Oh dear our friends at Tesco have been up to their old tricks again. They seem to have a real bee in their bonnet about booze, and have adopted all of Nanny's worst habits and practices.
Claire Birchell (aged 25, ie over the age of 18) was making a bold attempt to buy a product from her Tesco store in Flitwick recently. However, she met with resistance from the Tesco "show me your papers" brigade who flatly refused to sell her the product without proof that she was over 18.
What was this dangerous product?
Ms Birchell was attempting to buy a bottle of barbecue sauce, the sauce was called Jack Daniel's sauce and contained a highly dangerous 2% of booze.
Needless to say the cashiers at Tesco couldn't allow an adult to buy such a dangerous product, unless they could prove that they were over 18. Heaven forfend that Ms Birchell (if she had been a minor) had the urge to rush home and down the bottle in one go!
The staff then pushed more salt into the open wound of their stupidity by refusing to sell it to Ms Birchell's brother-in-law, Philip Dover (a mere 27 years old) who was with her at the time and did have ID.
Why did they refuse to sell it to him?
Obvious isn't it?
They said he would just give it to her.
Are these people farking stupid, taking the piss or is this some cunning marketing plan that Tesco are trying out?
