I'm gonna go in, get my mum to drive as her car is in the garage. Reckon it'll be pretty easy though, can't imagine many customers think anything on GM is absolutely essential.
It's coming close to 10 inches now and still snowing.
yeah we've got like 6-7 inches, blargh
Really bad down here, we didn't do any deliveries today, and online dept ended up putting stock out instead as hardly anybody else turned up.
I definately wont make it to work tomorrow because of the snow, but i was supposed to hand in my notice tomorrow, If I cant get in for the rest of the week what should i do?
bearly anyone made it in to my local branch today (in south east, surrey), and there was no milk what so ever, no veg, and no uht milk (or similar) i ended up with evaporated for my coffee, though the only reason i made it to get shopping was cause i live about 2 minute walk away in normal weather (10 in the snow since i had to wear huge boots) and since it was up a hill the deliverys can't make it, and it was the same situation in waitrose, all very fun.
don't know how work is here but everyone who can has been making it in [night shift] so...
Where I am the likes of Boots, WH Smith, Marks, even Tesco shut early this afternoon cos it got so bad. Staff before money I guess.
Has your store ever closed early to make sure you get home? Mine hasn't.
Deliveries cancelled at our store today, probabaly be the same tomorrow as we're expecting more snow. Not sure if many shoppers went in to work as they are allowed authorised unpaid if they cant get in? Things must be bad!
it's funny how when the carpark is full of snow, customers just park anywhere lol, noticed when i was walking where the zerbra corssing should be (if it werent cobvered by snow) there was a car in front of it.
when your the first one in the car park you can set the trend where peaple park, park in 4 bays then a car will park directly behind you etc. then wait for snow to melt to see everone not in one bay. parking tickets for all (not sure if car park enforcers give you ticketrs for being bay greedy)
Only 5 of us today (only me + 1 staying till 10)
no one on night shift came in
20 customers max (and it is a pretty big department). Basically it cost them more to keep the store open than it would have been to close a few hours early.
do i call the absence number if i can't get into work due to the snow as i don't drive and my dad said his car won't manage on the roads - i think taxi's are not running either
