The other day The Wife and I went to the supermarket. She was wearing a hooded top and as it was pouring with rain and freezing cold she had the hood up.
As we entered Tesco we were approached by a security guard who told us she had to take her hood down. We tried to ask why but we were just told "it was the new rules". There are no signs up to tell anyone about these new rules.
While we did our shopping it was infuriating to count the number of people who were wearing baseball caps, stocking caps, ski hats, trilbies, head-scarves, turbans, etc, etc. Does this head-covering moritorium only apply to my wife? Or just people in "hoodies"? Or just women?
Is Tesco's new anti-hoodie rule something for my local Addlestone branch? Or is it nationwide? Either way, why are there no signs or publicity about this ludicrous rule?
I intend to write to the supermarket chain to get to the bottom of this affair.
In other news, an elderly gent was told to remove his trilby in a city-centre pub, in Hereford.
The BBC seem to want to satirize this, and the news that Arnold Scwarzenegger shouldn't be riding a motorbike. The front page of their news site today appears to show Arnie in a fetching hat himself. Just take a look:
