A Nation of Brain Dead Numpties
As I have often stated on this site, living in the Nanny state (where everything is spoon fed to you, people are obliged to follow petty rules and procedures and we are discouraged from thinking for themselves) rots the brain.
Hey ho...and here we have proof, if it were ever needed, that the Nanny state really does rot the brain.
Jaz Bhogal, 15, found this to his cost the other day when he went to his local 99p store at Wisbech Cambridgeshire to buy some wine gums.
Can you guess what happened next loyal readers?
Yes, that's right, the shop assistant refused to sell them to him because Jaz was under 18.
Factoid: wine gums do not contain alcohol.
A cursory glance at the list of ingredients of said packet could have verified that, not to mention the fact that most people with half a brain know that.
However, living in the Nanny state rots the brain and the fact that the word "wine" was in the label ensured that an automatic "you're underage" mindset kicked in.
Not surprisingly the store owners have realised that they look like numpties and have apologised. Seemingly there was a "glitch" in the electronic till which flagged the product as "booze".
So that's alright then?
No it's not, because commonsense should have told the shop assistant that the till was wrong!
As noted, we have become a nation of brain dead numpties thanks to Nanny.
