    Nosy or By law?

    Just been to Tesco and was asked for ID for buying a bottle of lambrusco! Funny thing is I was 29 yesterday!!!!! The women then went on to ask why I was buying the bottle!!!!!! I know they needed to check if I was buying it for someone else, but the woman came across as very rude and NOSY! What is the law about asking? Doesn't this sound wrong??

    sounds perfectly fine to me, although if she was rude then she could have asked nicer

    It was the wording of WHY are you buying this?

    I work at Tesco and they are very strict about alcohol sales, you must look 25 to buy alcohol... if you dont look 25 then you must have valid ID but we arent told to ask why you're buying it lol....she must've been being nosey!

    probably trying to advise you that if it was for someone else that it tastes like cats pi**
    or you gotta be an alcoholic or underage to drink it

    Yeh my partners brother got asked a few weeks back,he's 30. Tesco is about 2 miles from him and he was getting a taxi back and wanted to stock up on a fair few crates of beer on offer and got refused,he no I.D.He's not bothered to go up if he couldn't got the beer,so because of that,he finds it more convient shopping at places like Spar and local Off Licence and its dear!

    Lambrusco? Yeah, alright.
    When someone buys copious amounts of White Ace cider, the retailer is obliged to question the customer.

    Im 32 and was refused cigarettes in Morrisons as I didnt have any ID,I laughed at the woman and said well I'm off in store now to buy alcohol,the woman said well you might not get it,then I was refused at checkout, had to go home and tell the OH that I couldn't get his cigs or beers,had to go back with ID,how funnny I couldn't believe it,always take it with me now.

    oh my lawdy dee, well as i say to my daughter its something to be very proud of in this day and age :thumbsup:

    I always get asked for ID

    and they are completly with in their rights to ask why you are buying it, as kids send in adults to buy them booze, Tesco can be done if that is the case, as with underage people buying drink. The fines are stupid, and I don't blame them for asking.

    I'm 24 ( well will be a week today) and keep on getting asked for ID everywhere I go, as I only look 17, ahwell when I am older I will still look young woo hoo, got to love genetics, lol

    silly woman needed better training.

    Things like that annoy me. I realise that the cashier has been told by her manager to do that. But even she could exercise some degree of common sense. If I was with someone and had time I would be tempted to go back to alcohol section load up trolley completely with alcohol. Go back to same checkout and load it all onto belt. When asked the question change your mind about buying it and walk away. Leaving the operator to sort that one out.

    Well I probably wouldnt. But thats how these pedantic unquestioning people make me feel.

    I'd never have thought of that lol

    What a great idea!!

    Better still you could go to the fish counter have it all weighed up and in separate bags and then just leave the trolley in the canned goods aisle and hope it starts to get stinky lol

    The women then went on to ask why I was buying the bottle!!!!!!
