    I was told that one of our District Explorer Units were in our local M&S today. I don't know for sure as I've been in Tesco all day

    If only they were all like that then perhaps I wouldn't detest it quite so much. Apart from getting in the way it is very intrusive.

    We had to suffer the dreaded bag packers in Tesco this morning. Seemed to be a rugby club so not only was there a bloke standing in the way, but he was a very big bloke who didn't move an inch. Oh and just to make it worse he'd prepared about twenty plastic bags right where we needed to do our packing.

    I instruct ours that they ask if people would like their bag packed. If they say no, they say "Thank You" regardless, and step back and wait for the next customer. It has been said that I am too regimented when we do this, but having lost one bag packing venue due to the disorderly behaviour of another Troop, I always make sure that ours are on their best behaviour.
