Morrisons Cafe in Aldershot, used to late afternoon, mark down their cakes to ensure none left.
Not anymore. Now official edict, no cakes to be reduced until last hour.
Staff used their initiative, judged when to mark down the cakes. They shifted the cakes, no waste.
But it appears, initiative is not welcome in Morrisons.
An overpaid fool descended on the local Morrison store, threw a wobbly when he saw cakes reduced half an hour before the official sanctioned mark down time.
Now one would think, this overpaid fool would have better things to occupy his mind, like service, strategy, that the food served in this cafe is often disgusting, but no, cakes reduced half an hour too early. He should have been praising the staff for showing initiative, not criticising.
For the sake of making the price, Morrisons would rather see food waste than stock cleared.
