Stephen: British teen gets busted for selling squirts of hand sanitizer
Wouldn’t a “cents”-able squirt of hand sanitizer hit the spot right now? Probably, but one teenager in England got sent home from school this week after he was caught selling pumps of the product at 50 pence (about 64 U.S. cents) a pop. “The little turd has just been expelled from school for the day after been caught charging students 50p a squirt for hand sanitizer to protect themselves from the b****y coronavirus!!” mom Jenny Tompkins wrote about 13-year-old son Oliver on Facebook. Oliver reportedly purchased a container of the cleanser while waiting for the school bus; after offering some to his friends, they suggested he could charge people for it. But after trying to sell a squirt to a teacher at Dixon’s Unity Academy in Leeds, he got sent home for breaking school rules. Meanwhile, his mom added that he raked in about $11.50 in revenue. “He bought a multipack of Doritos and is saving the rest to buy a kebab later,” she said about his profits. She also said it’s been hard to discipline Oliver after his dad has told him he’s a “legend” for his moneymaking stunt.
