If you’re lucky enough to look about 18, there’s a good chance you’ll be asked to provide ID at the supermarket to buy alcohol, knives or glue.
Now an addition has been made to that list of potentially hazardous items – chocolate pudding.
Robert Nemeti was amazed when he was asked for ID while buying a microwaveable pudding at Tesco.

I could burn myself? Guess I shouldn't dress myself either, I may end up strangling myself with my panties.

I'm just waiting for the scales next to the cash registers.  Sorry Ma'm, Sorry Sir, it appears you are over the weight limit for this high caloric food item.

I'm also just living for the day the cops pull me over and ticket me for not buying enough brocolli and for over-indulging in pie....and ...uh, it seems you have over-stepped your StarBuck's association.

Let's face it the shop assistant didn't have a clue either.

This is a direct result of socialized medicine.  When you can potentially hurt yourself it becomes the responsibility and concern of society at large.

But it wasn't the ignorant shop assistant that prompted the need to see ID.  It was in the bar code.  It's part of the process of desensitizing people on the road to less and less expectaion of privacy.

I don't think the shop assistant was ignorant. But the scanner wouldn't have said it was asking for ID 'for being a burn risk', she made that decision, so therefore didn't really have a clue and was guessing as to why she had to authorise the sale. Some shop assistants like the power! If it was me working there I'd just retify the machine and not humiliate the customer further, she didn't have to make an issue out of it, if she had any common sense she'd see it was a mistake!

It was a mistake -

"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."

If the guy had gone to one of the regular check-out tills manned by an assistant, it might not have happened.

That's what I get for not reading the article.  What can I say, when men in black follow you everywhere you go in black helicopters (no doubt tracking you with you cell phone or possibly ET implant) you tend to get a little paranoid.
