Co-op Customer gets busted, then overcharged
A Co-op in Jersey has overcharged a customer in the most unusual way. Basically, what's happened is that a shopper was overcharged when buying some fruit and veg thanks to the sales assistant's breasts. A customer at the branch voiced her concerns after she was charged almost £2 for a pepper that should have cost 79p.
When a supervisor investigated, and the customer got all of her fruit and veg reweighed (sorry, this all sounds like puns now), it transpired that she'd been overcharged to the tune of nearly £5.
And it was the cashier's jugs - which had been resting on the scales as she was weighing the goods - which caused the problem. This means that loads of customers may have paid too much for their produce.
Jim Hopley, chief executive of Channel Islands Co-operative, presumably trying to keep a straight face, said that it was the result of a low-slung chair as opposed to a gigantic pair of whappers.
"We have now adjusted the chair. We also checked the till receipt to see if anyone else had been overcharged."
Good thing it wasn't Lolo Ferrari or it could have been thousands of pounds over the odds. And no, we're not suggesting that a dead actress from the adult entertainment industry should be propped up behind a till and made to work.
The assistant concerned is apparently "mortified" by the incident, he said, and is currently receiving support from the Co-op's HR department.
SUPPORT LIKE A GOOD BRA! Geddit?! Oh, piss off.
