When your doctor tells you that you must lose weight, gives you tablets for it and says they must be taken with food...

tablets for weight loss are likely to be appetite suppressants, i.e. stimulant, which, at a guess, need to be taken with other food, because they might be too strong if you've swallowed them with an empty stomach?

You put your shopping bag down beside a self checkout point and it shouts "Unexpected item in bagging area".

It's a bag!!!!!

You can take a cigarette lighter on a plane. Although they can make pretty much all the materials flame retardant, what's stopping some nutter taking his jacket off and starting a fire!.

£26 a bottle in Waitrose for what is, essentially, cordial. Yet another thing that, on paper, should fizzle out but will actually become a “thing” and make some c*nt into a millionaire.

I've never used one myself but whenever I see someone using one of those self serve tills at the supermakets there's always a customer service person standing over them either waiting to see if they need help or more likely making sure they don't nick anything .

Now, if they're going to make someone stand over a self serve till they may as well put them behind the till so that the customers have someone to talk to as they're putting through their shopping .

Always found that strange .

Always wonder how much supermarkets lose a year through shoplifting at those self service tolls?

People being amazed and not having their card or cash ready for when they get on the train/bus or purchase things in shops, like as if shops normally do a take what you want for free policy.
