    I went to the local ASDA today for a few items etc. I promptly made my way to the self service belt. As I was about to put the items on the belt an assistant said that is for cards only you need the next one for cash. I looked at her in amazement as to suggest I would not be deemed to have cards.

    There's a new young man , who has been put on the self checkout section of our Tesco and I was quite amused when, last week, he approached me, asking if I knew how to use the machine; just me, so I must look too old to cope by myself.

    My Sister, a high earner, walked into a BMW Garage and was approached by a Salesman.
    He said " The Second Hand Cars are round the back"
    She walked out.

    She was probably trying to pre empt avoiding the constant stream of people putting their shopping through then calling the supervisor to sort out the transaction. Quite tiresome if you are the member of staff doing that all day.

    I think if you shop at ASDA then you leave yourself open to the perception that you are unlikely to have cards, often made worse if you wear dirty grey joggers or nightwear when shopping

    When I was in M&S buying milk for work, an assistant was pointing out to people that a particular self service machine was only accepting cards and if you were paying cash would you please wait for another machine. Nobody got offended - must just be customers in A s d a that take offence to this sort of thing.

    My friends work for a supermarket. Her work there are 10 self scans and three of them are used the most - customers too lazy to walk to ones further away. Even they wait until one of these three are vacated. The coins are topped up daily and the notes in the change box every Sunday. So it's fairly common that they close these three on Saturday as ran out notes. Don't bother with putting card only signs up as customers don't read signs.

    Also many customers don't understand if your shopping comes to £7.02, to get £3 change, they need to put the 2p first then £10 note. The transaction ends if the cash paid is equal or greater to the amount owed.

    I would explain to her she can put the items back on the shelf and leave.

    Basically means your bitter attempt to be spiteful wouldn't have worked!
