I am 21, from the US--I spent 5 month in Northern Ireland and I did NOT GET CARDED once when I bought alcohol. (Neither in a bar nor in a grocery store)

I know some 30 year olds that look quite youthful and can see why they are carded. It is ridiculous to ask anyone over 40 for ID. When did people lose common sense? If I am carded, I will just take my business elsewhere, screw them.

you can just go off of looks, this one 11 year old i saw on the tyra banks show, the majority of the audience thought she was 18, though she looked like 23 to me

I'm undecided about this one, actually. On the one hand the store has an obligation, according to policy, to ask everyone to produce ID. According to the reply from headquarters, this is because clerks cannot be trusted to accurately assess the age of some people based solely off appearance. Okay. Clerks can`t be trusted to think accurately for themselves (a given), so the company needs to compensate in accordance with law. Okay. The result is that absolutely anyone must provide ID because if the policy is not followed 100%, it`s a null policy. Okay.

On the other hand, I agree with the man that society is becoming more and more informal, regulated, bureaucratic, and cold. The guy is obviously over 21 and even though the policy requires one to ask, at least the clerk can agree with the customer that it was ridiculous in his (customer`s) case or make some allusion in the process. Such as, "I am required to ask, sir, but..."
