    That’s what customer service is though…

    Smiling through gritted teeth, while a customer insists, INSISTS, that you do indeed stock purple bananas, that Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is a real person, that they actually wear size 8 shoes, when YOU know better.

      This. Everyone should have to do it for at least six months. It would cure the rude quite quickly.

    I’ve always found the staff in Lidl to be extremely helpful, courteous, cheerful and somehow kinda sexy.
    -I’m beginning to think that some of them aren’t even Irish.

      ‘That’s not passive aggressive.’is probably the most passive aggressive statement a non-passive aggressive person could say without appearing passive aggressive.
      – And yes, I’m being passive aggressive

      Up yours.

            I’m feeling so lonely and unwanted in the face of the Mildred and Bertie romance #green with envy :-(

    My local Aldi has this deadly green and red traffic light system on the tills. I love watching the mad dash everyone makes to be the first one there when a new till opens up… but not as much as I love getting there first.

    Lidl staff are sound out. I just dislike the implied patronising German imposed austerity of telling us to ‘Live … a little’.
    Fupp off with your high horse and give me my cheap own brand wheatabix, erm, Bixies!

    My local is good, fasht and mannered. Never spend more time and money than i have to. And get a smile with my receipt every time. Tesco across the road is just as fast at checkout, but some customers love chatting with checkout folks, regardless of queue length. Can be quite testing after work :-)

      My sympathy lies with the person on the checkout, eager to process the elongating queue, desperate to get rid of the a55hole who wont shut up, pack their messages and go home… Like what a civil person would do.

        They look like lonely people. It can be obvious sometimes – attempt of personal conversations with strangers picking up food from the shelves.
        It’s sad, that’s why I don’t kick up a fuss. But once a dude got quite aggressive with me as I was politely bidding him goodbye, having thought the small talk was long enough.
        Check out staff must be bulletproof folks. Or saints.
