There's a guy who works on the tills in Asda whose name tag announces him to be 'Wisdom'.
'Faith' works behind the fish counter.
Today I spotted 'Grace'.
I'm beginning to think that there's something going on.
Yeah yeah yeah. That's nothing. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse all work in my local branch of Safeway.
"I'm Pestilence. How can I help you?"
"I'm looking for the soap powder aisle."
"It's just over there, near where Famine is stacking the loo rolls."
I have a horrible suspicion that Pestilence also works in my Asda. It just doesn't say it on his name badge. I always feel like I should wash the sandwich wrapper after he's handled it at the till.
that's funny, everyone at my asda is called george.
Ohhh, the agony...the sheer, unadulterated agony...
Very good, SM. Have a Hobnob.
The only thing to do is to apply for a job at your local Asda, calling yourself Resentment Bridgett.
There clearly is something going on. Wisdom is wasted on the tills. Maybe it was just Charity's tea break, though.
I've just got on from a stressful shopping experinece at Tesco, I venture out into the blogosphere for a little light relief, and the whole supermarket nightmare comes back to haunt me courtesy of your otherwise-wonderful blog...
Shame there's no Hope really.
*snicker* Geddit? No Hope! Haha... sorry.
Pardon my ignorance..but what is an Asda? :) be well Peace
Asda is Britishese for Wal-Mart.
In our Sainsbury's there's an Imelda Pepper on the tills, which I think is a wonderful name.
In the city centre branch of Game there used to be an assistant named Clint. At that time the assistant who served you had their name printed on the receipt in block capitals. Unfortunately for poor Clint the L and the I always ran together... I don't think he works there anymore.
Our checkout chicks (and chaps) at Coles have regular nametags, but it's their login numbers rather than their names that come up on the fancy-schmancy computer screen registers (the ones that display to everyone in the queue behind you that yes, you are indeed buying tampons!)
As a result, I've commenced many a transaction with the cheery greeting on the screen, "Hello, my name is No. 2!"
For some reason I'm reminded of that scene in 'Me, Myself and Irene'...
