Somerfield workers show the bosses what they think of them.
It could be that the BBC was having a slow news day, but this item is still a gem. "I declare the underground YouTube Somerfield competition open to all Somerfield staff", claimed one wag who then proceeded to start the ball rolling by uploading his video offering. Now it seems as if the staff at every Somerfields' branch want to get in on the act by ridiculing the company. The Exile's favourite is this spoof advert, but there are lots more to watch and chortle over.
Good on you, Somerfield workers. Finding ways to amuse yourselves, getting paid for it - and giving the rest of us a laugh at your bosses' expense. We may not be in a position to take on the enemy directly, at least for the time being, but sarcasm, ridicule and contempt sure makes up for some of our failings.
