And Then, Have You Got One….

Does this drive you nuts at check-outs? Assuming you haven’t got one, “Have you got a Nectar card?”
If you have one I’m guessing it’s somehow cool. However, if you, like me, haven’t and it does drive you nuts and you like observing rapid changes in check-out operatives facial expressions, try this answer, delivered with a straight face, “No, but I’ve got a sister who’s a gunner in the navy.” Trust me, it never fails to get some truly amazing responses. Right up there with the lost and confused expressions elicited
, after purchasing items such as dishcloths and cleaning liquid, when enquiring if they have a gift wrapping service as the items are a late anniversary present.

Inherited from my mother (Stepney, 1930s), "No ... but I've got a bag that used to have cakes in". I still use it today.

I have a Nectar card but they are a pain really. I'd rather have slightly lower prices because you don't save much with them.

".....a bag that used to have cakes in". Thank you. Now added to my repertoire!

Many, many years ago, and possibly even longer ago than that, at the very dawn of the techno age, I read an article detailing the amazingly scary amount of information Tesco were able to glean from customers who used their store card and since that time have avoided all cards of a similar ilk like the plague.
