Popped into Lidl yesterday, they've definitely made improvements to the shelving and stocking of items, the layout is more Brit supermarket now and all the bread rolls and stuff have new compartments set higher up with a kind of lid instead of just an open wicker basket slanted downwards. But it still felt like I was visiting Lithuania or somewhere with all the foreign accents around me. But have to say they have the best and cheapest bread rolls and doughnuts of all.
Anyway, got to the self service queue because no service tills were open then the tannoy announced checkout two now open. Almost everyone quickly switched to that till but the cashier didn't turn up for nearly ten minutes and the queue was nearly to the back of the shop. I said quite loudly every ironic German efficiency comment I could think of, but I didn't get a murmur of response or a smile from the Europeans next to me, even though some were speaking English to their kids. Proof that lot just don't have a sense of humour. The sooner we Brexit the better.
