18 to buy a pair of gloves ???

Just got back from doing a bit of shopping but still amazed at what I heard..... a young guy had gone to the till to ask how much a pair of work gloves were, the assistant told him but then said you have to be 18 to buy those! The poor guy was astounded, he asked why and was told because they are Latex.... As it was he proved he was 18 but walked out shaking his head.
I asked what the purpose of that was and was told it was the shop rules..
Can anyone explain what that is all about?

It was the Family Bargains store,it is a part of the 99p stores group, I had never heard of any bad things you could with a pair of gloves before and just because they are latex? Can you melt them down and smoke them?? I am baffled, not difficult I know but...

Maybe kids are using them as a suffocation for thrills device or something?! You would need some really large gloves to get them over your head, but hey heard of stranger things

Then supermarkets should also make sure they dont give carrier bags away to under 18's! lol

Nah carrier bags are too thin for good suffocation lol Have you ever tried blowing up a carrier bag?
