Really! I thought you were a lot younger than that Fairygirl

I agree with you,for a child a parents time is the most preciuos thing they can be given,Imagination costs nothing,an empty cardboard box can be many things.

It,s also really annoying when they look in your bag when you can,t scan an item presumably to check you are,nt trying to steal something.

I assume they did,nt check your bag in view of your comment Fairygirl

New rant,

Self scannning tills....

I usually avoid them like the plague but as I only had a few items today and there were big queues decided to risk it,what a mistake..........

First question...."do you have your own bag?"Yes I do,I care for the enviroment,so I put the bag down as requested.....

"unrecognised item in bagging area" is the bag you told me to put down and IT IS ONE OF YOUR OWN SUPERMARKET BAGS WITH YOUR NAME ON can you not recognise it,,,,,,

little red light flashes assistant comes and swipes card to clear.

Put through two tins sucessfully then   .........."unexpected item in bagging area".............HOW CAN IT BE UNEXPECTED?,I HAVE JUST SCANNED IT,IT HAS,NT CREPT UP ON YOU IN SOME SORT OF AMBUSH MANOUVERE....

Little red light flashes assistant comes and swipes card to clear.

Final items two packets of seeds,first packet goes through ok,I put it in the bag and then.............RED LIGHT FLASHES AND SYSTEM STOPS.

Assistant reappears " Oh seeds always do that they are not heavy enough to register in the bagging area,I need to swipe my card to clear and then lean on the bagging area to add some weight,No,you can,t do that yourself with the second packet,as I will need to clear it with my card first.Sorry can I deal with that other flasing red light first."

I WAITED FOR THREE MORE HELPLESS SOLES TO GET THEIR RED LIGHTS SORTED and then,,,,,,,,,,,,,,she returned,swiped her card ,added her weight to the bagging area and I finished and paid.

Who invented these self scanning tills?I want his name.

I don,t think we ever noticed if the weather was bad on our summer hols(usually Cornwall),it was the joy of having new nets to fish around in the rockpools and having your Mum & Dad to yourself all week,you don,t realise it at the time but these ae some of the happiest days of your life.

Today has been so windy it has blown the wisteria off of the trellis arch,OH and I outside wrapped up in thick coats trying to anchor it down to the posts until we can do it properly.
