Every little helps in a long queue
MY father and I frequently shop in Tesco Formby, sometimes up to three times a week. This is usually a pleasant experience, except for our trip on Friday, February 3.
After completing our weekly shop I needed to get the National Lottery so said to my father I’d meet him in the car. I took my 18 month old daughter with me.
I was stood in the kiosk queue, there were two other customers ahead of me and a few behind.
There were three customer service assistants behind the desk, only one of which was serving.
Now I understand completely, having worked in a supermarket, that it can be difficult but my frustration was that the other two assistants did not seem to recognise there was a large queue forming and stop what they were doing to serve the customers.
While I was standing in the queue, my father attempted to exit the store with his shopping when the alarms went off. He motioned me over to help him. I did so, thus losing my place in the queue.I returned to the kiosk to find the queue had got longer, having to join the back with my daughter in arms.
After ten minutes it was my turn.
I informed the lady serving me that I was flabbergasted at he amount of time it had taken them to serve me. The lady shouted back at me saying they had been busy.
I asked for a packet of Rizla. The lady said ‘Do not shout at me!’ to which I said I was not shouting!
The lady then refused to serve me as I asked to see the manager.
The manager sent the assistant away and said he was sorry.
I was eventually served and as I exited I heard the other lady that was serving say to the manager they shouldn’t have to put up with people like me. Tesco staff should not be making comments such as this about their customers.
My father and I will never be returning to this store to shop.
In at the steep end
IF you have ever wanted to try abseiling here is your chance.
The Medical Charity Myasthenia Gravis Association’s Merseyside Support Group, are looking for adventurous volunteers from all over Merseyside to make a daring 100ft abseil – and if you raise the minimum amount of sponsorship of £100 you can take part for free!
This exciting event takes place at the Leasowe Lighthouse, Wirral, on Sunday, June 10 and absolutely no experience is required as full training is given.
Participants will climb the 130 steps inside the lighthouse and then abseil 100ft down the outside, while enjoying spectacular views over the Wirral.
Myasthenia Gravis is a very nasty muscle weakness disease that has no known cure and can prove fatal. The Merseyside Branch support sufferers, their carers and families throughout the region.
If you would like to abseil while raising funds to support the Merseyside area for MGA, why not join us by calling for a free information pack on 01457 858459 – or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Stop and scoop
I JUST wanted to thank the disgusting individual who walks their (large, I assume) dog through the path between Ince Crescent and Wicks Green/Harrington Green.
It’s such a pleasure to negotiate my pram through piles of your dog’s attractive and fragrant mess.
Each time I pass, there’s just another pile to add to the last.
I’m sure the people living in the bungalows either side appreciate your dog’s mess too. If I ever see you, and catch your dog in the act. I will pass you some bags, and show you what to do. I have had dogs myself for 15 years so I only have a problem with the inconsiderate owners who can’t be bothered to pick up after their dogs.
