      Just been into my local Lidl's which I don't go into too often to pick up some chicken and some cat biscuits as I had ran out and I do not do my shop until next week and as I walked in the security guard in there goes to me "This is getting a regular occurance" me looking amazed told him that yes I sometimes come in to pick up things I need because I do my shopping every few weeks, why I do not know as I don't see why I should have to explain myself to him when because he happened to see me twice as I picked my kids up from school and nipped in to get what I needed. Anyway I have only been in two times this week once was yesterday to pick up bread buns for tea and today for what I stated above and I was made to feel like I shouldn't be in there.

      Anyone else ever had this or something similar happen to them?

      :giggle: I hope not. He did seem a right moody one today that is for sure, I guess he really didn't want to work on a Friday.

      Anyone would have thought I was going in there to steal something the way he spoke :/

      No, I don't pay attention to those people. They probably just trying to scare you.

      Put it this way if he was trying to scare me he would have to look a little but more scarier and bigger than he did, he is short, has some weight on him and has bleached blonde hair :/ just not very frightening.

      I guess I'd have to be there to judge better. It sounds to me like he was just being friendly? In the US, it's considered polite for a store employee to see you regular to sort of treat you like a "regular." If he had a bite to his voice, then I guess my interpretation would be wrong. Either way I wouldn't think much of it. As long as you're not doing anything wrong, there's nothing to worry about.

      His tone of voice did seem a bit off to me to be honest, the way I felt when he said it and I walked off was as though I shouldn't have been there again a day after the last time I was in there or as though I was someone who was going to steal :/ not my thing to be honest.

      I was tempted to say something yesterday but didn't because

      1. Had the kids with me
      2. Really needed the things I went into for so didn't fancy getting kicked out :giggle:
