “There was a fight at the vegetable section!!” He said, “Two women had a fist fight, security had to be called and quick!” He said he was, “Really embarrassed and ashamed!” I just shake my head as he spoke.
I used to love going to my local Tesco, the reduced SECTION, but now they have found the other place, where I would get the cooked meat, orange juice, pizza, milk and more! They have started a queue there now! So what happened to the vegetable section? It was moved! But before Tesco moved it, I would sometimes get what they didn’t want, posh hummus in a small almost flat dish, mixed salads in a bag and packs of tomatoes ... all for 13p or less no wondered they scrapped over them! They were like swarms of locusts!
I used to love going to my local TESCO, the reduced section, today I’d been to Morrison’s but had forgot to get milk, so decided to pop into Tesco to get it, when on the way up the escalators to my complete horror I saw two of them with trolleys full with two different types of flowers! One had a trolley full to over flowing of bunches of beautiful flowers, while the other had a trolley full of beautiful purple pot plants. How greedy is that! Everyone was looking at them, but they didn’t care, they just had a stupid grim on their faces!
