Following on from yesterday's article about supermarket idiocy, I am gemused to read that yet another supermarket (this time the mantle of idiocy falls on Asda) has managed to cover itself in "glory".
Marisa Zoccolan, a chef, popped into her local Asda in Wallsend to buy some groceries including two limes.
She went to the self checkout to pay.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, she was forbidden from buying the two limes.
The acid contained within the two limes is deemed by Asda to constitute a potential weapon!
An "assistant" informed her that one lime was OK, because a single lime could not be used as a weapon.
Well, I would dispute that. I am sure an imaginative assailant could do an awful lot of damage to someone with but one citrus fruit!
Anyhoo, Asda "graciously" allowed her to buy two limes.
Asda blame a software glitch for this and other fruit related incidents.
