Yet another example of gitmo supermarket behaviour reached WineOfTheWeek at the weekend with the news that a father who went shopping with his daughter was unable to buy a bottle of wine because his eight year old child did not have ID.
Despite explaining his daughter was only eight, Navid Asadi claims that Tesco staff still refused to sell him the alcohol.
‘I just can’t believe it. I totally understand if you are 18 and with a group of kids but my daughter is eight.” said Mr Asadi
‘I was buying potatoes, bananas, ham, regular shopping, and had a bottle of wine and they would not serve it to me.
They didn’t serve me so I left the whole shopping and walked out.’ ‘What did they want me to do? Let her stand outside on her own because I want to buy a bottle of wine?’ A spokesman for the supermarket said: ‘Tesco is unable to confirm this incident occurred. ‘We are looking into it with the store as a matter of urgency.’
Mr Asadi is from Essex.
