Woolies - Saving Kids From Being Gunned Down By Cops Over Blue Plastic Sword Mix-Ups
If I was working for them, facing queues of miserly vultures having a moan that the discounts in the firesale aren’t substantial enough, I’d be ignoring guidelines and cutting corners left right and centre as I wait for the inevitable day when I’m told not to come back because the store is no more.
In Birmingham’s branches, they’re being diligent to the last – refusing to sell Star Wars lightsaber toys to under-18s in case they’re mistaken for real firearms. Harsh - I mean, if Trading Standards were to intervene because they’d flogged a blue plastic toy to a nine-year old, would anyone at Woolies really give a toss?
Not only should they be actively flogging light sabers to kids, but they should be chucking in free cigarette lighters and bottles of meths as well. Come on Woolworths staff – rip up the rule book and go out in a blaze of glory! Give us retail anarchy!!
