It never fails to amaze me how badly the French supermarkets treat their customers.
What amazes me even more is that people put up with it. (by people, i mean the French, as a foreigner it's not really my place to say is it)
Customer service has yet to be invented in French supermarkets and i must admit it is my biggest gripe about living here. I've left my shopping in Lidl in the past and walked out, because of the staff pushing past massive queues of customers and continuing to clean the floor rather than open another checkout.
Although, i went into Mr Bricolage in Auch today and was told which shop to go to (other than them) to get my paint in bigger tins and cheaper by an extremely helpful man. I have to say the staff in Mr Bricolage could teach the staff in the supermarkets a lot about customer care.
