Over the past few days I have twice visited SCREWFIX - a UK nationwide company which sells tools & fixings.
On my first visit, I informed the store assistant of the item I required. She immediately said, "POST-CODE?"
I informed her that it was a CASH SALE and there was no need to give information. "OK" she said, and then called out to a supervisor to key in a code number on the computer terminal in order to process my order. (WHY?)
Two days later I returned. Same girl. When I gave her the order, she said "NAME?"
I said, "It's a cash sale, I don't want to receive love-letters from Screwfix." She had to request the code number again!
If I buy a newspaper or a Snickers bar, I don't get asked for my name, address, & postcode.
Maybe next time I go into Screwfix I should just wear one of these -
