What To Do In Tescos When The Wife's Shopping

Recommended Posts

Proof of what can happen if a wife or girlfriend drags her husband or boyfriend along shopping

This letter was actually sent by Tesco's Head Office to a customer in Oxford :

Dear Mrs. ***********,

Whilst we would like to thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco Loyalty Card, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering

banning you and your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his antics.

Below is a list of his actions over the past few months all verified by our surveillance cameras:

1. June 15:

Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's trolleys when they weren't looking.

2. July 2:

Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7:

Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to feminine products aisle.

4. July 19:

Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone, 'Code 3' in housewares..... and watched what happened.

5. August 14:

Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

6. September 15:

Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a Calorgas stove.

7. September 23:

When the Deputy Manager asked if she could help him, he began to cry and asked, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'

8.. October 4:

Looked right into the security camera; used it as a mirror, picked his nose, and ate it.

9. October 10:

While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the antidepressants were.

10. November 3:

Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming the Mission Impossible' theme.

11.November 6:

In the kitchenware aisle, practised the 'Madonna look' using different size funnels.

12. November 18:

Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed, yelled' PICK ME!' 'PICK ME!'

13. November 21:

When an announcement came over the loudspeaker, assumed the foetal position and screamed 'NO! NO! It's those voices again.'

And; last, but not least:

14. November 23:

Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a while; then yelled, very loudly, 'There is no toilet paper in here.'

Edit: oh dear, I put "Tesco's" in the title.

The American version has Wal-Mart in the title and reads slightly differently, so definitely a work of fiction; either that or true in one continent and modified for the other(s)...

I can believe that, there is a sort of sixth sense that women have. Maybe it's the eyes on stalks and the drooping tongue that gives it away. ;)

And what is it about the female mind that can store, retrieve and use against men something inconsequential said or done at any time during he previous decade. Fellas stand no chance.
