Ed Finnerty: ManateeGag: microwave pudding? who does that?I tried it but the metal lids kept sparking and eventually caught my microwave on fire. Don't even ask about the plastic spoon.
iron de havilland: kbronsito: And this is why we have a second ammendment. Withouth it, the king of england could tell Americans that they need id to purchase junk food.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/BonjourExactly. 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.
Happy Hours: 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.
Skirl Hutsenreiter: HST's Dead Carcass: I went shopping over the summer and used a self checkout lane. I bought a 6 packs of IBC Root Beer and it all but set an alarm off. The attendant came over, carded me (for farking Root Beer!) and checked every single bottle in the 6 pack.Apparently some smart kids started putting beer bottles that look like IBC bottles in IBC 6 packs and buying them.This may explain one of our local grocery stores' machines beeping for ID when you buy bottled root beer. The checkers never actually bother to card for it, but it's an annoyance to stand around at the self-checkout waiting for someone to come over.I thought their system was just really stupid and no one had bothered to fix it all these years, but maybe it's an actual corporate policy that the checkers don't follow.\I try to avoid shopping at that store anyways.
Rufus Lee King: A lot of folks say that young people are violent, right? Well, how would you feel if you were old enough to have...intercourse...with the partner of your choice, yet still could not buy pudding at Tesco?[i.ytimg.com image 480x360]
