Prats of The Week - Sainsburys
This week it goes to our old chums at Sainsbury's, for yet again proving that Nanny has managed to remove any shreds of commonsense from a large section of the population.
Kirsty Breeze, 19, and Ian Jackson, 24, were in their local Sainsbury's in Stoke-on-Trent recently and wanted to buy a video for their son Leo who is 2.
The assistant at the shop refused to sell the video to them, unless they could prove they were over 25.
Was this a video nasty?
Was this a sex romp?
The video was of "Fireman Sam" (U certificate suitable for all ages).
After much kerfuffle, the hapless couple had to ask Miss Breeze's mum (who is 42) to buy the video on their behalf.
Now those of you with commonsense will no doubt be asking the following:
1 The video was for OK for children, why did Sainsbury's not sell it to the couple without the fuss?
2 Given that both of the couple were over the legal age of consent (for booze, sex etc) why does Sainsbury's insist on a 25 year age bar on "adult" products?
3 The video was obviously mismarked on the computer system as being "age restricted", why didn't the staff at Sainsbury's simply override the system?
The answer to all of the above is simple, Nanny has removed commonsense from many people's mindsets, and Sainsbury's evidently are happy to employ people without commonsense.
