Mother's anger at Help for Heroes 'snub'
Thursday, October 29, 2009
A mother of three claims supermarket staff refused to serve her because she was wearing a wristband to support members of the Armed Forces wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Beth Hoyle said she was turned away from tills at Asda because a checkout operator objected to her Help for Heroes charity band - telling her she was 'supporting the war'.

Mrs Hoyle said a supervisor at the store in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, backed the worker.

Asda, which sells the wristbands in some of its stores, last night said it was taking the complaint very seriously.

Glad to see the Metro are on the ball, as ever - this was reported days ago.

Newsflash - ASDA employ's idiots on minimum wage.

In all seriousness though, I think the staff member should have been disciplined rather than backed by their (also idiotic) supervisor.

Bad publicity for ASDA. And they didn't even get any money from serving the lady... double fail.

Supporting Troops is not the same as supporting the war.

I would be surprised if there's ANY truth in this whatsoever. She's proably been barred for shoplifting or somethnig and is using this as an excuse. I doubt ANY retard on the till would think ASDAs would back them up on this. We get frivolous, indeed malicous compliants on a daily basis and 99.9999% turn out to be utter crocks.

Bit dusty in here.

Anyone know a suitable poem?
The lady got no scoff
Cause the Paki fucked her off
So off she went to whinge
She's got a smelly minge
There once was a chav mother named Beth
Who went to Asda for Listerine for her breath
She was fucked off at the till
Because she couldn't pay the bill
And blamed her lack of funds on an ethnic minority checkout operator.

Or something like that, probably.

.... and pushed me HforH wrist band as far down her fekkin' throat as phsically possible! :twisted:
