WEIRD NEWS: Serving Dessert ... No Kids Allowed!
Shoppers in Britain are used to showing ID if they're trying to buy alcohol or cigarettes, but there's now a new item on the adults-only list ... microwavable pudding.
24-year-old Robert Nemeti found that out when he tried to use a self-checkout lane at his local supermarket to make his purchase – only to be flagged by the computer. When an employee rushed over, she asked to see some identification, which Nemeti did not have with him – but the worker agreed that he appeared to be of age, so she approved the transaction.
Nemeti says, "I asked her why and was stunned when she told me: 'It gets hot when you cook it – and you may burn yourself.' Health and safety has gone crazy if you now have to prove you can be trusted with a chocolate pudding." (Daily Mail)
