The woman who has spent 10yrs selling poppies every November was reprimanded by the management there for eating a bag of crisps she purchased from the store, she was told that ' it looked unprofessional and neither eating nor drinking was permitted on their shop floor. The middle aged woman who does not work for Tesco was spending a week of her annual leave selling poppies for The Royal British Legion, as she has previously sold poppies at the same store for 5yrs she was unaware of this. Tesco were unrepentant at store level and she was made to feel humiliated and left the store in tears.
