    exactly, but
    a. they missed out on a sale
    b. its not going to stop you doing the diet

    Snooty shop assistants really get my goat! i was once in a chemist buying calpol for my daughter who was teething, and they refused to sell it to me, yet a druggie walked in whilst i was protesting, sat down and was handed his methadone within 10 seconds :rolleyes:.

    it just drives me nuts who are they to tel us what we can and cant have, my daughter used to work in a chemist and she had to go on a training course where she was told if one of the druggies who use the chemist she wored in need their methadone but they had been arested or some thing that a memeber of staff must take it to them at once , and in the shop even if there was a que they must be seen first, the course was run by social services, my daughter walked out

    I've had probllems before at Boots trying to buy ketostix, told they don't advocate 'Atkins style diets etc' . I wish they would explain to me then why they sell Atkins bars on their very own shelves :mad::mad::mad::sigh:

    They have never asked me why I want them. If they did then I would just say for diabetes. Shouldn't be anything to do with them why you want them!

    Diet:
    Was Cambridge, now maintaining
    My friend is a pharmacist for Boots, and she told me that they are supposed to sell ketostix to dieters without question.

    They did used to have to do the 20 questions, but it was decided that since they sell Atkins products, it didn't make sense to disapprove of selling the stix.

    Everyone used to have a problem getting the stix from Boots, but I haven't heard of it happening for ages now.

    Guess the memo never got to your part of the country :D
