Retired husband at Tesco Extra: based allegedly on a true story.
Dear Mrs. Marsh,
Over the past six months, your husband, Mr Joseph Marsh has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this type of behaviour and have considered banning your entire family from shopping in any of our stores nationwide.
We have documented all incidents on our video surveillance equipment. Three of our workers are attending counselling from the trouble your husband has caused.
All complaints against Mr Marsh have been compiled and are listed below:
