Uh... all it means is a screw up.
Common British expression.

The couple have condemned the supermarket chain, claiming they were responsible for nearly destroying their relationship.

If that's all it took, methinks their relationship isn't on very solid footing to begin with.

If something like this happened in my marriage, "adultery" would not be my first thought. I'd think "crazy online shopping software smoking crack again" -- and I'd be right.

Anyone who's shopped at Tescos online and expects an accurate order obviously hasn't done it more than once, their pickers are complete fu*ktards. "Substitutions, hmm, almost the entire list. Great."

Also she's a biatch, and looking for an excuse to make accusations.

this is what we call newsworthy these days? Maybe I should call CNN and tell them about fed ex delivering a package I sent to my sister to the wrong address

After Tesco cleared it all up i would've told the crazy biatch to go fark herself and left.

Tried to shop at Tescos online service with the idea of training my elderly mother in law.
Y'know, save her the hassle, the trip, the walking.
Total pain in the arse, that site.
If they've got gits filling the orders as well, I see no point in it.
Thanks for the info.

/Otherwise, I rather like Tesco.

He could have said that they were for balloon animals and then dump her ass for someone younger to use those condoms on.

Spider Dijon: Otherwise, I rather like Tesco.

Yeah, shop on foot and they've got a pretty good range both in product and price. And the online thing isn't that bad, if you get used to site, tick the "no substitutions" box and expect screwups. So yeah, pretty damn crap really.

To be fair to our country, if you sell alcohol to an underage person (and the police are checking A LOT nowadays, phony customers and everything, you've heard the story about how all our teens are massive drunks) you risk a fine of £1000 ($2000) and a criminal record. At least when I worked in Tescos (briefly) I would make damn sure the person was of age... I'm sure you just got a less intelligent cashier ;)

Yup, that's why my photo ID with a person who looks exactly like me deserves derision as an American because I want to buy an overpriced bottle of liquor.

Haha, well, I had to produce my papers in the US many, many years before we had to over here, and obviously using ID that's nowt to do with the country you're actually in isn't going to do the trick. It's a pretty daft traveler that fails to carry their passport.

Well, in their defence, Americans wont take foreign ID for liquor purchases either in some places. Notably "Salt Lake City". People there refused to sell liquor to 40+ year old men there to watch the Olympics, citing that their ID wasn't a valid ID in the USA.
 
2008-07-23 04:21:46 AM
I'll say what I said on another forum - dude, this is a sign. I'm not normally anti-female, but if she jumps to these kinds of conclusions now, what'll it be like later? Filing for divorce because you had a few late meetings and she assumes you're having an affair? I'd take this as a sign that she really, really doesn't trust you and to get out now...

YoungSwedishBlonde: Yes because I carry my passport wherever I go in Europe.

Well, uh, yeah, you should. You're in a foreign country and it's internationally recognised ID, without it you're f*cked if you get into problems, what if the telescreens take a dislike to you? You Septics should be used to carrying ID papers everywhere you go by now. Research before you travel, not everyone respects *cough* "freedom" *cough* like you guys.

lozzd: Well, if you don't like it, stay in your own shiatty country ;)

Yeah, this pretty much. Two quid seventy five for a pack of twenty five cigarette papers on account of "sin-tax" and we're over priced. Don't make me laugh kid.

Yeah, I know sin-tax is a Bible-Belt state thing, woulda been different in Oregon.

What ID was it? I'm pretty sure they're told to only accept passport, driving licence and certain official ID cards as proof. They were probably knocked back because they're either not used to dealing with foreigners or expected you to have a passport.

Good for SLC Punk. I've had English friends over here pulled over by cops in Texas and be treated with the upmost respect with English IDs.

The only thing the Brits got going for them is they're not as rude as the French.

thenewflesh: They were probably knocked back because they're either not used to dealing with foreigners or expected you to have a passport. [, like all supermarket workers on the planet, they were too stupid to get a job anywhere else]

FTFY

BTW - I narrowly avoided getting arrested for only having my driving licence and Parliamentary ID on me while driving in the US a couple of years ago. Not that I expect higher standards from your police than from our supermarket drones.

Says the chap who told me to go f*ck myself and called him "punk".

Pot, I have a kettle I'd like you to meet.

Besides, cops != cashiers. The police tend to have a little bit more in the way of training. Sorry you had such a bad time over here man but it sound like you suffered from a lack of experience combined with our admittedly appalling customer service. There's good stuff and bad on both sides of the pond mate, but judging an entire country based on a failed transaction at a supermarket isn't the brightest thing I've heard today.

Just a thought, were you in or near London? Yanks gravitate to London and always go away disappointed on account of it being full of rude wankers. Step 100 miles west and it's as different as Ohio is to New York. Just don't go north.

So whenever I walk a block down the street, I should have to provide more than my American drivers license to a Tesco Express in Highgate.

What, so the UK is immune to being assholes? The only places I was treated with respect were the tourist places (presumably because I gave them deflated American currency) and the Kebab shops. My English friends liked me as well because they said I wasn't like a typical American tourist.

England is just like any other country in the world.

YoungSwedishBlonde: So whenever I walk a block down the street, I should have to provide more than my American drivers license to a Tesco Express in Highgate.

When I lived in the States, (TX, ten years) I carried my passport everywhere with me till I got a local drivers ID, had to in order to get anything done. I'd not be so arrogant to assume that an ID from my place of origin would carry any weight in another country. And as I say, you carry photo ID all the time in the US, I don't see a difference. Just don't be a dumbass and lose it.

The points to take from this:

A: I lived in Texas, so I'm calling you out on your "America is so much better" BS. It's not and you're fooling no one.

B: You're also proving our stereotype that Americans are arrogant whiners, which is a real shame since some of you are almost socially acceptable with a little work. But with guys like you around it's no wonder we're get our hackles up the moment we hear one of those annoying nasal accents. Try to accept that you're in a foreign country, not the 51st state and you'll do fine.

I don't know as I cannot see the article, it looks like it has been farked.


However, any person who claims that if they found condomns in their husbands stuff and they don't use them whilst having sex and they are not in an open relationship. If that person claims they would not seriously question them about it, then they are

FRICKEN LYING

I don't know the details and I don't know exactly what went down so I'm only making assumptions on the headline. But it seems some people here would not expect to be questioned. Well put condomns in your bag and let your wife find them and see if she says nothing.

It's a little off topic but did anyone else notice the rating system on the bottom of the link. It allowed you to vote between 1 (average) to 5 (excellent). Apparently it doesn't allow to say that the story sucked so worse they can do is just average.

/Just pointing that out.

Sure, my wife'll just assume that I plan on giving her a good seeing to somewhere other than the marital home. But I guess not everyone enjoys long walks in the countryside...

Well if you use condomns then obviously it would not work but if you don't then I suspect if your not being a smart arse you would be honest about your wife questioning why you have them.

I had a place in central London for a while and I loved it there. It was the most exciting place I've ever lived. The people were just as friendly as in any big city, at least in my experience.

Arthur the Sandwich Maker: Really grasping at straws here aren't you?

Yes because I was so desperate to try and prove America was soooo much better than the UK.

I just said that the British were rude to me.

Guess what? I didn't wear a backwards baseball cap. I just dressed up in an occasional blank Polo or solid color T-shirt.

Yet despite this, I learned to not open my mouth in restaurants because my accent alone would trigger bad service. I'd be the last to order my meal in any restaurant.
