One of the comments on Dick Puddlecote's blog replies has had me in stitches. Out of the mouths of the workers comes pure truth!

Went into a supermarket this afternoon for a packet of fags. The fags were all on display with the shutters up. After queuing I asked the lady who served me if the shutters didn't have to be down. She said that the shutters had to be closed after each sale. I asked why the shutters were up all the time."It's because we're the bloody tobacco counter, that's why!" came the immediate reply. "Every bloody sale is fags or baccy. We've got no time to be opening and closing those bloody things."'Nuff said!!
