Just Eat Takeaway

Once in a Tesco supermarket a customer asked me where an item of groceries was in a very rude way. I didn't know an even if I did wouldnt have told her anyways so she got angry at me so I told the customer where to go. Literally she got an "eff off an leave me alone". She got management involved and when the manager came over he verified I did not even work for him or for Tesco an that she was just being rude to another customer getting his lunch..,. ME!

    Increasing customer interest in fortified foods has prompted our business to uniquely start boosting fibre content in some of its most popular snacks. In a move to help customers increase their dietary fibre we have started to boost fibre to own label foods starting with pies, pasties, sausage rolls and chilled breads. It follows Government guidelines which recommended that the average daily intake of fibre needed to nearly double in order for Brits to lead a healthier lifestyle. Angela Hughes our Food Developer who has overseen the move, lost her beloved grandfather to bowel cancer and her father also has the disease. When Angela’s doctor said there was a strong chance of her also contracting the hereditary disease she asked colleagues if she could use her expertise to try and help others avoid the same fate.
