Barbecue sauce madame? Do you have any ID?

By Daily Mail Reporter

Last updated at 12:34 AM on 10th June 2008

Cashiers at a Tesco refused to sell a woman barbecue sauce --because she did not have any ID.

Claire Birchell, 25, was told she could not buy the Jack Daniel's sauce because it contains 2 per cent alcohol and she could not prove she was old enough to buy it.

Staff even refused to sell the bottle to her brother-in-law, Philip Dover, 27, who was with her at the time and did have ID, because they said he would just give it to her.

Miss Birchell had been hoping to stock up on the sauce while she was visiting her parents in Flitwick, near Bedford, as the shops near her home in Liverpool do not sell it.

So she was astonished to be told she could not buy the condiment because it contains a small amount of whiskey.

Mr Dover said: 'We just could not believe it. It's not as if we were going to go and sit down the park drinking it.

'Claire lives in Liverpool and she can't buy the sauce up there so she was really disappointed she couldn't get it in Flitwick. It just seems crazy over a sauce.'

Mr Dover added that he had gone back to the store a few days later and bought a bottle of the sauce without any problem.

It is not the first time Tesco staff have been accused of being overly-strict in policing sales to minors.

Last month the store stopped selling alcohol to parents if they were with their children in case they passed it on to them.

This meant many shoppers who took their children on their weekly shop found they were denied the beer and wine in their trolley.

At the time Tesco defended the move saying they preferred staff to 'err on the side of caution'.

Supermarkets have become increasingly strict over the selling of alcohol as the Government has imposed tougher rules and penalties.

Any shop caught selling drink to under-18s three times in three months faces a £10,000 fine.

Good Grief.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

We buy that here at the local Tesco's and it always prompts to ask for ID. The cashiers always give us the ####### face and just press enter (or what ever key it is to say yes I verified their age).

Damn good stuff though! :thumbs:

They might. I knew a hard core alcoholic who used to get gutted on mouthwash. Methinks he may be dead now.
