Just in Sainsbo's doing my weekly shop - a day off and its raining yet again - and over the tannoy comes this announcement "Can Sharon Stone please come to Customer Services"!

Sorry to disappoint you but Sharon Stone is a rather dim and unattractive shelf-stacker on work experience. On the other hand, when I was in Tesco on Old Kent Road recently there was an announcement "Would Harvey Keitel, film actor and screen legend, who has taken some time to join us in the roll of a humble in-store janitor to research his latest film role, please go to aisle 7 where a child has vomited." And guess what.....

When I used to work in Boots we would make announcements like "Would Mike Hunt please return to the pharmacy." Which amused us a lot (well, I was 16).

>>Can Sharon Stone please come to Customer Services"!<<

Probably in-store code for "the knickers shelf needs restocking"? big grin

Once heard over the tannoy in ASDA - "Tess Cosis-Cheeper, Tess Cosis-Cheeper, please come to customer services!"

I did see Jeremy Bowen in there the other week. He looked rather dishevelled. Probably just back from Basra or something. Skiver!

I saw the lovely, but sad looking, JB in Pretty Traditional the other day - stocking up with UK fruit and veg.

I love him and was happy he went away with a (non-plastic) bag of fruity goodies.

And thesainsburyguy - spill the beans (metaphorically) - who? What a tease!

Yesterday the tanoy asked for 'Carl Lewis to the check out please'.

She didn't have to ask a second time.

Don't know if this is the case here but many years ago I used to work in a supermarket and we had codes for all sorts of things. Things like security to checkout X or if someone was trying to do a runner a particular call to alert certain staff.

In Disney stores, I think 'customer' means 'shoplifter'. I forget what they called actual customers though... All the staff are cast too.

When working in government offices above a large shopping centre in Belfast we soon learnt that the announcement "Plumbers to the basement, please" meant there was a suspect device somewhere in the building. You may imagine my dismay when I heard this announcement being made whilst sitting on the loo, midway through a lengthy commune with nature!

"Inspector Sams" is the code on the underground.

messageRe: Famous People in Sainsburys
Posted by Michael Palaeologus 04 October, 2007 15:32

and indeed in all public areas - I used to hear it when working in Twickenham Stadium during the security tests.

messageRe: Famous People in Sainsburys
Posted by Domitianus 04 October, 2007 15:43

What happens if there really is an Inspector Sams (perhaps a police officer of same rank, or someone who work for the Inland Revenue) and he or she gets fed up with going up and down to the basement for no apparent reason? Surely this is somewhat ill-conceived as a policy? Why not just come out with it "There is a bomb in the building. Run like f**k!"

'Inspector Sands' I think - fire alarm activated in the station. There is a different one for suspected bomb alerts which is even more innocuous (and doesn't come up on a quick google).

As far as I can make out Asset is that Inspector Sams is a plumber on the underground. He also has something to do with the fire alarm.

now you're just confusing me Brendan.

I go to that Sainsbury's all the time and I've never seen anyone famous (apart from La Eclair once).

I've seen two celebs in Sainsbury's so far - that lady from Emmerdale with dark hair and a squeaky voice (sorry, don't watch it). I also saw Erin O'Connor, the striking tall model from the Marks and Spensive ads.

Incidentally, I am new to this site, what does 'prepare to be lounged' mean?
