Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Thinking about this further, if someone tests positive, informs the pub and then they get in touch with everyone who went that day... what then? Does everyone who went that day have to self isolate for 2 weeks? The place I gave my contact details to don't have a record of when I left so how do they...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

One of the best things to come out of all of this is the fact IKEA now let you take your trolley load of stuff across the car park, freeing you from the penned in pick-up area. Much easier if you're shopping solo. That said, I went in an hour before closing and it still felt a bit crowded in some pa...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The C4 programme stuck in my mind too. Store managers were crying out to head office for homewares and toiletries that were good sellers - but instead got sent random junk in their deliveries, including masses and masses of Pontefract cakes that were going out of date (seen as a 'good deal' by the b...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I thought the idea was for one person who has been isolated to join with one other small household? That's right - one single-person household can bubble with another household (of the normal number in that household). According to the Sunday Times, this policy came about from a single mum emailing...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Was watching this video from John Lewis and thinking how much POS will need to be updated if they do reduce the social distancing to 1 metre. Some signage people must be doing a decent trade right now. although I suppose all the usual work has dried up. Thinking of getting into the "sticky stuff rem...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Got a letter reminding me to book my car in for a service, and noticed that Volkswagen have updated their logo. A bit of research shows it changed last year , but this is the first time I've noticed. Anyway, looks a bit fresher now it's flat (quite boring though), but apparently this "works better a...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I think the Prime Minister's handling of the whole affair has been abysmal. A total inability to get to grips with the story early, and a string of inconsistencies emerging from statements to the press and Cabinet Ministers. Whatever your view on the matter, Sunday night's briefing by the PM looked ...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

My local Sainsbury's has been struggling to offer any eggs at all lately. Now the only ones available are an own-brand 12 pack of bright white-shelled eggs. They are wheeled into place on plastic pallets and the packaging is clear plastic as opposed to a normal cardboard egg box. Seems odd - is ever...

Tesco Pay+ has a higher limit (£250 I think) if that helps.
Thanks, but I don't go very often. However, their own payment app thing is probably the reason behind the £30 decision.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Very annoying that Tesco limit Google Pay and Apple Pay transactions to £30. It's the only place I've encountered a limit for mobile payments.

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

You can now sit on a bus without worrying about social distancing, if you want... on Zoom.

EDIT: Also, some from TfL.
