Knifecrime Island Shoppers Do Bad Things

The levels of rudeness among British shoppers have apparently reached epidemic proportions: “A few examples from my local supermarket. Over Christmas, a punch-up broke out in a queue after one customer accused another of pushing in. A few weeks before that, the supermarket banned the sale of eggs to customers under the age of 16, because so many were buying them in bulk, going outside and then hurling them at the walls and each other. Another time, my parents, visiting from Scotland, witnessed two teenage boys chasing another around the aisles; while running at full speed, the one being chased was yelling into his mobile for reinforcements.” It’s grim!
