    I clearly look 18 and i go in to by a scratch card and i get id'ed but worst of all they refused my id and decided not to sell it to me. A hour later i go in and they are selling them to people who look about 5.

    ....so you're not 18?

    lesson learnt: saved £1 from not buying scratchcard.

    Many places have an over 21 policy which is crazy saying it's only 16 to buy lottery. I serve lottery and I sometimes ask for id and they say they are 18 or over, just take it as a compliment.

    What ID did you use? There must be reason why they didn't accept.

    Many shops now adopt a "Think 25" policy as opposed to a "Think 21".

    i am almost 19 The id i used was my drivers licesnse

    I still get ID'd for the lottery. I'm 23.

    weird, why wouldn't they accept it?

    (i barely ever get id'd for anything anymore, i'm 23)

    At my local shop you get asked for id for buying FHM

    Something similar happened to me at ASDA a few months back, I went to get a scratchcard & got refused I'm 21 by the way, so I asked my dad to get it as I didn't have any I.D with me then they refused to serve him also because he was with me! :w00t:

    A lot of this stems from the alcohol laws, which the police and trading standards are clamping down on in a hard way, hence the 'think 25' policies now in place. The problem is, if they are caught serving someone under age, that person is fined and cautioned, the company receive a fine, and they could also have their licence revoked. Where I work, if you are caught no ID'ing someone who clearly looks under age (of 25) = immediate dismal.

    Basically, you want to buy age restricted products, have the correct id. No idea why they refused your driving licence though.

    My fiancee got id'ed for buying gardening shears from Homebase.

    She's 29.

    I was Id'd for buying some scissors in Wilkos a few months ago and I am 27 and the girl looked about 17
    Was also ID'd for some screwdrivers in Poundland but the lady was in her 50's so I can understand that
