Prats of The Week - Sainsburys

Prats of The WeekTis a grey and damp Monday morning.

Tis time methinks to award my prestigious, and internationally renowned, "Prats of The Week" Award.

My thanks to a loyal reader who wishes to nominate Sainsburys, Forest Hill.

For why?

Well, he was looking through a recent receipt from the branch only to see that he is required to have an age check done for "non-alcoholic" lager.

Editor's note: He has profusely apologised to me and all the loyal readers of Nanny Knows Best for purchasing such a product, and says it will never happen again:)

Anyhoo, as he notes, the idea of asking for proof of age to buy a non alcoholic brew seems to be counter intuitive (most especially given Nanny's hatred of booze).

Sainsburys Forest Hill, well deserving Prats of The Week!

  1. This doesn't surprise me at all, after all. I recall last year a supermarket drone refusing to sell a bottle of Jack Daniel's BBQ marinade to a customer because she could not produce ID....The major supermarkets do appear to be in league with Nanny, perhaps hoping that eventually people will just say "Just give me the bloody ID card so I can get on with my life." However. I for one will never willingly apply for an EUSSR ID card and already boycot those businesses that have app0lied to assist Nanny with data collection for the ID database.

    It's funny how we have the supermarkets policing the sale of alcohol isn't it?

    I mean, since we've had this "do you look lucky enough to be under 25" bollocks, nothing has changed.

    Young louts still get pissed on street corners and alleyways (and a lot worse), so what has it achieved apart from causing aggravation for lots of over 18 legal drinkers at tills up and down the country?

    Bugger all. I say, change society, bring kids into the home for a wee semi-legal drink instead of driving them out on the streets to drown on cheap white cider...

  3. Tesco do exactly the same thing, it's not just Sainsburys.

    I love the 'editor's note' bit Ken!

  5. Since he found it on the receipt, and wasn't asked in person, perhaps he seemed young enough that it didn't matter? Maybe they only ask for proof of age to those that seem OVER 25 for non alcoholic beverages? Is that really too much to hope for? Well, I suppose it is, but here's a sip to dreaming (don't tell Nanny, as still in the office, I is).
