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..."

I find it ludicrous that people actually complain about this. They have the right to refuse anyone if they can't provide identification. Show the f*cking ID and move on. I don't care if you're 104. If they ask for ID, show it. NO BOOZE FOR YOU!
Well put.

He could have just flashed the employee his license and been done with it. What is ridiculous is that he refused too, making a big deal about absolutely nothing.

Corner Stores in Quebec all have Signs that Say "People between the Ages of 18 and 26 Will be Carded"

Just say "I'm 27."

I worked at Marks & Spencer in the UK, and they too had the '21' challenge thing, where you had to ask anyone who looked at all near 21, ie if you werent sure, ASK, and the store would support you.

As for other things, if the till says "is customer 16?" or "is customer 21?" etc for blades, gunpowder, alcohol etc, you *HAVE TO ASK IT*, it doesnt matter if you can obviously judge that they're 80, it doesnt matter, it has to be asked, if you are over 21, just say so, dont make a song and dance about it! Dont blame the staff, its just store policy, and often legal requirements!

Usually most people took it fine, you'd ask an old lady if she was 21 and she's say "ooh only just!" etc, you could joke with it, but still, if you're trained to ask it, you ask it, otherwise your job can be at risk.

The old bloke needed to complain to Morrisons HQ, not the manager or the cashier.

I find this ludicrous. My 74 year old mother was actually asked to show ID when purchasing some wine. People in line chuckled. My mother left the store embarressed and insulted. We recieved a letter of apology from the stores managers after I filed a formal complaint.

You are required by most (if not all) states in the US to have ID to buy alcohol. End of story. This story is like saying "he looks over the age to drive, so why have a driver's license on him?". Show your id for anything age-related, and quit your bitching.

I work as a cashier. We don't sell alcohol but we do sell cigs. Since April there was a rule that if the customer looks under forty (40) you have to card them to buy cigs.

I had a customer to come in, it was about 10:30 pm. He was with his wife, (I'm assuming his wife). He wanted to purchase some smokes. He was probably around 20 years old. I could physically tell that. I asked to see ID. He and his wife (or girlfriend) laught and he said "what do I look under 18). I said no, but if you are under forty (40) I have to card you. Of course upon hearing that, he got rude. I simply told him, that if he wanted to talk to a manager he could. I forget what he said as he stomped out of the building but it was something alone the lines of "I'll never shop here again." That wasn't the first time I had to refuse a sale to a customer.

The store was right to ask for ID as some1 previosly said - its not fair on younger ppl.
The guy did over-react, but the manager should have showed some maturity and allowed the man to buy the alcohol because he clearly is over 21.
I don't agree with the "over 21" approach in the UK as the age to buy alcohol is 18.
I once got asked for ID in a Tesco store when I was buying groceries (i was under 18 too) (no alcohol) - because I was at a checkout which was ok to buy alcohol at (some have red Xs above them to indicate alcohol cannot be purchased at that til); it was a bit silly of the shop assistant, however she served me anyway and said I'll pretend you're with the lady behind you (who was clearly over 18)

wow, this article puts it like its an extraordinary thing... this is normal, i work at a supermarket and the cashiers have to, no matter what, its the law. the police can send in an older looking gentleman, who is over 21, and see if he can buy alchohol without an id, if he can, the store gets fined, because its the law

The manager (or clerk, even) should have explained that it's the company's policy to card all individuals buying alcohol. It would have definitely made them look better if they'd done that instead of taking the wine from him and putting it back on the shelf.

I get carded for everything from violent video games (at Toys R Us and such) to alcohol to getting into movies rated R, even though I'm 23. It's irksome, but I never bitch about it because I've been in the clerk's shoes and know what kind of trouble you can get into if you don't card someone.

'...the difficulties our staff face in being able to determine if a customer is legally old enough to buy alcohol'
Are you f***ing joking? Thats the hairiest teenager I ever saw :|
