    I can see you'll grow up to a first class troll!

    That's really funny.......I got asked for I.D.in 2 different Tesco stores in the last few weeks..........I'm 29!! Maybe they're stamping down on it or something:?
    Mind u, made my day:-D

    I am 33 and I got asked, I asked if she was having a laugh and that I was 33, if I was going to lie I wouldn't say 33 and she went bright red and served me! Now if I intend to buy alcohol I have my photo ID with me!

    yes but in some stores such as our local asda i think u have to be 25 to buy alcohol and of course most places its just 18

    and of course if they have to guess if someone is over 25 when actually they're 26 thats harder than if you're 26 and they're trying to judge if you're over 18....

    I was asked for id in asda a few months ago at age 29 - i just laughed it off and told them my age and i think she was too embarrased to ask again.

    I also answered the door to a saleman the other day and he asked if my mum or dad were in lol

    I'm 26 I get asked all the time, I'm not embarrassed, I take it as a compliment, If I look under age now imagine how young I'll look when I'm 60...!!!

    thats what gets me it is still 18 in asda but you have to look 25 and if you dont you have to provide id to prove you are 18 or over.

    lol i get asked if my dad is here all the time its easy to just say no it gets rid of them quick.

    Asda do it to me.

    I'm 24, shop in there regularly with my 3 kids but when I try to buy alcohol I get ID'd.

    I don't know why, but I had you down as a 35-40 year old greyparrot. Maybe because u have kids and a parrot! lol

    But a 26 year-old who looks younger than her age? Lucky you. If I was 26 again, the things I could do... :-(

    i got asked for id to buy some beer a few years ago, i was 29, made my day:)

    done that one in town when i was 23 and they didnt want to let me in the night club but really doesnt matter about stretch marks after all theres loads under 18 having babies so i still didnt get in and i had my mum with me telling them that i was 23 what annoyed me more than anything was my brother was in that club and he was only 18.

    I remember being asked my birthdate by the bouncer on the door of one club when I was about 15 and panicing and trying to make myself 18 by adding up quickly... and instead told him I was about 3! lol

    oh they just assume you gave birth when you were ten or summin lol

    Lucky you,same thing happened to my partners brother a few weeks back,they not sell him beer at Tesco's.He was annoyed too cos was coming back by taxi which is about £5-6,wanted to get a fair bit of heavier stuff,I've told him shop online...He's 30 and got asked for I.D in there.No surprise really,my partner gets mistaken for being younger than he is,I'd never be mistaken however.

    lol - and you panicked so much you couldn't spell either! Not like you CoM (I read it as prancing at first and was totally thrown by the image!)

    The new rule comes into force on st June but they are getting ready now so some stores have started it early. If you look under 25 you must provide id...........there is also a rule in supermarkets that they will not sell alchohol to adults accompanied by a teenager!!! There have been many cases in the papers lately.
    I personally think this is not going to stop under age drinking or sort out the problems, if anything it will probably make things worse, look at prohibition.


    I was most annoyed some years ago when turned away for not being able to porduce ID (I wwas nearly 18) as I had been going there for about three years!!

    Oh I spell just fine but cant type for crap lol

    I'll remember the images threw you off just so I know how to win if we ever argue! I'm not above resorting to a little sensualism to get my own thoughts across :giggle:

    ( and no you're not gonna get away with picking a fight just to see lol )

    wish i could be asked for id,even when i went into pubs at 15 never asked:-(:-(

    And did you give her guide dog a biscuit?
