  1. Went to Tesco at Spital Hill today and went through the usual queuing system, trolley etc, and I noticed the security guard separate two Roma women, saying only one could go in at a time. I have been in there with my partner, and my partner has been in with her adult daughter, without any hindrance. When I got inside, I asked the security guy inside (different one) if the rules had changed, not telling him which rules or why, just to see what he would say. He confirmed that the rules had changed as of yesterday, that Tesco head office had decided that only one person can shop at a time from any family or household, nor can two friends shop together. As the lockdown seems to have been eased recently, ie I am now working again with a colleague and not on my own, using 2 metres social distancing etc, and more trains are running, why has Tesco suddenly INCREASED their lockdown rules? When I was in store, I noticed a young couple, trolley each doing everything they should, not endangering anyone; and a security guard went over and asked them to leave! Also, there were at least two of these security guards walking round checking people weren't together and speaking to each other via walkie talkie as in a football stadium or night club. Trust me it was very intimidating. Also I noticed Tesco staff themselves congregating within kissing distance of one another, two, three even four at a time. This is not unique, it goes on ALL the time. I have mentioned the latter situation before to their managers, and was simply rebuffed. Now before this comes across as telling tales, it is not as simple as that. I really, really cannot understand why they are making customers feel so frightened of breaking these rules, when their own staff are blatantly flouting them. My partner's adult daughter cannot shop alone, she has cerebral palsy although this is not obvious to see, but she cannot use both hands properly, and has anxiety and panic attacks when challenged. My partner takes her shopping once a fortnight, as her daughter has a baby and likes to get her own shopping, but now they are too frightened to go to this particular store. Is this rule for all Tescos, or just this particular branch? I have noticed that Morrisons at Catcliffe are not as bad even though they stick to government guidelines regarding social distancing, shopping there is a safe and more pleasant experience. Any Tesco workers please feel free to enlighten us. Mart.
  2. I think parking over someone's driveway is not on, and blocking them in is really not on. But to not allow someone to park on the road outside your house by putting up obstructions is almost as bad. If I had a drive way and someone blocked me in for any ridiculous length of time I think I'd just push the car away from the drive way. may need a few big lads to help though!
  3. That's because De Niro actually adopted Duvall as a kid, he was like a father to him. Duvall became De Niro's lawyer later in life, and De Niro became Brando as he got older...
  4. Has anyone tried paring on Glencoe Road recently? Due to builders' vans working on Park Hill flats, it has become a nightmare. Residents have taken to putting wheelie bins and traffic cones outside their houses to stop people parking ( I presume the builders) This means that anyone catching a train, visiting the local chemist or even friends, cannot park. I understand the frustration of the residents, but this has a knock on effect. What are the legalities to moving the cones/wheelie bins even planks, and just parking up? There are no yellow lines.
  5. Very sad if it's closed, used to have some good evenings in there.
  6. Is the Royal Standard closed? Went out Saturday night in the hope of catching a bit of live music only to find the place in darkness.
  7. Stretford.. Before that, newton Heath. Anyway, neither United won. Fair result I believe.
  8. I'm sure you did want United to win. But as they are both called United, you wouldn't want it any other way... To be honest, I must be one of the few who's two fave teams are Manchester United and Sheffield United, in that order, so the result didn't hurt me and I'm glad that both teams showed a hard fight back spirit to the rest of the premiership. But it is concerning that Manchester United took so long to wake up
  9. Exactly my point, low quality celebs have killed it. Rylan, Zoe Ball. Vanessa. It's a shame, as I used to like listening to real music. The folk hour (once a week!) has even been moved to a later slot!
  10. Is it me or has radio 2 gone seriously downhill? It seems to be becoming a very dodgy version of radio1, modern manufactured rubbish, or rap type stuff more suited for teenagers, or adults who want the street cred of their teenage kids. Half the presenters are bland, not like the days of Wogan or Evans etc. Anyone still listen to this dirge? I have it on in my car as it is probably the best signal I can get on trans Pennine drives. We still have Ken Bruce and Jeremy Vine so all not lost, and O'Grady is decent, so there's hope.. just!
  11. How much is too much? Hundreds of pounds may be considered as too much if you want to rescue an abandoned pet, but if I were selling/gifting a dog I would want to be sure the new owner was serious, so if they balk at the idea of parting with a small fee, then I would worry that they would also struggle to care for an animal. Also, these fees can go towards the upkeep of the the dogs rescue centre, so money well spent.
  12. Dropping bombs on populations is atrocious; end of.
  13. Have any of you tried the folk sessions in Fagans in Sheffield? Different nights a wealth of talent go in there.
