Tesco Decide To Give Customers A Laugh

Unfortunately, this story about Tesco bombarding customers with adverts, won’t apply to me, as I don’t drive, but to have a laugh, I’d willingly buy someone some petrol to see what inappropriate adverts I got. After all, you’ve got shaving products, Downton Abbey boxed sets, holidays outside of the EU, gluten-rich fast food joints like Burger King and Subway, cars and car insurance for a start.

Some could be a lot worse than just inappropriate.  Imagine showing a Jew or a Muslim, an advert for some of the finest pork sausages, a woman, who has trouble conceiving, an advert for children’s’ toys. I would laugh loudly, if I got shown an advert for a romantic all-in holiday for two, but others wouldn’t find it so funny!

In fact, this is one of those ideas that could create a whole lot of work for some smart lawyers, who know every niche of the law.

It may catch on, but not in the way Tesco feel it should!

  1. I was at a craft show a few years ago with a friend who had recently lost her mum. One of the stands was from Bury Craft Club, and they had a lucky dip. Pam and I had a go, and when we opened our parcel we each had the makings of a cloth carrier bag. Which some unthinking person had called the Bury Bag. Pam was very very upset, the ladies on the stand hadn’t a clue why it upset her!

    • We should think what we do and say. Death in some ways is the last taboo. I don’t think the death of my wife and son, affected me as much as it would many, as their deaths were very much a release from pain, and C especially, prepared me for life without her. Several widows I’ve met, where their partner died suddenly seem to suffer a lot more.

      They should have called it a Green Bag from Bury!
