One in front? Tesco are having a laugh!

Have you seen the new Tesco advert feature Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe?



Now it is very funny but I think Tesco are having a laugh. In the advert Borg and McEnroe race around the supermarket to see who can be first out with their shopping. It appears McEnroe has won but the nice supermarket opens a checkout as there is "one in front" and Borg gets served first.

Anyway I was in a branch of Tesco last week and there was more than one in front. I awaited the Checkout manager to open one of the many closed tills and to lead me like a Swedish tennis uber god to be served.

Well the only person close to the checkouts looked at the queues and shot off. Ah I thought the cavalry will soon be here. She returned and carried on scratching at some boxes.

I muttered something like "where's Bjorn Borg when you need him" under my breath and wandered to the customer service desk which was empty.

You mean that you aren't a Swedish tennis uber god.

I'm so disappointed.
