Health & Safety again!!!!

We need a new teapot.
The one we are currently using is a straight sided metal one which dribbles when we pour into the mug.

Fed up we went to Wikinsons this morning to replace it with one with a spout similar to the one we have in the mh.
We looked around and unable to see one asked an employee.

"We don't sell them," she said.
"Why," said we.
"Health and safety," she said, "They get hot."

Words fail me.
Came home and ordered one from Amazon!

I think the fault may just possibly be with Wilkinsons rather than the HSE.

I'm sure you are right but we couldn't be bothered to argue, just took our custom elsewhere.

I thought this was in Jokes and Trivia at first. Did you ask them if they had them in chocolate.

Nope.

Peter is probably right. It will be the EU's fault not Wilkinsons. It probably has something to do with the law against bendy bananas. Those bloody rascals in Brussels again eh!

as an avid watcher of HSE rules, words fail me..... to say this has not come from the HSE would be an understatement par excellence..... the HSE despair of the way they are accused of everything and everything else as well......

they have many staff members simply trying to disprove such false statements - obviously Wilkinsons has not been visited yet..... it all comes down to the lazy staff at Wilkinsons who cannot be bothered to find out things and take the easy route out and one that is difficult for the average person to argue with.....

It would be worth a Customer Service comment TO Wilkinsons pointing out that if their staff tell such blatant lies then the result WILL be an increase in on-line trade away from High Streets......
