Greggs – Hounslow – Disabled toilet – Free for all!

Having lunch with a friend in Greggs Cafe in Hounslow yesterday, I noticed several customers trying to get upstairs to use the toilets. The door leading to the stairs was locked. Only staff were using the door using a code on the door lock.

I asked a member of staff as to why the door was kept locked. I was told it was because the door was broken. (Didn’t look broken to me as the staff seemed quite capable of using it). This member went on to say how it was ok as customers could use the other toilet…….The DISABLED toilet!!! NO, IT’S NOT OK!!!!!

I have IBS, my stomach could turn at a moments notice and I need to rush to the toilet……Oh but I can’t use the toilet as one of your abled customers is using the DISABLED toilet because Greggs have never heard of a fecking DOOR STOP!!!!!!!!!!!

Come on Greggs, pull you god damn socks up!!!!!!!

Tesco Mobile – Manager using cheap tricks!!

My mobile phone contract is up with Tesco Mobile, so like the majority of us, I looked around for the best deal. I had my eye on a particular phone but not overly bothered if it turned out to be too expensive and I had to take a Sim only plan, as my phone at present is more than adequate.

I found a deal with Sky which was actually a great deal. So I visited my local Tesco Mobile store to check out the size and feel of the Huawei P20 Pro. Due to my hands and the poor dexterity I have, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a phone that was going to be too big for me to hold and operate. While looking at the phone, the manager (or at least who I assume was the manager) came over to offer assistance. I said I was ok and just looking. I commented that their deal wasn’t as good as the deal Sky was offering. He wanted to know more, so I explained the deal. He said, “ah yes, that price won’t include VAT”. I thought how strange as I saw nothing on the deal to suggest this. So when I got home, I checked the deal again and couldn’t see anything. To make sure I had all the facts before deciding if I would go with this deal, I phoned Sky. I was right, the price did indeed include VAT. So was this a sales tactic by the manager?

So now I needed to know the exact end date of my contract with Tesco and I needed my PAK code, as I would like to keep my number. So While in my local Tesco, I popped into the mobile section to ask these questions. The same manager was there. I told him the deal did, in fact, include VAT. He replied, “On the 24 Swap deal if you don’t swap your phone at 24 months for a new phone, you then have to pay the remaining balance owing on the phone”. He went on to say how a member of his family used to work for Sky so new the plan. Well, I was horrified at the prospect of having to pay a lump sum at 24 months into my contract, as I had just signed up to the deal the night before. I rushed home extremely worried that I would have a huge lump sum to pay. So once again, on the phone to Sky. Once again, what the Manager at Tesco Mobile told me was untrue!!

Pretty disgusting behaviour for a so-called professional! All he achieved was to make sure I never deal with Tesco Mobile again. Lost any trust I had for them!! Was it jealousy? A cheap trick to get me to stay with Tesco? I suppose I will never know.
