I was with a friend of mine in Tesco's and I tried to buy a packet of tesco value plastic fork, knife and spoons. We only required the spoon but when we got to checkout they asked to see our ID. As we were both 17 we couldn't get served so we asked if we could buy the packet, remove the spoon and dispose of the knives and forks and go. They still refused to do this as it would be a breach of the law.

Basically I want to know which stupid ****er made it illegal to sell a plastic fork and knife to someone under the age of 18, find them and stab them with plastic forks until they realise that I'm not damaging them and they unmake it illegal. Stupid laws need removing and this is where we should start. Bring back underage fork buying!

A freind of a friend got ID'd buying vanilla extract. Apparently it's 35% alcohol, but I'm not sure I know anyone who'd be willing to find out if you can get drunk on it.

Pwnt. I got ID'd trying to buy Counter Strike: Source, which is funny because I have a big goatee..

That must be the worst thing to happen to anyone.

Be denied plastic spoons and forks. oh god what has the world come to...


On a lighter note, I bought some Ben&Jerry's and picked up a free plastic spork from Tesco today. And just ate it outside.

Only teaspoons. And I'm not going to eat an entire meal using a teaspoon. Or use them as chopsticks as the girl in the shop suggested.

I live in Leeds, England btw.

Supermarket staff are usually fucking morons. They're almost as bad as the Labour party who thought up these retarded laws in the first place.

Thats hillarious. Seriously, id die laughing if somone IDed me buying plastic knives/forks, what about the little blue ones you get with chippy? Could they be a possible offence?
#29
You get ID'd for everything over here, its ridiculous.

The once we were having a family party and my Aunt asked me and my cousins to get some alcohol from the Sainsburys opposite. I'm 16, my cousin was 15 and my other cousin was 19. We got the beer and they ID'd my cousin. They accepted he was 19, but they wouldn't let him buy the beer because he might give to us when he went outside.

My cousin then had an argument with the woman at the checkout because this completely unfair. If a parent has a child with them, they're allowed to buy alcohol, how is that any different? It pissed me off so much.

i worked at tesco for 4 years in the wines and spirits departent then they ID'd me in the same store the other day for a dvd, they just like being assholes, next you'll need your parents with you to use cutlery in the cafe.

I don't get it I'm sure you could get a stick from the ground that would be sharper and more lethal. They have gone overboard to try to reassure people that knife crimes will be prevented but they're also useful tools. I'm sure the pen-knife has saved more lives than it has destroyed (although I can't actually back this up).

Unmake it illegal?

I've got plastic cutlery before without needing ID. Knives and everything. You fail at life.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

i work at spar. We have a huge list of stuff we're spose to ID people for. Some of it's just dumb sh*t. Like party poppers. You have to be 16 to buy them... because the small amount of explosive n streamers inside could destory the world... Plastic forks is a new one to me though

If he takes that comment seriously, gets genuinely depressed and hangs himself, then maybe he will actually have failed at life. Until that happens, I think we can all get along with the fact that I'm not being serious and what some stranger says to him on the internet about plastic knives will barely affect him, if at all. If this were a more sensitive topic or someone had just died or something, obviously, I wouldn't say that to him.

And of all the cruel and insulting things that people say on this site, you pick up on that one? Where have you been?

What about a tooth brush? I could kill five people with it in the time it takes the cashier to look for change in the drawer.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
