Heard at the checkout



Heard at the checkout in Sainsbury's.

What do you get off this year?

Only Christmas day. We work Boxing day and New Year's day. Still it's a day off.

Crikey, Bob Cratchit managed to screw that much out of Scrooge.

I think I'd probably try to steal as much Christmas food and drink as possible in the weeks leading up...

Thinking of Christmas Past, we have just realised that several items we bought for the celebrations last year, are still lurking on the pantry shelves...

But did Bob get 10% off his groceries I ask? Also dealing with all those nice people who are told that they have exceeded the credit limits on their cards?

Sam - but think of that blighted checkout career when you are picked up by about six security cameras.

Scrobs - nothing perishable I hope. Even so you could probably mince it up and stick lots of brandy in to kill any bugs.

Demetrius - I don't think Scrooge allowed credit so Bob's life may have been rosier than Dickens led us to believe.
