It would appear from this follow up comment, made by the contributor of the Asda teaspoon story, that Asda are not the only supermarket imposing an id rule for the purchase of teaspoons.
"I sent the original photo in. Asda can deny it all they like but they'd be lying if they did. I've seen the receipt & I still have the photo of it on my phone - it says 'teaspoons', 'ID required, 18', my wife has it in her possession. She is not a liar, neither am I.
In the spirit of mischief my wife went to Tesco today & tried to purchase 2 latte teaspoons (the long handled & therefore potentially lethal variety) using the self service checkout.
Sure enough an assistant was required & she was asked for proof of ID. You need to be over 18.
What kind of insanity is this? I urge everyone to go to their local supermarket & buy spoons - use the self service checkout to force an assistant to make you provide ID. Then refuse to provide it.
If they insist on this moronic rule, walk out & leave the stuff where it is: it's not yours until you've paid for it."
In the spirit of the above, I suggest that we conduct a series of tests, the length and breadth of the country, to id which supermarket chains and stores require id for the purchase of teaspoons.
Those that require an id should be named, shamed and boycotted.
