    Not really. I always bring my own bag so I don't get carrier bags (aka a university open day bag) and I charge everyone 5p. Only had to get a carrier bag once when I left my bag at home .-., so it's not every time I go shopping there.

    I think the charity donations that I do with some of my spare change counteract it anyways.

    Depends on the store, how much volume it normally gets and on the time of year. And it's usually a combo of phone contract, sim only contract, mobile broadband contract and accessories.

    Why won't you name the supermarkets? Would really help others who might be looking for jobs to get a feel of how much different companies pay. That's kind of what this is all about tbh

    are you joking? i can tell youve never had a job hahaha, you cant name where you work for legal reasons when you sign your contract, doesnt take a genius to figure that out. If you need a job, apply to as many as possible and just be grateful if you get one. its not just about the pay and if thats all you think it is about then you need to reevaluate why you want to start working.
