    Talking A funny thing happened in Tescos (Dundee) today.....

    I popped into Tescos in Dundee today while I was there. I wanted to pick up a bucket as I was going to wash my car for the Scottish meet tomorrow and my brother had just the one bucket, so wanted another one for the two bucket method.

    Quickly got it and was waiting along the wall/windows after the checkouts while my brother came to the checkout with his stuff. So I was stood there with bog standard grey bucket under my arm watching the world and people go past.

    All of a sudden I heard this "Drrrrrud" noise and felt the bucket vibrate. Turned round, as I had been facing the opposite way, and saw a little girl stood next to me with her Mum. Looked in the bucket and there was a couple of quid in loose change!!! Wondered then it clicked. I turned to the Mum and said I'm not collecting for anything and I'd just bought the bucket and was waiting for somebody!! She looked at me and initially went a bit red, but then laughed and said she'd just assumed somebody stood in Tescos with a bucket near the checkouts was collecting for folk for Christmas kinda thing. So, after giving them the money back I went on my way, chuckling as I went! lol

    A guy next to me had seen what had happened and was stood chuckling too. He joked that I should have stood around for longer and got a few quid! My brother arrived literally just as the girl had put the money in and he was on the floor laughing!

    Normally folk avoid these bucket shakers collecting money, but here was this woman 'giving' money when it wasn't even being asked for and, obviously, nothing even being displayed saying it was for a particular cause - which I thought was nice of her.

    FPMSL Good of you to give it back though Duncan, if someone threw money at me I would be tempted to keep it!
