PREGNANT WOMAN FORCED TO LIE … SELF APPOINTED NANNIES IN THE NANNY STATE

It’s my understanding that this sort of thing has happened in the USA as well.  I believe that because there isn’t any reason for BMEWS people who told that to lie.  It’s damed disappointing though, to know that even in America this sort of lunacy has been let loose.  I guess it just proves that no one country owns the stupid nanny license.  Make the ole head do a turn though.  Why are folks putting up with it?

So, here’s another loony tune, moonbat one for the books.  I have also included a few comments from the article source which is The Daily Mail. Shows that a lot of folks are aware and unhappy, but nobody seems to be able to stem the stupid tide.

Sainsbury btw, is a major super market chain over here. And like Tesco, they need to retrain their staff methinks.

Sainsbury’s shopworker refuses to sell pregnant woman Cheddar cheese

By Daily Mail Reporter
05th October 2009

A pregnant woman was forced to lie and promise supermarket staff she would not eat a certain type of cheese before they would sell it to her.

Janet Lehain asked for some Canadian Cheddar while she was shopping at Sainsbury’s.

But the member of staff serving her on the deli counter said she could not have it because it was made from unpasteurised milk.

Sainsbury’s bosses have since admitted she got it wrong. In fact, pregnant women are advised to avoid eating ripened soft cheeses of the Brie, Camembert and blue-veined types, whether pasteurised or unpasteurised. Hard cheeses such as Cheddar can be safely eaten during pregnancy.

Mrs Lehain, who is pregnant with her third child, replied by saying that she was aware of the current medical advice and wanted to buy the cheese.

Eventually the member of staff working at Sainsbury’s Fairfield Park store at Clapham, Bedfordshire, handed over the cheese.

In a letter of formal complaint, Mrs Lehain said: ‘What followed was the most patronising encounter I have had the misfortune of experiencing in a long time and made worse by the fact it was entirely unexpected given the seemingly simple task.

‘The member of staff told me how lucky my generation of pregnant women are to have such information available to them because this was not the case “in her day”.

‘I could only respond by saying that I thought pregnant women in the past were probably a whole lot less stressed and guilt-ridden as a result.’

Mrs Lehain, from Bedford, added: ‘I asked if I could have the cheese if I promised not to eat any of it. How ridiculous that I had to openly lie in order to buy a piece of cheese!

‘Even if I were ignorant of the risks associated with this period in a woman’s life it is not the job of a supermarket to tell people what they should or not be eating.

‘Indeed if I am missing something, and the Government in its wisdom has made supermarkets guardians of public health without me noticing, then I should like to leave the country now.’

Mrs Lehain said: ‘Are they for example going to stop obese people buying chocolate and other high fat food?’

A spokesman for Sainsbury’s said: ‘It is not our policy to refuse sale of goods on grounds that they may be unsuitable for pregnant women, although we do ask our colleagues to make customers aware if there are any safety concerns.

‘Customers should always refer to the product packaging for the most accurate and up to date information. In this case, our colleague made a mistake unpasteurised cheddar does not pose a risk to health during pregnancy.’

Sainsbury’s are a class act. Yesterday I was refused a bottle of cider (despite being 28 years old and presenting them with ID) because my partner (also 28) didn’t also have ID. Common sense didn’t kick in at all… I presented them with my debit card so they could check that it was in fact me purchasing the cider, but they still refused citing their challenge 25 policy… I pointed out I understood that if someone looked under 25 they would be ID’d and that I was fine with that, however, I had presented ID.... but they insisted both of us (irrelevant of who was actually doing the purchasing) needed ID. I asked if I had a small child with me would they still refuse and they said no… I even pointed out that even if my partner was underage as long as the alcohol is being consumed at home with parental consent it is not illegal… nothing doing. In the end I walked out without buying anything because the kid on the till said I had to hurry up and pay for what I could buy!!!

I had to lie at Boots awhile ago. I had a slight rash on my eyelids and the GP advised me to go to the pharmacy and ask for a tube of 1% steroid cream.
The jobsworth gave me a lecture about how they were not going to sell it to me because it wasnot to be put anywhere near the eyes!
This was despite my telling them that my GP had said it was OK.
I then went over the road to another branch and told them I had a rash on my a*** and was given the ointment without any problems!!
Just learn to play their games - they are all covering their asses. I should know - I am a lawyer and it’s all getting ridiculously out of hand.
Whatever happened to commonsense?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
