ings, so I was quite prepared to make up the £6 discount
out of my own pocket simply to do the woman a good turn.
She looked taken aback, and grudgingly started to reach for
her purse. Noticing her scowl, I asked "What's up, Margaret?
You don't look too happy." "I think you've got a cheek asking
for that" she responded. It was my turn to be taken aback.
"Well, considering the fact I'm letting you off with nearly
six quid, I don't understand your attitude. Remember,
we're running a business here, not a charity!"
Asda, would she have expected me to wave her through the
checkout with a box of biscuits without charging her? Who
goes into a shop looking for goods or services without ex-
pecting to pay? I'm still staggered by her attitude.
Too true, mate - too bleedin' true.
