Usually the manager organises the reduced items.. and big chain supermarkets are extreemly tight on security
Thats my plan out of the windows then. But they don't check do they if its for only one or two items...

Lol, wow... the sneakiest thing that i was aware of was putting fruit and other items that need to be weighed at a lighter weight or alternatively saying that there are actually less items than there are... of a multiple item sale, say you wanted to buy 25 bottles of wine, the cashire could just say that you are buying 20... however at tesco you have a camera on you every single minute that you are working there... i wouldn't test it

What is the point in being a vegan, I'm sorry but i cannot see it. Why won't you eat eggs and milk i mean, nothing got murdered.
Quality of life
Battery hens live in tiny cages and get treated like crap, even barn eggs you cant be too sure
Milk = agressive milk farming, also once the animals are no longer useful they do get killed they dont lead a normal life.

I only eat free range eggs and I'm trying to give up milk but cant find a brand of soya that doesnt make me feel sick.

If i was to raw free range eggs from a supermarket does anyone know the chances of getting ill from it?
