British Supermarket Tesco Sells Bottle Of Wine To Girl, 7

By Robert Paul Reyes

"British supermarket chain Tesco apologized after a mother complained her 7-year-old daughter was allowed to buy a bottle of wine.

Maggie Waugh, 43, said she waited outside of the Tesco Express store in Exeter, England, while her daughter, Dani, went inside the store to buy her some `surprise` early Mother`s Day gifts and she was shocked when the girl emerged with a box of chocolates and a bottle of sparkling wine."



The sweet seven-year-old daughter didn`t buy her mother a cute Mother`s Day card or a rose, she bought her cheap wine and a box of chocolates.

Truly a daughter knows the heart of her mother, and this precocious child knows that her mom loves her some cheap wine and fattening chocolates.

It`s an outrage that a supermarket sold a bottle of wine to a 7-year-old girl, but it would have been more disturbing if the store clerk had carded the young child.

Hopefully the department store employee will receive training, and the next time that a really young girl tries to buy wine, she will pat her on the head, give her some bubblegum, and try to find her mother.
