    hahahaha that reminds me of one incident at work, when a melon came off the shelf and narrowly missed this customer.. she had a good laugh about it; but if a cutomer dislodges it then it can't be the shops fault surely?

    Thats what I thought, but I think she's doing it on the grounds that it was up on a high shelf :shrug:

    Its not the shops fault though :wacko: is a customer moves items then an item falls onto somebody else, how can you hold the shop responsible? not like it was how they did it and i want to no how it hit her in the head so hard to knock her to the floor? i mean in my tescos the fruit shelfs are not high. i think shes milking it a bit t i read a story about this "she staggered to the floor" i thought you fell to the floor or staggered home drunk lol its been over a year since it happened and if i had really been hurt while shopping and it was the shops fault id want a bit more than just a couple of £1,000 if she is really suffering with all these problems since it happend


    EDIT:

    In the bold part she says it was another customer that was to blame really but then in the next bold bit says its tesco's fault :wacko:

    hehehe that is kinda funny - but seriously how can she sue a company for an accident caused by another customer?? It's crazy that any lawyer would take her seriously.

    To be honest sticking heavy pineapples on a top slanted shelf isn't exactly a genius idea is it? Look at the bottom veg shelves they have the simple things like tomatoes roll off so dispite the other customer reaching for them they did because thats where they were put. The fact she fell to the ground - an old lady ...shows it wasn't safe alone. Poor woman but there is a little chuckle to the story. Having felt ripped off by Tesco so many times I can't say Im sorry for them :lol:

    Well TBH I worked in a grocery store and it seems shit stupid to put pineapples up on a high shelf, usually cans, jars would be closer to the ground and the lighter boxes were on top shelves for reasons like this :shrug:

    So even if the other customer dropped it/caused it to fall, it shouldn't have been up there in the first place :) I think she definitely has a case..

    Yeah I work there, you wouldn't believe the number of people who have freaked out over the years because they have health problems and get Coke over Diet Coke, like diabetics, etc. Makes sense but it's usually an honest mistake over carelessness, like I take 2 drinks the same colour- one Diet, one Coke, off the drink station and forget which is which and the Coke customer ends up with Diet and the Diet ends up with Coke.. it's an easy fix though you know after one sip you can come back and get it switched :shrug:

    at the end of the day something happened that shouldn't have happened and she's still suffering in pain now. There are some neurological conditions that are very severe and quite serious, that start with a minor injury.
