Tesco supermarket went to court to claim £1.50 compensation due to a guy having spilled milk in one of the stores. This is pathetic on all fronts considering it’s only £1.50 but this is one of the reasons Tesco is in the pits of oblivion.
A 40 year old guy was forced out of one of the Tesco stores in Mid Wales and was upset as expected. Therefore he decided to throw milk all over the floor.
A statement from Julie Sullivan who is a prosecutor on the case said:
‘He was told to return the milk he was holding and leave the store and he threw it at the floor in temper. He was verbally abusive and escorted off the premises”
Tesco should be ashamed for even going to court for a stingy £1.50. This has more than likely been done to send a strong message to anyone else who dares throw milk 😛 Either way the only message being sent is to shop elsewhere in future.
On a personal note, I recently discovered expired pancakes being sold in a Tesco branch last week. Tesco only fixed the situation once a formal complaint was filed with the Tesco head office.
