Voice at Woolies’ tills a turn-off
IT IS annoying to stand in a Woolworths till queue and be forced to listen to the anonymous voice which, in addition to advising which till is available (which is acceptable), now asks us to have our Woolworths and MySchool cards available.
It doesn’t sound like much but, if the queue is long, one hears this message anything up to 10 times which is akin to brainwashing. I have asked a couple of till operators what they think and got negative responses every time. If I find it annoying to listen to this lot (and I don’t have a card as I don’t shop that much at Woolworths), then how utterly maddening must it be for the staff – particularly those manning the tills?
What were Woolworths management people thinking? If this kind of repetition was happening in a prison it would be called torture. All I can say is I find it a huge turn-off. Rose Chinery
