Morrisons Are Prats
My correspondent went to his local Morrisons in Crewe for a spot of shopping with his 13 year old daughter.
To buy some ingredients for her cookery class at school.
Unfortunately my correspondent made one "silly mistake".
He had the temerity to go to the real ale section of the store as well, and buy 4 cans for £5.50.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, on attempting to pay for the purchases my correspondent was asked by the checkout guy to produce id for him and his daughter. Given that an id for his daughter would show that she was under 18, even though the beer was being purchased only for himself, the purchase was refused.
I am given to understand that the manger of the store was told, in no uncertain terms, that the store would never be visited again.
Quite right too!
Sainsbury's of Nantwich had no such qualms about serving the beer to my loyal reader, even though his daughter was in his presence.
Is it me, or are many supermarkets getting way above themselves and behaving like a right bunch of self righteous, interfering, Nannying bastards?
Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.

Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store.
