Tesco refuse to serve 92-year-old because he has no I.D.
Veteran of the war, 92-year-old Tony Ball, was stopped from buying booze at his local Tesco, relieving him of his last pleasure on Earth, leaving him to stare blankly out of the window. Why was he stopped - because he didn't have any ID (and well done for being able to read and remember a headline).
Tony was all set to get stuck into two bottles of vodka but found a check-out girl asking him to prove he was over 18. Let us look at his youthful face shall we?
Tony said: "I laughed, but she then said, 'We’re not allowed to serve you if you’re underage'. By the look on her face she wasn't joking. I said, 'Do you mean it?' and she said, 'Yes'. So I said, 'You can tell Tesco what to do with their stuff', and walked out."
One of the managers at the Tesco in Feltham, said that the staff member in question had done it before 'as a joke', continuing: "Our colleague was trying to be light-hearted, but we appreciate the joke wasn't shared. We have apologised and we're keeping Mr Ball's bottles for him if he chooses to drop by, with our compliments."
