Not Happy I Hate Asda

One of my front tyres was down a few psi.Simple, go pump it up.But oh no i went to Asda where the simplest of chores usually ends up being a real flaming pain in the arse This time was no execption.Got to the station to find half the forecourt blocked off with cones (no fuel in the pumps) As i am not stopping for fuel i drive arount the single cone in order to pass the pay booth, as the pump is on the other side.But no they have blocked off the exit .I turn around and wait behind a van at the self service pump.He finishes filling up then gose in the back and pulls out a load of fuel cans, some diesel and some petrol.All this time there are two assistance in one booth (one not doing anything) just staring out of the window, no offer to help or move anything to let anyone through .Finally the van moves and i can get through,to find a car already there at the air pump.I pull up behind and wait.There is no one in it, it's just parked I pull around it and at an angle manage to pull up to the pump only to find it's not working .Back in the car i atempt to reverse out of this space, it's raining i cant see much so i pull out slowly.I see a 4x4 pulling away from the fuel pump but as i am already half way across the exit road still reversing i think nothing of it, but no BEEEEEPPP I stop and return the BEEEPPP to the woman driving the 4x4.But rather than let me out she edges past me shaking her head and laughing .What a *****.All that frigging trouble and i still couldent pump up my tyre
I HATE ASDA
I have had to delete most of my rants because i'm not allowed that many.

I'm increasingly drawn to the idea of food shopping on line. Every time I have to go into a supermarket I come out ready to bust a gut. Kids, noise, queues, car scraped by trollies etc etc. I'm told that some people actually enjoy shopping and consider it a pastime, well, if so, you're very welcome to come and do mine, I'll even pay you !

Re: I Hate Asda

When we lived in London, we used to do most of our shopping online. Worked a treat for most things (not super on fruit and veggies).

We tried on-line shopping for a while....we packed it up after the 3rd time of recieving 8 tins of dog food, various items used to help with/stem the flow of incontinents and all sorts of other horrendous stuff we handn't ordered to begin with....

Visiting the shop is an @rse but at least you come away with what you want
