One Direction Members Banned From Slot Machines
Being the most popular boy band on the globe did not help members of One Direction from being thrown out of a motor service shop while attempting to play slot machines. Members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne were barred from playing the slots after failing to provide identification proving they were over 18. What makes this story even funnier is that the famous lads were not recognized by security at the WH Smith motorway service shop. A member of the One direction entourage was even quoted as saying to the woman security guard,” Don’t you know who they are?”
The 29 year old security guard Ann Fuller was working her job when the boy band stopped at the service shop on their way to Glasgow. Two of the members Liam and Louis decided to have a flutter on the pokies while other members decided to have a 2am snack. Ann the security guard was totally unaware that all of the band members were of legal betting age and were fully entitled to play the slots. She was quoted as saying,” I’d heard of One Direction but only found out it was them when a colleague later said, ‘somebody’s thrown out the most popular boy band in the world’.”
After not having ID readily at hand the two members Liam, 19 and Louis,21 had to return to their bus. One thing is certain in that Ann Fuller will have a great story to tell her kids in a couple of years. How many people can claim to have thrown out members of the world’s most popular boy band without even knowing who they were?
