I have to get this off my chest:

I was in Tesco earlier and finished my bit of shopping, I was walking up the tills looking for a free one or one that was almost free.
I past this nobhead with his wife and he looked at me kind of funny, he kept on looking as I past so I turned to walk back looking for a till when he suddenly walked up and put his hand in my basket, he pulled out some paste I got and said, "What's that?"
I was so suprised I was taken aback, I thought what a cheeky sod to do that, I never got chance to answer as he went back to his wife but then the pair of them started smirking.
What was that all about, I was wound up by then, so I ended up at the self service checkout but as I had finished I ended up almost bumping in to this moron again.
He again asked me what the paste was, this time I had time to think. I said, "Keep under your hat but it is better than Viagra, a mate put me on to it and it's bloody fantastic!"

Then I felt a bit better, becuase he was such a nobhead he wouldn't realise I was taking the pi$$, till he went and bought some of course.

[:D] Oh, sorry, yeah the paste.

Well I keep trying different things to either add to a bait or even as it is. It was Tamerind (spelling), it turned out it was more like a syrup so I added it to my groundbait, it was a bit like Treacle.

Reminds me of that Jonathon Routh "Candid Camera" prank from the early '60s, with this guy in a cafe losing chips from his plate to a hand coming from underneath his table. [:D]

Tamarind is supposed to be a great additive to groundbait. I bought a block from sainsburys not realising that it was full of seeds etc and not the extract. I Boiled it up and used the juices after.

Tamarind is fantastic, get it from your local asian shop for about 30p a block. Be careful though as it can have a very bitter flavour.

They come on keyrings so you don't have to scrat around looking for a quid. You just clip it back on when you have done. [:T]

Try working in one mate.

I used to do overtime and worked on internet shopping for about 5 months, it was a pain in the arse. Your trying to do your jobs and all you get it customers barging past, massive amounts of abuse as well. I've been close to squaring up to someone once because of what he said to me. People don't have manner nowadays

Its called professionalism mate. You obviously cant keep calm under pressure. Just be well mannered and you have nothing to worry about. Regardless of what job you do its what you have to do to be good at it. Ignore their comments and let them go over your head mate.

Well done for walking away but you shouldnt let people wind you up. If they get abusive just tell them to leave the store, your manager should back you up if they complain. Theres no reason to be made to feel that way in any Job.
