I was interested to see that my local Lidl is encouraging customers to use cards not cash to cut down on handling money.

Well, my OCD well and truely kicked in the other day when I was doing my shopping....I actually considered buying it in several small lots, so I could pay 'sans contact' each time and avoid having to touch the buttons on the card machine! :oops: :roll: :lol:

She's young and, therefore, immortal.
Actually she's 50 and a cancer patient. But, for some reason, doesn't respect my opinion on any medical issue. It's a problem.
That’s why you love it here, we lap up all your opinions and advice.
Hah! If only that were true. :lol:

Our font of medical knowledge is invaluable in the current situation.

When he shared his CV if he had included that he lived in Tours and was the world authority on transport, logistiques & French house renovation would you value his knowledge quite as much?

But he was also a jet fighter pilot and captain of the Titanic.

Well we know those things are true and you forgot the bits about classic SAABs and childcare. JSKS could have made his CV up.

What bothered me today in Sainsbury was that the checkout staff were not wearing latex gloves. I mentioned it at the customer service desk and they looked taken aback.

I don't know about you but if I was handling goods and money all day I know I'd want at least some PPE.

We're still in the playing at it phase.

In fact OH and I were the only ones wearing gloves.
I agree. I wear latex gloves when shopping and I even take a plastic bag to put my card into after paying in case the card machine is infected. I then wash my card in soap and water before putting it back in my wallet. Is that OCD?

No. I must say that all I did with my card was stick it back in the wallet because I won't be using it fir several dates and the virus should due off if there's any on it.

I've discovered that if you pay using sans contact two times in a row, or perhaps three, the next time the sans contact will be refused, in case the card's been stolen, and you have to use the machine and enter the code; seems reasonable to me.
