Nanny Bans Sauce
We all like a bit of sauce, don't we missus?
I know I do..snut snut snut!
Therefore imagine my dismay when I read of the sad tale of Simon Hood (aged 27), who was recently planning to hold a barbecue in his garden.
Off he jolly well toddled to his local Tesco in Chineham, to buy a bottle of Jack Daniel's original Barbecue Sauce (containing a mere 1% of spirit).
A simple task I hear you ejaculate (can I say "ejaculate" before 9PM?).
Sadly no, for you see the Tesco was staffed by a jobsworth.
On presenting the bottle of sauce at the checkout, Mr Hood was asked to produce his id (note he was 27 years old, and therefore doesn't need to produce any id even if he were buying 100% surgical spirit).
Oddly enough Mr Hood had not brought with him any proof of age (why should he?), and the cashier refused to serve him.
Mr Hood sans sauce then complained to Tesco Customer Services, another jobsworth working there wrote back 4 days later:
"I can understand how annoying that must have been for you. I can only apologise for this happening.
However, we do have to ask for ID for any produce that contains alcohol, no matter the quantity of the alcohol in the product."
No supermarket "has to ask for id" if someone looks over 18.
This is complete bullshit!
