Free pizza for life coming her way so she doesn't reveal any more of your secrets
Twitter user Sinead Sarah said she saw the Domino's worker in his uniform at the checkout with what appeared to be around 15 bags of the potato snacks.
She shared an image on Twitter yesterday with the caption: "Thank you @dominos – next time I spend £3.49 on [a] tiny portion of potato wedges I'll remember they're from Asda!!!"
Her post has already been retweeted and liked thousands of times.
Rebecca Anderson commented: "I feel so betrayed"

In 2014, Domino's were criticised when a staff member was seen buying 59p wedges from Aldi.
The worker, from a store in Linlithgow, West Lothian, was spotted at the local Aldi branch by a regular Domino's customer.
Staff initially claimed the wedges had been for personal use, however bosses later admitted that they had run out of stock due to high demand during the World Cup and Wimbledon.
