I am one of those who tries to have faith that supermarkets woldnt rip us off. But sadlyhave kena many times because when they pack the fruits, the bruised or spoiled sides are hidden inside. So unless they have a clear policy on how to pack and remove those , their employees would do as they think right. I dont have very much faith in those big chains and nowadays would prefer to buy loose. I dont poke but just hold it up to check for bruises.

Dun know about it, I only poke chicken to see whether it is still alive And I truly poke the chicken to see if it is really cooked. :heheheh:

Other than that, I use my sight to take a look at discolored chicken or simply to smell and detect for freshness for dressed chicken sold at Pestco or Myding. me Tonto , dun have to use rubber where my hands would be soiled ;)

Smile, you are Kamera! :) You didnt read the link , meh?

Tesco hypermarket spokesman said they had zero-tolerance for bad customer behaviour who poke poke poke.

They have taken many initiatives to curb unlawful behaviour, such as having security guards patrolling regularly, improved CCTV surveillance, warning signs and holding theft awareness programmes among our front-line staff members.

You dun wanna to be caught with the pants down with camera everywhere with the picture of soiled fingers! :eek:

It is justified behavior simply because everyone does it?

My ex-boss at Coca-Cola Singapore, a senior VP summore, always take two of the huge seedless grapes in Cold Storage in Centrepoint Singapore whenever we were there for market inspection. And no one dared to tell him off because of who he was and the fact he was Mat Salleh... disgusting behavior!

On the other hand, who wanna to bet with me that the pre packing from carrots to tomatoes in Pestco are underweight by the margin of 9 to 1? But these ones you dun poke, but weight it before you put it in the trolley.:rolleyes:
So who poke who?:confused:
Yand biasa timbang rasa sebelum beli.;)
