    Coronavirus: Is this the end of physical cash? Will we go completely electronic?

    Something which was very heavily reduced! Think it may have been a garlic flatbread.

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    I’ve managed to get bread flour and yeast recently. The flour is pretty easy to get hold of, yeast on the other hand comes in far less frequently unfortunately.

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    I don’t understand why you would want to encourage customers to do smaller shops anyway, all it will do is encourage people to go shopping more often, which is surely completely missing the point. If you have people coming in less frequently, say weekly, which would only be an issue for a very...

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    Quicker for you maybe, but slower for the population as a whole.

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    I don’t understand people saying that we won’t be able to queue for just half an hour, it’s really not that bad, just bring your phone! Even when it’s a bit wet it’s really not that bad. Those who aren’t capable of waiting already have arrangements already made, these can just continue surely...

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    I’ve no idea why they have acted the way they have, but I agree, as a white male myself I haven’t felt the need to get angry at any supermarket workers! (Slightly different as they’re my colleagues but you get the point). And I don’t think at any point I suggested it was due to age or race...

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    My evidence for that is the fact that they are the only people who have had any problems when I've told them only one person per household is allowed in! And it is also the only group of people who have decided they should shout and swear at me, so sorry, but at least where I am that is the...

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    If one of you has the virus asymptomatically it’s highly likely the other one does too, increasing the risk to all the other customers, and more importantly staff who are very much needed. As I have said before I think it is very unlikely you are twice as quick going around together, so you are...

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    It is so funny when people do that, thinking whoever on the door is completely stupid because they work for a supermarket, and then get caught out and annoyed. It‘s also massively selfish but there you go. Interestingly throughout this whole thing the people most annoyed haven’t been the young...

    Could the Coronavirus 'burn out' in the UK?

    The, rather controversial, idea of letting life return to ‘normal’ ish for, while locking up the elderly and vulnerable does seem to be a fairer way to come out of this than any other, making it far less disruptive due to lower rates of hospitalisation in younger people.

    Forum upgrade complete

    Agreed, this functionality is something that I think we really need back!

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    You can wait outside, and bring everything to the front in a trolley if you need two people to carry it home.

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    I don’t see how it’s a strange assertion at all, but I’ll try to explain it simply. A couple going in to a shop with a limited number of customers in it takes up 2 spaces, instead of one. When this happens every single customer afterwards needs to wait outside for longer than they would’ve...

    Supermarkets and Covid-19

    In what way is it ridiculous? If a couple is in the shop then they are stopping one other person doing their shopping, slowing down the queues for everyone. Obviously there are exceptions, like shopping with small children, but how is it fair to make everyone else have to wait longer?

    People Who Take Ages At The Supermarket

    Waitrose is anyone with a blue light card, and I suspect all supermarkets give priority access to their own staff.

    Sir Philip Rutnam's Resignation

    If you were accused of bullying staff at work, do you think you be let to keep your position while under investigation, or would you be suspended? I see no reason why PP should keep her position after such accusations have been made, if they transpire to be false she can be reinstated. However...

    Questions for people who have used e-tickets

    I understand that, but apps which are capable of displaying e-tickets, such as Trainline or Google Pay, should be able to increase brightness to avoid the problem I was originally talking about. I know that Google Pay definitely increases brightness, although unfortunately only LNER offer it as...
