My local 3yr old supermarket multimillionaire pound international chain.

Upon being dragged round the weekly shopping trip noticed every shelving unit is bonded using 6mm single core and a nice big do not remove earth connection sticker.

I noticed this fairly into our up and down shopping route and going round the full massive shop getting the goodies only noticed working appliances was the makeup isle had cctc (be selv) and in the fruit veg isle had a free standing scales non fixed to the shelving.

I also kept getting into trouble for looking up at the lights, tray, screwed rod, basket, power distrabution and fire detection

Well there is no reg saying that extraneous conductive parts may not be earthed, but then whoever decided on this obviously had money to burn...
However supermarket profits are doing OK.

Really Jaymack,
I have reported you to have you banned.
I have no idea what your motives are, but they are seriously non professional!
My addresses are clearly shown on several page of my website, is registered with companies house (Zawadi Ltd) and is entirely legit, with many many satisfied customers, from broadcasters to the public.
What are you at now, because you are B****y rude!
So what is you name, address, company registration, VAT status, and the rest?
I think we deserve an answer.

Sadly me too... when I used to drop my daughter or ex girlfriend off at Thiefrow I went into a different dimension and was caught, several times, by a waiving daughter of ex girlfriend as I was intrigued by what was going on in the void where a sparks was doing something... I would have asked the sparks what they were up to but I pretty much guessed that they wouldn't speak English so I didnt bother!

In Sainsburys, north Cheam, Surrey, I am always amazed when I walk through the side alleyway to north Cheam via Sainsbury's car park, because as you walk along the winding pathway and look down to the left where the lampposts are buried... you can see all of the SWA's just lying there on the surface wiggling around the foliage... now I know from previous posts that this is supposed to be ok as they are visible but everytime I see them just lying there makes me smile... I am also amazed why they haven't been stolen yet as Sutton's drain covers have been so Sutton council replace these with plastic ones... haha!

Nope, I don't advertise my URL on that site, just the moniker and the location! Advertise on this forum?, it would be like trying to sell freezers to the Eskimos.
