IF there’s one thing Aldi is renowned for other than it’s cheap food, it’s the fear of that very fast checkout process.
In fact, it’s so speedy, some customers find themselves hit with a pang of anxiety as they approach those dreaded tills.

But Aldi employee Kelcey Atkinson, who is 19-years-old and from the UK, has revealed that it’s not just customers who find themselves getting worked up.
In a short video posted to TikTok, Kelcey shared a list of some of the regular questions she’s asked by shoppers on a daily basis.
She began: “Things I, an Aldi worker, hate hearing.”
The supermarket worker kicked off by noting that she’s forever being told to scan slower, and is regularly asked why the food is so cheap.

She went on to highlight some of the other annoying questions she receives, which include: “Have you got it round the back?” and “can I speak to your manager?”
Kelcey added that she hates when shoppers ask whether she gets discount and finds it frustrating when they question whether items will be back in stock.
And don’t even think about asking if something can be put aside for collection at a later date…
