A British market is apologizing to a woman after she was carded for trying to buy a packet of teaspoons.

The Daily Mail reports that a Tesco employee in Evesham, Worcestershire asked Emma Sheppard, 21, to show her ID as she was checking out with a packet of five teaspoons on Monday. Tesco recently implemented a “Think 25” campaign, which asks customers to show their ID when buying certain items if they look under 25.

“When the assistant asked me for ID, I thought [my husband] John had sneakily put some booze in the trolley, but then when she held up a pack of spoons, we looked at her like she was an idiot,” Sheppard said.
