Teenagers Pretend Superglue Is Hand Sanitiser And Offer It To Shoppers
Kids have been reportedly offering free 'hand sanitiser' to shoppers outside a supermarket but they've actually been filling the bottles with superglue.
Partaking in some old-fashioned but also potentially dangerous pranking, the kids nearly caught one woman out, but she noticed something wasn't quite right.
When they approached Kathy Smith, who was shopping in Morrison's in Bradford, she clocked something was amiss when the kids couldn't keep a straight face.
One of the lads asked her if she wanted a 'free pump', but Kathy realised that he was grinning from ear to ear, 'eagerly waiting' for her to put out her hand.
Speaking to YorkshireLive, Kathy said: "The lad approached me showing me the bottle of 'sanitiser' asking if I would like a free pump.
"He was eagerly waiting for me to hold my hand out with a massive smile on his face.
"They all started to laugh. I asked, 'what's in the bottle?' He said, 'sanitiser' while laughing.
"I heard one of the lads laughing and he said: 'F*****g superglue'.
"They all walked off laughing when I said, 'I'll pass thanks'."
The group of teenage boys were standing outside Morrison's at Five Lane Ends on Monday evening (18 January).
They were reportedly approaching shoppers, taking turns to offer them squirts from the hand sanitiser bottle.

Kathy said she had almost accepted their offer and doesn't have any doubts the boy with the bottle would have squirted it over her hands if she'd held them out. She only stopped because one of them let out a laugh.
She added: "I'd have been in Bradford Royal Infirmary all night."
A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Police told LADbible they have not received any reports of the incident. Morrisons has also indicated it was not made aware of the antisocial behaviour.
Chief executive David Potts said only those with medical exemptions will be allowed to shop without a mask from 11 January.
He said: "Those who are offered a face covering and decline to wear one won't be allowed to shop at Morrisons unless they are medically exempt.
"Our store colleagues are working hard to feed you and your family, please be kind."
Matt Hancock said he 'applauds' the move at a Downing Street briefing.
Discussing whether rules might be tightened, he added: "We keep these things under review and we have demonstrated that we're willing to tighten the rules if they need to be tightened.
"But the thing that really matters right here, right now is that everybody follows the rules as they are today.
"And everybody can play their part in doing that. I want to see all parts of society playing their part in this."
