Dear oh dear what a Nanny nation we have become!
I refer you all to the recent case of Charlotte Howard (11 years old), who went to a 99p Store in Sudbury to buy a pack of coloured pencils.
Sadly for Charlotte the "till operative" refused to sell them to her.
They contained a pencil sharpener!
Nanny regards pencil sharpeners as "dangerous".
The situation became even more ludicrous when Charlotte's mum went back to the store with her, and tried to buy them herself.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, the "till operative" refused to sell them to her in case she then gave them to her daughter!
The 99p Store chain's commercial director Hussein Lalani told the Daily Mail that he was "proud that our processes restricting the sale of certain items to under-18s have been proved to work".
Errmm..is this man living on planet earth?
By the way, surely a sharp pencil is just as dangerous as a pencil sharpener?
