Hold the reindeer Santa, the worst job in the world just became available…. a “Christmas Light Untangler”. Go Tesco, they just posted a part time position for some fool to untangle customers Chrissy lights. The successful applicant must be able to untangle 10 feet in 3 minutes …oh and ” be passionate about Christmas” (insert eye roll). Dear god, does it cover stress leave?

OK, no need to panic Tesco shoppers in Birmingham, but the next time you buy McCoy’s variety pack of chips you might want to put your ear up to it first and check for sounds of vermin. A mice invasion left shoppers screaming in fear as about 6 pink mice burst out of a bag of crisps. Seems the store is plagued by mice who are no longer happy with the accommodation at the nearby canal and railway track. So desperate to pig out on snacks the creatures came up through the floor and headed straight to aisle 6 .
Geez, is nothing sacred? Seems Tesco are banning people from shopping at their stores if they happen to be in their PJs. BUT WHY OH WHY? Well, it seems some precious shoppers felt uncomfortable and embarrassed by the state of some people’s night attire. Oh and the first victim of the “No Pyjama” rule, Elaine Carmody who was escorted out by security said “I’ve got lovely pairs of pyjamas, with bears and penguins on them. I’ve worn my best ones today, just so I look tidy.” See shoppers, jammie wearers are human too!
Psst Geez, first the PJs then the Snuggies when will it all end?
Damn, I nearly went a whole week without a Nanny State story but this one just snuck in under the wire. Evidently Tesco in the UK have recently introduced a “Think 25” campaign where it encourages customers to show their ID when purchasing certain products like ciggies and alcohol if they look under 25. Saves the check-out chick (or Chuck) the embarrassment of having to ask. Anywho, when Emma Sheppard (21) went a shopping at the Tesco Worcestershire store she was shocked, stunned, angered when the check out girl asked her to show ID for…wait for it…a pack of teaspoons! Yes, teaspoons.Mrs Sheppard and her hubby were so peeved about the stupidity of it all they exited stage left without so much as taking their groceries. A Tesco spokesperson was quick to apologized saying “Some utensils, such as knifes, will carry a ‘Think 25’ alert when scanned through the checkout.” Hmm, what someone under 21 can’t buy a knife either! Geez.
