    What a sad post this is.
    So basically you’re saying that people should look out for themselves and not bother to care for anyone else?

    That selfish attitude is why this mess is going on for so long. People thinking “well it doesn’t affect me so I’m not bothered about how it affects others.”

    In fairness I think he's just saying what the sad reality is, not what he thinks it should be.

    I have a family member who works for COOP. they received a 10% bonus for a period (about a month if I remember correctly) for any hours worked. They also had a free meal deal each day for the same period. This was Tipton way but I assume it would be universal.

    i wasnt going to respond for fear of retribution.

    i didnt.
    It was chosen for me as to not offend , i have no recourse to change it.

    in addition , i have given my word not to post on the forum again ( my decision )

    At the moment i am still an active member so will continue to browse occasionally.

    No it's certainly not just you. I have just had to go to the other side of Uttoxeter so called into Tesco's on the retail park on the way back.

    No anti bacterial spray for the trolleys, no handgel, no marshalls, no one way system compliance, no social distancing. I was crapping myself so grabbed what I needed and left as quickly as possible.

    Totally the opposite of the Stafford store so
    I shan't be visiting that branch in a hurry!!!

    At least it will all be over on Saturday and we can return to the carefree normal, whatever that is nowadays!!! Well at least until the second spike happens.

    They better be, or I won't tell him when the next secret wine offer is on.

    Mmm, odd - but an easy mistake to make - both live out in Yokelsville.

    It's a bit trumpesque - if we don't tell them how many have tested positive they'll never know.

    When you have a trumpesque electorate, you would be a mug not to use it to your personal advantage...
