Someone needs to have a word with this lot.
This is the third time since the beginning of this year that, for whatever reason, I’ve triggered the alarm upon leaving the shop and been rapidly ‘jumped’ by their over-zealous security guards who must be bored stiff. The first two times I complied and let them search my bag and produced the receipt but this afternoon I made a scene and snapped at one of them which saw management appear from nowhere who followed me out to my van where they made some half-arsed excuse about the increased volume of customers having an effect on their sensors (yeah, right).
I’m a familiar face (without my mask) and admittedly am a bit scruffy in comparison to other customers because during the week I’m normally in work clothes but even the desperate don’t shoplift wearing a hi-viz with company livery on the back and drive a work van with same said livery painted all over it underscored by a landline. I’ve met cats and dogs who are smarter than Bell Green Sainsbury’s management.
