Fight Against Maturity

He should have been flattered…

A balding 49-year-old was asked for proof of his age when he bought a bag of party poppers at Tesco.

Staff told postman Maurice Harris he had to prove he was over 18 as the £1.99 bag of 50 poppers were classed as explosives.

He was finally sold them when a security guard he knew at the store in Bedworth, Warwicks, vouched for him, reports The Sun.

Mr Harris said: “I’m 50 next month but I look older. I’ve hardly got a hair on my head.” Tesco has apologised.

I, on the other hand, was asked if I was eligible for a senior discount for the first time when I was about 40. I just put my hand out and took it.
