    Not doing porridge today are we?

    Was annoyed with OH yesterday. I got him 12 packets as its one of the few jealthy things he actually likes to eat. He;s a very picky eater and spends the day snacking on sweets.
    Anyway, he said, o why dont you go this evening (yesterday evening) and get some more. Im like, Ive got enough and its too cold. He says o think of all the money you will save over the year. This is the bit that gets me. He thinks nothing of sending money abroad to his mum (which I dont mind) but doesnt shop around for the cheapest way to do it and it cost about 40 in fees each time. But if I mention that its o all you go on about is saving money. Bit ironic isnt it

    Good morning all, lovely morning out there, cold and frosty and bright

    Omg deep conversations tonight.
    Did God create other planets and if their is life on them did he create that life.
    Do Christians believe in Dinasours. How can they.
    Who created God.

    I think my head hurts and it's time for bed

They are going to have to start giving him the right answer soon or he will only ask us the "deep" questions

    For PC reasons, I cannot answer that

They were in full bloom and thought would barely last till Christmas. They lasted till end of January Was really pleased. Will get some more like that if the amex deal happens again this year and the local garden centre is one of the places lol.

    Is this a store where they watch you/pounce on you at SS or are the voucher BC and receipt TC still working at SS (obviously in another A, not the store at which staff pulled you away from the SS and stopped you putting the vouchers through)?

    At this store, they worked before today on SS but I didn't get as far as pressing buttons before the SA saw I had an APG in my hand on this occasion and told me it wouldn't work on SS and took me off to CS.

    It may be that it would still technically work (with the typing in method) but they have decided to do a check or someone has been faced with people scanning and failing so assume it does not work.

    I have chatted to till supervisors before and they are well aware that every system update on the tills seemed to make it worse and they still dont seem to have been able to resolve it. It should be so straightforward - scan voucher, scan receipt, done.

    its store specific, either the manager has a bee in his bonnet, or some customers are abusing.
