12 things only people who've worked in Tesco will understand

Let’s get ready to rumble!

1. First of all, customers can be amazingly rude

Especially the people who think it’s OK to fling pens, Clubcards and bags for life at you. That’s really nice.

2. You 100% judged people by how they packed their shopping

Put the heavy things on the bottom, for god’s sake! Do you know nothing?

3. The cages were out to get you

They are trying to sabotage you at every level. They want to hurt you physically and emotionally. They are not to be trusted.

4. The most dreaded letters in the English language were MST

AKA Modern Stock Take, AKA a day of interminable boredom.

5. You automatically asked about bags and Clubcards without even thinking

Whoo new #tesco #tescoclubcard..mine about to

So if a customer told you they didn’t need a bag it completely messed with your poor work-addled brain.

6. Getting ready to ‘rumble’ meant something entirely different to you

7. The constant papercuts were a bitch, though

It’s a wonder you have any fingers left.

8. You really felt for the staff member doing reductions

There’s always a horde of people standing behind them, watching, waiting for those dealz.

9. And feared for your life when there was a special offer on

Easter eggs on 3 for 2? You better take cover.

10. You were devastated when people ruined your carefully stacked bananas

Excuse me. This is my ART.

11. There’s a special place in hell for customers who don’t leave stuff back where they found it

Especially frozen food. What kind of person leaves a regretted tub of Ben & Jerry’s in the fruit aisle? A monster, that’s what.

12. But despite everything, there was some craic to be had with your colleagues

Finally had my discount card #tescowanker! 👌

And the 10% (Ten whole percent) discount didn’t hurt either. Happy shopping…
