Need to be 21 to buy booze now...

#1
An 87-year-old man was asked to prove he was over 21 when he tried to buy a bottle of sherry in a York supermarket.
While the story is a bit funny - here - since when do you have to be 21 to buy alcahol?

Most supermarkets now have a policy "If you're lucky enough to look under 21 then you will be asked for ID". I find it hard to believe though that an 87 year old could be mistaken for being under 21. Maybe the cashiers guide dog was in a bad mood.

Since you've needed to spell it correctly!!

Since most of the little anti social knobbers started playing the cnut used to get a carryout and sit out the way with it caused no harm and done no damage unlike the little scroates of today.

Not long ago a friend and I went to purchase alcohol from a particular supermarket (God knows why we chose this one). Said friend did not have any identification on him, which is entirely his own fault. He was asked for identification based on his 'looking under 31'. I thought asking for proof of age of people under 31 was a little odd, but an 87 year old man being required to do so is just ridiculous.

More likely the person on the till was a spotty 18 yr old 'yoof' who didn't have the fekkin comon sense he/she was born with. Can't count to ten, but could tell you the life history of everyone on big brother.

I weep for the future. The wazzocks at Mllarrisons actually confirmed that this wasn't a mistake it was their policy! I've seen some morons working in supermarkets but the group management too?
