The Dangers of Puddings

'Tis the season to be jolly etc..unless that is you are Nanny!

As we prepare for our Christmas feasts, let us not forget that it is not just a time for stuffing a nice bird and for sinking our teeth into that same hot bird with plump breasts and tender thighs; but also a time for luxuriating in something hot and steamy.

I refer of course to puddings!

Unfortunately those of you shop at one of the Tesco stores in Southampton may have a wee spot of bother buying your puddings, for it seems that at Tesco they regard hot puddings as a health and safety issue and require you to carry proof of your age when trying to buy one.

I jest ye not!

Just ask Robert Nemeti (24) who recently tried to buy a chocolate pudding from Tesco Southampton; only to be barred from doing so by the self check out machine, until he produced proof of his age to a member of staff.

For why?

Tesco deemed the pudding to pose a risk to the roof of his mouth!

A member of staff at the store in Southampton demanded Mr Nemeti produce identification showing he was over 18, but that because he looked old enough anyway she waived him through when he said he had no proof.

Tesco said:
The self service machines can be temperamental. The pudding should not be an age-restricted product. It’s a mystery why the machine prompted staff to ask for ID.’ 

The machine is only reacting to its programming input by Tesco staff.

The fact that no one in Tesco had the commonsense at the time to realise this was bollocks speaks volumes about how Nanny has dumbed us all down!

Enjoy your birds and puddings this Christmas everyone, before Nanny bans them!

    I don’t want to piss on anyone’s chips here, but this does not seem to be policy throughout Tesco stores, so perhaps they should be given the benefit of the doubt on this occasion.

    That is not to say that Tescos are not complete bastards, but I personally prefer to reserve my anger and frustration for a more worthwhile time…………………………………….

    1. I did say "Southampton", and this site is a tad tongue in cheek at times anyway:)

    2. Surely pissing in one's chips will be banned by the health ans safety chaps; even if it is a way to cool them down to avoid burning one's willy :)

  2. Tescos in general, do appear to enact Nanny's diktats with glee.

    I'm afraid that I would have told Tescos to stuff their pudding up their arse after they had given me their blessing to purchase it......Then again, I made a vow not to shop at Tescos a long time ago because of all their silly rules and regulations to buy anything from a bottle of beer to a teaspoon.

    I agree with you Ken; all too often businesses try to blame a computer for their own stupidity......A computer will only do what it is programmed to do so, silly PC garbage in, silly PC garbage out!

    One glimmer of hope Waitrose in Wokingham have removed the padlocks on the knives they sell so one would not need to find an assistant to get you a knife from the display so that a checkout drone can then ask for your id.......A small step in the right direction.

    Can somebody help me please, I am constantly returning to the pudding post? I feel inextricably drawn to read all about puddings - all the time, I've even stopped watching the cricket to view the pudding page - something about 'luxuriating in something hot and steamy' ..... help
