    I put this under 'Entertainment' because I never fail to be entertained (every single time!) by the sales staff's expressions when I politely refuse their request for my postcode!

    I simply say to them, "That's OK, it's just a cash sale." Even after stating this, some have persisted and said that it's "only in case you need to claim a refund" or it's "just for the invoice." A refund or invoice for a bottle of wood glue or a box of screws???

    I'm never asked for my postcode whenever I buy a Snickers bar in the supermarket! GDPR, folks.

    I always give the wrong postcodes. I have this funny thing about memorizing postcodes which seem weird to me (cant give an eg coz it will give my location away). I just give ti as a matter of factly instaed of having to argue a point, Has worked for me so far.

    I decided to give in and enlist at Screwfix. It came in handy one time when my air ratchet went faulty and I had lost the paper receipt. But I agree most times (Mountain Warehouse are similar) I politely refuse.
