    Dear xmas shoppers,

    When walking through the main walkways of the shop at xmas time please keep walking at a steady pace.

    If you want to browse, look at your phone, look at shop windows then PLEASE move yourselves to the side of the walkways and not just stop SNAP BANG in the middle of the walkway with tons of people behind you trying to walk because I am afraid I will have no choice but to ram into you with my trolley or pram You wouldn't slam your brakes on in your car in the middle of the freeway would you ? so don't do it in the shops.

    Thanks.

    Merry Christmas, I hope you all still have your jobs next year when customers decide that online shopping and Australia post queues are infinitely better than your 'service'

    Sorry but have to say ..but I totally can understand how annoyed the staff must get..especially when the comment of "geez you guys are busy"..I hear women saying this to them..and think ....are you mad?..
    It is very rude for us as shoppers to expect that there would be no lines...and no waiting for service at this awfully crazy time of year..we have to learn to shop smarter!!.
    But even then they should still try to give service with a smile..maybe if we all smiled and took a deep breath it would help...

    Anyone that leaves their Christmas shopping till December deserves to have queues and inconvenience imo. Christmas is the same time every year - get yourself organised and get it done in advance.
