    They should sell them in Tesco with all the other medication. Otherwise go to a chemist, Boots etc

    As much as a good idea as it sounds, don't do it. I was tempted once but you should realise that it can go horribly wrong. Laxitives could take away that person's ability to empty their bowels themselves and become dependant on it. It's not nearly as safe as the moveis make it out to be...

    Superdrug/Boots anywhere like that really.

    I used to get women coming in buying packets of laxatives who were painfully thin and clearly in the middle of an eating disorder, using laxatives to lose/maintain their unhealthy, scarily thin frames. I hated hated HATED serving them - I wish there were restrictions on laxatives like there are for paracetamol.

    Well as there isn't much I can do to stop you except ask you for restraint, just try to have mercy on this poor sod.

    Its his own fault whether the prank works on not depends on whether he will take a bite at the freshly baked Cake THAT ISNT HIS. If he does then he should pay ****ing bum! I'm in so much rage right now. Cant wait for tomorrow cant even fckin sleep.

    *******s. If it happens once, no matter how bad, they will be fine. It's not heroin.

    Surely you could have refused to? You can refuse service to anyone, and you don't need a reason.

    That would only happen with very regular use.

    I'd be more worried about risk of overdose risk :/

    Giving a normal healthy person a dose of a laxative wouldn't give them diarrhoea... it would just make it a bit softer than usual.
    To get a "revenge" effect you would have to go O.T.T and that can just lead to problems.

    If you want to teach him a lesson for eating your food do something else. Like... pee in the orange juice or put a mouse trap in a bag of crisps... something juvenile like that.

    Don't mess with medication :/

    You actually can refuse to sell them laxatives, many of my eating disordered friends have been refused.

    To be fair, laxatives get abused by women who do not appear very underweight also, which does not take away from the danger of using them. As in, laxative abuse KILLS thousands of women in their late teens/early twenties every year.
    I reckon they should be prescribed.

    You've challenged him, but he's thrown that challenge straight back in your face. Expect it to escalate if you start a tit-for-tat war. Unless there is some way your can effectively deny him access to your property then I can see no other outcome.

    If it were me, I'd be leaving tasty pieces of chocolate cake, except replacing the chocolate fondant with something else. Maybe putting some 'special' cheese on a pizza, or topping up my bottle of milk. Tinned fish is very susceptible to Botulism if the tin becomes damaged and the contents left exposed to air for a prolonged period. Chicken if cooked but whilst still hot placed straight into a chilled environment can go rancid on the inside.

    I just wouldn't know what to say, I don't think I could go "Sorry, you're a customer and I don't know you, but I think you have an eating disorder so I'm not going sell you these."
    Another cashier once was hesitant and stuff when she was serving a customer like this at the customer got really pissed off and started shouting and the manager told the cashier off for "causing trouble" as it's not a restricted product.

    It only happened a handfulof times but I just remember them - I've quit working there anyway.

    I totally agree, they should definitely be prescribed or AT LEAST avaliable to purchase only at a pharmacy.
