Queen discovers loophole in Sainsbury’s self-checkout system

"...and these are Sainsbury's everyday essential champaign flutes. One fiends them most reasonable."

“…and these are Sainsbury’s everyday essential champaign flutes. One fiends them most reasonable.”

In a private visit to Sainsbury’s automatic self-check-out store, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II discovered a flaw in the technology.

Staff were awed and floored by the Queen’s knowledge of self-checkout systems. IT experts immediately investigated to solve the problem.

The bug appeared at the point of payment when the Queen discovered users could ‘cheat the system’ by not putting all items through the checkout.

The publication of the Palace’s grocery bill for the past 12 months showed a 65% reduction from the previous year.

A Palace spokesperson said the Queen was very aware of the cost of food and had been running an economy drive for the past year.

This coincided with a drop in profits of the Windsor Sainsbury’s store which Sainsbury’s put down to ‘teething troubles’.
