Dear the Chief Executive of Jet petrol stations,
Re: Mashed Potato in Rayleigh
I recently visited the Jet petrol station in Rayleigh in order to buy a packet of mashed potato. Upon taking it to the checkout the cashier was unable to scan the item and the scanning device made a negative-sounding ‘beep’. Unfortunately, as your petrol stations do not show the prices of the majority of items on the shelves the cashier had no idea of the price of a packet of mashed potato, and so was forced to give me the packet for free.
I would be very happy to pay for the mashed potato. Please do send me an invoice.
In the meantime I would suggest that you start displaying prices for the items on the shelves, not least because people quite like to know how much things cost before they buy them.
I will be writing about this on my personal weblog, but will try not to draw undue attention to the fact that mashed potato is available for free from your Rayleigh petrol station.
