The story is widely spread on British websites and increasingly on foreign portals as well, as a Yorkshire woman collapses in front of her three children at the pace dictated by the cashier.
Nicola Fuller told a local newspaper called Teesside Live that he vainly asked the store clerk to slow down, so the contents of the supermarket swept the counter first and then spread nonstop at his feet. “I started shivering and crying. I knelt there on the floor, trying to catch the falling food while also trying to pay attention to my children.” The cashier even scolded him for being too slow. The woman who had been shopping at the store 10 years ago is now afraid to go back.
In response to the dramatic story, Aldi issued a statement or personally apologized to its customers. They emphasized that cashiers are aware of the need to slow down and monitor the pace of on-demand shoppers.
But this ordinary story can still get too big because it frustrates so many people that they can’t keep up with the code reader. There are also different practices circulating about how to cheat the system: someone pushes products apart on an assembly line, while a friend swears at different pastries placed in a bag.
