Nanny Bans Booze Purchase - "Dissatisfactory" Tesco!

Nanny has again managed to muddle herself up over her age limits on booze buying.

Nanny's chums from Tesco in Saxmunham decided to ban Angela Saunders (48) from buying some lager.

For why?

Ms Saunders was with her 15 year old daughter.

Ms Saunders is quoted by the Telegraph:
"I'm still in shock. It's completely bonkers. I'm a very loyal customer, but after this I'll never go back.

I felt so humiliated and embarrassed it made me look like I was trying to buy alcohol for my daughter."
Tesco has since apologised and admitted the employee acted incorrectly.

A spokeswoman said:
"We take our 'Think 25' alcohol policy very seriously. However, in this instance the colleague was incorrect in their judgement.

We are sincerely sorry for the dissatisfactory experience Ms Saunders had in store and for any offence caused."
In other words, now that it has become public we admit our mistake!

Oh, and by the way, "dissatisfactory"???

  1. Dear Mr Frost

    Since the legal age for alcohol consumption in this country is 5 (five) years old, unless they've changed it recently, there is no reason why parents should not buy alcohol with the specific intention of giving it to their own children.

    Some staff seem to conflate the prohibition of adults buying alcohol for a random child who is not their ward with that of buying it on behalf of their own child or ward.

    It used to be the case that a child as young as 12 could consume wine with a meal in a restaurant, provided the parent or guardian poured. This may have changed under our beloved government's neo-prohibitionist zeal.

    Hope this helps.


    PS she should shop at Waitrose. I often hear parents discussing the merits of wines and beers with their children. dp

    @DP - lol, probably Tesco doesn't expect its customers and offspring to holiday en France whereas Waitrose's younger customers could probably precociously bore about different grape varieties.


  3. What is it with this "'Think 25' alcohol policy". I thouhj the mimumum age for buying alcohol was 18!
