Sainsburys

Went this evening (a beer recommendation from the real beer thread) and I have to say it was an utterly miserable experience.

Called Mrs Pat as I walked in and gues what, signal immediately drops as I connect. I really love walking in somewhere having to shout at the top of my voice

An attempted text bounced back (naturally!) and, surprise, surprise, none of the promised ale was on offer. At least I think so as I could not check the thread because I have no signal on my 'phone.

Just to round off the experience the self check out asked me, halfway through, "do you have a nectar card" but gave me no option to type in yes or no. So why flippin' ask?

F&@k you Sainsburys!
Miserable dump.

No 2 on the Git list

Are you folding?

I am the chief executive of sainsbury. Please accept my sincere apologies.

As compensation please help yourself to a pack of any beer or lager and a box of any pork scratchings on your next visit.

Just give this code at the check out:4982391 and mention "My Coupe Is a GTV" with the emphasis on the word Coupe.

This offer will expire in 48 hrs.

Definitely not. Highly illegal. Phones often don't work in supermarkets because such shops are just large metal boxes, and large metal boxes are excellent at blocking weak radio waves.
