    Sorry… but we have a word for someone who supplies an enemy with vehicles and weapons… I hope GM, Ford and IBM thought that their collaboration with the Nazis was worth it… Thank you ??? You deserve to be shot…

    The USA (Nazi Collaborators), didn’t join WW2 until two years after war was declared… and only because Japan attacked Pearl Harbour and Hitler declared war on the USA… The USA were too cowardly to join when it mattered… They waited until it was obvious which side was winning… and came skipping across the pond… Johnny Come Lately

    GM was an integral part of the German war effort. The Nazis could have invaded Poland and Russia without Switzerland. They could not have done so without GM."

    The only reason we might have been talking German… is because The USA (Nazi Collaborators), supplied the vehicles Germany used to invade Eastern Europe… Thank goodness for the Commonwealth… and Britain’s success during the battle of Britain… because the USA was a waste of space… Too little – too late…

    Thank you to Canada, the Gurkhas, Australia, India, New Zealand… The USA (Nazi Collaborators) can kiss my butt…

    Crossing the street is a gamble… I suppose the ultimate loss for crossing the street is getting hit by a LT double-decker bus… Getting caught with an un-scanned bottle of Glenfiddich, could result in a prison visit…

    I suppose I’m not much of a gambler because neither event would tempt me…

    Yes and yes… You have a dustbin symbol (just like the one to the right of your comments, here on GC) on the screen of your hand-held scanner. You click on the dustbin and it will ask you to scan the item you want to delete.

    You can pay with vouchers, accrued store credit, debit card, credit card, contactless card, telephone or cash… If there’s a hiccough, there are helpers/assistants readily available to assist.

    Additional advantages, it tells you exactly how much you’ve spent, a detailed description and price of each item, suggests other associated purchases and discounted associated items (very discreetly). It even has a clock…
