Ugly bloke staring back at me when I go to self checkout now!

I can't explain just how freakish I'm finding these new checkout cameras in asda, am I just old or something ?

That's weird, as I'm sure I have a similar thing in my bathroom mirror. But having said that it's Asda's way of saying "Go on steal something if you dare, you are being watched, and you'll never get away with it."

I just look right at the camera, blow a kiss and give a cheeky little wave. There's many a time I put a smile on the checkout girls face.  Grin

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

On the subject of stealing two days before Christmas SWMBO and myself did a large Tesco shop (Scan as You Shop). We packed things in our own bags neatly as we went along. At the checkout we were selected for a check which was the first time for almost a year even though I often go twice a week. The fella just looked at a few items near the top of one of the bags and let us go. I mentioned that if anyone was going to steal wouldn't they put those items near the bottom to which he replied that as they are so busy the store isn't bothered about a little bit of theft at this time of yearShocked

At a guess, to say they had done so to meet their quotas, which seems to be a big thing of this century... Crazy2

Re: Ugly bloke staring back at me when I go to self checkout now!

Hmm got a big ADSA's near me, but I hardly go in there. If I am bored I may do.

It's not very nice there, and so I don't want to purchase anything in there - let alone steal anything.

Plenty of other places in the area which are better. Got Co-Ops, Tesco, Morrisons and small Sainsburys.
