5020 1600

Jun 28th, 2007

I stopped working at Alldays over five years ago now and yet I still remember the barcode for a Creme Egg. Its probably some secret code amongst past cashiers, see who has served their time behind the till of a convenience store.

  1. LOL! I just got a Creme Egg from a colleague and was talking about how I could still remember the bar code from about 12 years ago! I then decided to put it into Google, and your blog is the first to come up! I think I’m going to start a group on Facebook.


  2. lol, thought i forgot it after talking to my girlfriend so i Google’d it to find out and low and behold this poped up. and it is so true, 5020 1600 the number you remember because the god damn eggs never scan lol.

  3. I feel your pain, 31 years old and still haunted by 3 years of these things never scanning in my late teens.

    At least there’s a place for people like us……

  4. Haha I had to learn this because there’s only so much messing around with the foil a human can take before their sanity is completely lost. Good old 5020 1600.

  5. Yup same here I always amaze people over the counter when I buy one and it does not scan…..they go excuse me, I go 5020 1600 again…..the Barcode…. I say for the egg…. then they smile and I explain I worked in Tesco’s when I was 18 15 years ago!
