this is one for the ladies :D
So I went to buy some - let's say underware; they had a special on at the Red Shed, buy two and get 30% off. Bought my share, paid, and instead of paying for a carry bag, stuffed my purchase in my back pack.

Walked out the door, and this over-eager doorman pounces “could I please check your bag – we have to check all school bags……” – Schoolbag??, my ***, I may be this side of fifty, but I hardly look like 16?? :p

Amused, I tender him the receipt I still hold in my hand, and wait for him to push his nose in my back pack – with the underware lying loosely on top……

Had a nice rosy red shine to him when he pulled his head out of my bag…. :D :D

I'm still not sure if I ought to be tickled at the schoolbag comment[:I], or offended he thought it necessary to check my bag:confused:

There are huge advantages to having your bag or trolley checked on occasion. My daughter and I bought two Steam Mops at the Warehouse the day before we moved her into a new house. Somehow the receipt vanished and you guessed it - one of the mops didn't work. So off we trotted back to the warehouse and they agreed the mop wasn't working and agreed to replace it. Sweet.

Then came the "I will need your receipt" gulp but long story short, the door person (female) remembered us and all was sorted in a few minutes. Well - my daughter is drop dead gorgeous so male of female, she would be remembered!

Just to let you know too that we were advised that the Warehouse is really tightening up on the no receipt policy and without it - no more refunds. I doubt I could rely on the door person to remember me in my mature fifties. laugh

Love it, Blueberry. I suppose every job has it's perks, LOL.

Interestingly, our local C**ntdown store has started asking people if we want our receipts. I'm sure there'd be a few people that would say no and just walk out with their stuff. Could prove problematical if you have to return something. Also, you'd miss out on the fuel voucher (I need my fuel vouchers, LOL). Same thing at the local service station and a few other places I've been to lately - is this a way of saving money on receipt rolls? Or conserving trees? Or what?
Cheers, Mich

I haven't noticed that at our local c*untdown Mich, but I notice it when smaller enterprises ask before totalling off the 'til and then funnily in some cases 00 is entered.... :rolleyes::rolleyes: so I pay with eftpos card instead. :D

I didn't take a receipt at Countdown and the product was off.. wasn't too thrilled with the reception I got from them.. always take them now...

and I would just love the schoolbag comment... have NEVER been asked for ID to purchase wine even when I was young (the 'advantage' of being tall perhaps) but I would KILL to be asked now.. just once.. go on...just ask me.. make my day.. please..

I saw the word "underware" and thought ..... as I do sometimes .... is underware something like hardware, or whiteware? :-)
Do you wear underware and if you do wear underware then when and where do you wear it?

Underware is the new term for a chastity belt. It's a compound word for under garment and beware! :p

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

A Chastity Belt goes Under Where?
