Why do people assume that the only reason people prefer to have their shopping delivered is because they are lazy?   8-)

I've seen 80 and 90 year olds do their own shopping. Anyone who can't or won't do the same is either lazy or weak.

I don't think I'm being unfair. :)

I do.

Is this the thing you Humans call..."Empathy"?  >:D

They maybe 'weak' from a mental and/or physical health condition temporary or long term, or even old age its self.

To be fair to Vlad, in Communist Russia, being weak, old or disabled is a massive inefficiency, our social system has these people being utilised any way they can to be as useful as possible..

Well said, Comrade! There will be a place for you in the Presidium after our Glorious Revolution!

There is a place for Nomad and his ilk as well, of course. Unfortunately, it's in a Gulag... >:D

Hmmm by the way, if we are expecting strike are you all receiving ridiculous amounts of stock to the store? We r stacking pallets of goods one on top of another as we have no room to accept new delivery. Just imagine yourself two pallets of beer stacked up. Its f***ed up as people waste time condensing  but no one is filling the shop.

West Lothian staff accuse Tesco bosses of ‘blackmail tactics’ over strike action

No change there then.

Tesco aren't the only competition in town, the director has made the big mistake of approaching this from a narrative of arrogance and being a monopoly when there are plenty of better payers in the sea.

At this rate only the Tesco loyal and the hardline conservatives will shop at Tesco even though availability will be better everywhere else. Especially with Amazon coming along to take away market dominance, parring off resources essential to availability seems akin to shooting yourself in the foot right now.

Yes Reading are one of the depos that will be striking on December the 20th if the demands of the strike are not met before then.

Tesco could be sued over threat to sack striking staff

Tesco has broken the law by trying to avert a strike with threats of pay cuts and redundancies, a trade union has claimed.

“Going beyond the four per cent increase… would prevent us from continuing to run the business efficiently which enables us to preserve and create jobs”.

They've got a nerve havn't they. They make more millions in profit almost every year and still try to cut jobs and benefits at any chance. The more honest comment would have been something like: 'We need to keep cutting wages in real-terms so as to show an increased profit at the end of the year so that we can pay ourselves nice bonuses and pat ourselves on the back. Screw the staff on the ground who actually do the real work'.

I'm also behind our comrades in the DC's.

I hope DC Livingston stick to their guns and call Tesco's bluff.

Pretty much every Tesco manager is a coward; it's almost a requirement for the job. As soon as they see you're not impressed or intimidated by their threats, they will bottle it.
