    Got this emailed today, probably done the rounds already but never mind, made me laugh.
    Are you guilty of any of these?

    This letter was recently sent by Tesco's Head Office to a customer
    In Oxford:

    Dear Mrs. Murray,

    While we 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 offences 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

    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 Calor gas 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. November 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives
    in the Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the antidepressants were.

    10. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming
    the "Mission Impossible" theme.

    11. December 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the
    look" using different size funnels.

    12. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed, yelled
    "PICK ME!" "PICK ME!"

    13. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, assumed the foetal position and screamed "NO! NO! It's those voices again."

    And; last, but not least:

    14. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a
    while; then yelled, very loudly,
    "There is no toilet paper in here."

    Yours sincerely,

    Charles Brown
    Store Manager

    I do the mission impossible one in the Tesco Express almost everyday!

    Like the condom one though, might have to think of some variations on that theme....slipping Preparation H into a few peoples trolleys maybe....

  5. I do the condom thing whenever I see the opportunity and grace a deiu have never been rumbled.I also have been bestowing feminine hygiene products on unwary chaps baskets for the last thirty years.My own personal best was slipping 2 "reduced to clear" Melton Mowbray pork pies into the trolley of an Islamic gentleman with a hennaed beard. :D

    I might also do the condom one with KY jelly, or pregnancy tests on minors and OAP's possabilities are endless.

    I like the alarm clocks one. One of the more malicious. I've also done the condom one. Works best of families where mum and dad are out together. I've caused a couple of domestics with that one.

    I always find shouting 'Going long!' and starting to run down an aisle when my mate picks up kitchen roll or anything American footie shaped quite amusing. When they throw it for me to catch it's so much fun just to stop running and look somewhere else as the kitchen roll/bog roll/loaf of bread goes hurtling towards some poor sods head.

    Your mission. Place any 3 of the following items in the trolley of an orthodox jewish gentleman:-

    Pork scratching
    Deli ham end off cuts
    Pork pies of any kind
    Wafer thin ham. The stuff that is only fit for dog food. Double points if it is a realy massive box.
    (Anything else you can think of)
  12. Extra points will be awarded for the deposit of a living, breathing pig in the trolley (double bonus marks if it is liberally coated with shellfish).

    Students from Carmel college used to pay us to buy them bacon, pork, etc, etc, while they were being watched by their teachers, we used to grass them up to the tutors who gave us dough for snitching - happy days!
