I don't blame him

What the fuck is it with Tesco?

A man drove a Rolls-Royce through the window of a Tesco supermarket yesterday after staff at the store refused to sell him alcohol.

Witnesses said that the man had come into the store in Andover, Hampshire, at around 4.30pm to buy alcohol but had been turned away because he was already drunk.


Why, whenever there is a story about a shop acting as the hectoring, nannying moral guardian of the feeble, it's always Tesco? What is wrong with these cunts?

I used to work in that very store. More Tescos drama, from the same shop:

One night, I was working near the door and spotted a large dog walking in. Followed by a guy with a big stick. I thought "Fuck that" and ignored him.

A few minuites later, filled with anxoious looking managers and customers, I noticed a trail of blood drops leading all over the store, including into the back room and the bakery. THen I saw the guy's face, he had one eye, it was bleeding, and he was sure the chavs that did him over were hiding in our store.

Tesco can be a fucked up place, but my stint at Asda was worse. Fake IDs every ten minuites, and chavs taking the store wheelchairs and riding them down the escalators, almost taking 3 other customers out in the process.

Man drives to Tesco to buy alcohol and they refuse to serve him because they believe he's already drunk. He proves them correct by then driving his car into the store.


Had they served him and then he went off and mowed down a handful of pedestrians the story would have been a whole lot worse. And he would have had a Tesco receipt in the car.

Rolls Royce? Now that is style. I use a Jaguar for all my ram-raids.

I work for one of Tesco's competitors and in the trade Tesco are well known for being a bunch of crooked wankers.

More grocery-related mayhem.

Dunno if it says anything about the driving down our way, but the local Tesco have those bollards all along the front to prevent exactly this.

There was at least one ram-raid - they were dragging out the cash machines when they were housed in in-door Daleks - but we have also had a greater number of people doing the classic of confusing the brake and accellerator on automatic cars.

One old dear took out an ornamental wall and floral planter - which was a big stout trough - before she finally came to a stop. The supermarket then put in rows of bollards all along the pedestrian walk-ways in order to give use some cover as we scuttle for the store.

I tell ya, it's a jungle out there.

Falling about pissed he wouldn't have gotten served in a pub either. He's being done for attempted muder.Lucky it wasn't murder. Over a few bottles of booze. FFS!!!!

Oh, ok everyone, lay off Mr Caton now.

It wasn't because he was refused booze. Turns out he had a legitimate reason after all!

Mr Caton, sir, I salute you and your unique customer dispute-settling skills...

That's interesting, really, does that mean that Tesco slandered / libelled this nutter by putting out the word that he was drunk, when actually he was a dissatisfied customer?

JuliaM said...

I think, when someone drives their car through your shop window as a means of duspute resolution, it's a fair bet they are also drunk...

Or from Andover.

My shop was ram raided years ago. During the night. We shit our pants, not funny at all. And it wasn't daft young boys either.
