    I hate my superpower which involves becoming enamoured with a certain product, then the supermarket promptly deciding not to stock the item any longer.

    My other superpower is that whatever I am shopping for is always going to be located behind a dirty great pallet that the fillers are using.

    Being in the country, I see at least three students/former students every time, so I have to fill my trolley with like lettuce and healthy foods just so I can buy a damn family block of chocolate without feeling embarrassed.

    For the love of God - can I just buy normal milk?

    So many cranky shoppers! I agree with lots of the PPs. I am a cranky shopper too ☺

    I have been irritated by this too. Not those items, but other ones. I wrote to Woolies about it - to ask, and because i thought they'd like the feedback. I got a very unsatisfactory nothing-y response! More cranky!

    I am convinced my local Woolies doesn't even do night fill any more. They are doing restocking of shelves from about 6-10am. Boxes and pallets everywhere, annoying the bajinkers out of me.

    I'm sure fancy Coles near me doesn't do night fill anymore either. Their aisles seem to be filled with people stacking shelves between 5pm-7pm nightly. It's painful

    Woolies has cut a lot of staff. I work front end and we've recently had a huge staff cut, and we don't even have self serves!

    I don't understand this! I'm all for efficiency, however it's not like Coles and woolworths are losing money! They make plenty of it. But profits over the wellbeing of their staff ****s me to tears

    I'm super lucky that my local Coles is a brand new one and was built as a flagship store for how it 'should' be - nice wide aisles, door greeter, huge self-serve area, and lots of open checkouts. There are never more than 2 people lined up. I LOVE it, and even though it's more exxy than the local Woolies I still shop there.

    But I do still have a pet hate there though - when you're trying to get out of a busy aisle and someone wants to get in, so they just barge in and cause a traffic jam! Do they not realise that if they just let me out first there would be room for them to get into the aisle easily!?!?

    Apparently Woolies as a group is losing money - eg Masters, so i think that is why they are cutting staff. I'm with you about prioritising profits over staff wellbeing - and customer satisfaction too it seems!

    Never realised this was annoying to other people!
    We also do our shopping at the weekend. I finish work at 6/7PM and there isn't a shop on the way home (Also i use public transport).
    The weekends are quieter for shopping here though.
