“I got to the till and could sense there was an uncomfortable atmosphere then the man behind the till started shouting ‘no pets allowed’,” she told the BBC.
“I said ‘it’s a guide dog and I’m registered blind’, but his two other cashiers joined in the shouting match.
“Everyone in the queue kept saying ‘she’s allowed to have a dog’ but they (cashiers) were just completely adamant that dogs were not allowed in the store.”Cashiers of no appearance?
Tesco stressed guide dogs are allowed in stores.
A spokesman said: “This clearly should never have happened and we will contact Ms Makri directly to apologise.
“We do allow guide dogs in stores and have reminded colleagues of that.”Let’s hope the reminder is in the same envelope as their P45s…
And you know what else is odd? The Twitter account @EverydayAbleism hasn't uttered one peep about this. But I guess being thrown out of a shop pales beyond the awful horrors of Christmas cards:
Or too-large chairs:
Suck it up, Ms Makri. You think you got problems?
Maybe Tesco should remind all employees of no appearance that if they let their religion get in the way of doing their job then they can collect their P45 on the way out.
I wonder just how much there employees of no appearance are at the root of the falling sales problem? People could be quietly voting with their feet.
All employees of no particular appearance believe that angels will not enter a house with a dog or picture in it. According to their model in all things. That's crazy on so many levels, their employment opportunities should be limited to tribal villages in remote places.
How about the Life in the UK test include petting an amiable golden retriever for fifteen minutes? Dogs are part of OUR culture.

I was thinking along the lines of 'A Sunday in Britain Experience' for all immigrants - nice full English breakfast, followed by the Sunday service, then a nice roast pork sunday lunch, followed brisk walk in the countryside with the dogs, ending up at a nice country pub for pint or two.
What could be more inviting for new members of our society?
"petting an amiable golden retriever"
We'd know they'd passed by the liberal coating of golden hairs they acquired during the process.

An American pit bull would be even more entertaining.
As someone has noted that is why Tesco's profits are falling, sod them they can go out of business for all I care. If an 'asian' employee did that in the Emirates or the Gulf States where I am currently working they would be sacked and their feet would not hit the ground until they were back on a plane to the part of 'Asia' they originally came from.
In my local Sainsbury is a hijab wearing young girl. Very pleasant and has no probs beeping any pork and alcohol products through. How come? Maybe it is something to do with greater numbers elsewhere and the desire to impose.
"People could be quietly voting with their feet."
It's possible. I use my nearest Tesco rarely, preferring one further away. That's entirely down to demographics of shop & customers.

A good question,
