Sainsbury's - Some staff and customers are a bit snobish for my liking.

Music Zone - One of there staff made a bitchy comment about my taste in music, advised him that I was there to make a purchase not for his opinion. I believe they have gone under.

Having to sit down, waiting for your special number to come up (like being in a bingo hall!).

It's so tedious!
reserve on the internet and all thats gone and pay by switch or cc at the card point and all thats gone

How utterly stuck up are all the people who are saying Asda is for 'chavs'? I suppose they all shop at Waitrose or Harrods Food Hall or some hoity toity place I like ASDA its affordable and the staff are friendly, oh and Im not a chav either.

Its not really shop, but I for one will never step foot in Burger King because the food taste like muck and the places are always dirty.

I also dislike Next. I find the clothes frumpy and middle aged. Same goes for Matalan.

I'd rather walk in, wearing my Sunday best, browse around for 10 minutes and then tell them I've only got 20 on me.

I hate going into designer clothes shops. The staff expect you to make a 100 purchase after about 10 seconds!

They are soooo snobby in there!

End of the day, they are nothing but a backstreet shop!

They may be a backstreet shop but they're a posh one!

T-shirt for 50, jumper for 100, socks for 20.

Have you ever noticed that all the seats have suspicious looking stains on them?

There is one computer game shop - think it is Game World - that I won't go in as it smells like a teenage boy's bedroom (and growing up with 2 brothers I know what that smell is like!).

I have just been into Lidl today and I hated it. Not a place I will be visiting again. The packaging on the food looks like its from the 1980's

I've never been to Lidl in the UK, been to the German Lidl stores and they do seem to sell a lot of crap.

Comet: not since I took them to court over a crap washing machine (I won the case).

KFC: can't stand the stuff.

Any old fashioned butchers shop: the smell make me gag.

Fishmongers: likewise (but not quite as bad as a butchers)

Yes!

I've also noticed that they look like playschool seats.

New Look Sorry I know theres some fans on here - I just dont like the way which ever store you go into its always the same. Clothes in a muddle or on the floor, people standing in the way or prams blocking the passageways.
