Know a thing or two about hot pudding...
 
2012-11-30 05:30:05 PM  

Jon iz teh kewl: Smeggy Smurf: vudukungfu: vernonFL: Yorkshire pudding is a pastry.

Black pudding is blood sausage.

Neither are edible.

Not true. Both are technically edible. However edible does not mean good to eat. A turd by definition is edible.

what about legos.. or duplo??


Neither has any digestable organic material so no. But I'd rather eat legos than british cooking I mean turds

When it comes to "technically edible", you have to apply the Crocodile Dundee test - If it tastes like shiat, but will keep you alive, it's "edible".

The explanation that it's a "one off error" doesn't explain how the clerk had a vaguely plausible reason ready. Sounds like Tesco might be doing wholesale identity theft?

When I was younger I worked at a store and the checkout was regularly doing this mad thing where it would demand an age verification for chocolate. It was because the management was lazy and the UPC was set by category, and some of the chocolates from a particular brand were liquors. All it needed was to fix a data point, but no-one ever did it. It sounds like a similar thing here. Thank God the Daily Mail got there faster than orange juice through a man with the squirts.

Federal law to ID for the non-alcoholic beer (which is fine wih me) or federal law that they have to accept the passport?

Meijer definately did not take the passport. Also fine with me because I bought fancy scotch at a nice liquor store instead. And non-alcoholic beer. Everyone won is that situation.

No, in the US, McDonalds ends up paying megabucks to a woman who burns herself with their coffee.

Donnchadha: Well, if it's in the Daily Mail it must have happened exactly as described

/Bonjour


Exactly. The POS system had that item incorrectly tagged as age controlled. If the staff member did indeed tell him that it was because "he might get burned", I'd suggest that it was just a bit of banter. She approved the sale without requiring ID.

This sort of nonsense is the Heil's bread-and-butter though. When it comes to the gutter press, we're all of us lying in the gutter, but it's looking at the drain.

They are a private business. They can require customers to display their genitalia as ID, if they wish.

Everyone most certainly did not win if you bought non-alcoholic beer.

Accept the passport, Non-alcoholic beer is neither beer nor non alcoholic.

Grocery stores want to track your purchases and sell off your personal data. That's why they want your ID.

Saying "It's because pudding gets hot when cooked" makes no sense. Everything gets hot when cooked - that's what cooking does, it makes it hot.

Just tell 'em to fark off, shop elsewhere.

Yeah, that's the weirder part. Not that a machine might make an error--but that the clerk and management would say "Oh yeah, this happens all the time. It's quite normal for our scanner to ask for an ID for pudding. Not to worry, citizen."

Stores computer system farks up, wrong sku got entered or something, and employee makes something up to justify seemingly assinine policy to placate customer. I did that shiat all the time when i worked retail. Customers get mad when you say "i have no idea", its better just to lie.

There was one a while back where someone got carded for a spoon. You almost have to wonder if someone is just mistagging products for laughs.

> 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.'

So, it was a mistake. Sounds like the clerk was either making shiat up, or making an excuse.

Last winter, I had a minor bug; achy body, slightly upset stomach, stuffy nose, etc. I had to stop at Kroger anyway, so I picked up some Alka-Seltzer Cold and went through the self-check lanes. When I rang up the Alka-Seltzer, I had to wait for an attendant to be free so they could check my ID. They told me it was because it was a decongestant, but the clerk acted confused and preturbed about it.

So what really happened is that they miscoded all the decongestants. This is in Illinois, and they check require suphedrine to be purchased with ID at the pharmacy, and for a time this town required ID for dextromethorphan. This had neither. Whoopsydoodle, they fixed the error, the next time I bought the stuff it was no problem.

I forgot the Law of Fark: I should have called the Chicago Tribune and the New York Post, and started shouting from the rooftops about the nanny state gone amok.

theMightyRegeya: > 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.'



So it was a mistake - just 'fess up Tesco. If it's a mistake, it's a mistake. Someone programmed the item incorrectly. That is if it was indeed a mistake. It's a data error. It's not a programming error. Shiat happens.

Not necessarily racist. Just a solution that doesn't work for a problem that doesn't exist.
