Do you take copy of ID when you buy something?

Recommended Posts

In which case, why are you ranting on about Challenge 25? If she was obviously over 80, she would be just as likely to have been ID'd if the shop operated a Challenge 18 policy. For whatever reason, the shop didn't want to serve her. Blaming it on the Challenge 25 policies is nonsensical.

 

Please, please, please have I turned left @ sanity point & bumped into all the narrow minded thickos', obviously in your life common sense never told to you, or explained properly. Right I'm off now to have a grown up conversation, with the fairies at the bottom of our garden.

 

There is no such thing as the challenge 25 law, it is a sticker put up in a shop, never been through Parliament as an act, unlike the 18 year old & over drinking laws, laid down & followed by people with an ounce of nouse since god was in short trousers.

 

I have never come across so many stupid people that CANNOT grasp the concept of the 18 & over law, & the application of common sense, oh & in regards to our laws there are NO OTHER AGE LAWS written in relation to drinking; only by such as bloody Tesco's & the like.:loopy::loopy::rant::rant:

Minimum wage shop workers don't get paid enough to use their brains.

 

The rule is that you must SHOW a valid bus pass in order to take advantage of it - using their brains is not relevant to the argument.

You really seem unable to grasp the reason for them using challenge 25. If you serve someone under 18, even if they look older, you are still liable for a fine and possible revocation of your alcohol license. So, they challenge everyone who looks under 25, which should drastically cut down on the number of people they serve that are under 18. No-one I have seen is saying challenge 25 is a law, that is called a strawman argument.

I think the op is on about me as he was going to buy my laptop off me but they wanted to see my passport and take a copy of it for some strange reason. When I said no due to identity theft and so on they thought I was in the wrong

You do right not to share that information coming to your house should be good enough.

We actually saw the sun last week in Wales.....real BBQ weather.

Daughter popped to Morrisons for wine and came back well chuffed!

She is 32 and was challenged are you over 18.

 

Somehow the compliment pleased her more than the refusal.

She then sent hubby to fetch the wine saying "you look an old sod". lol.

 

p.s......I don't get all this bickering.

Shops can challenge anyone they think may be under age. End of.

I do see you point, with regards to people not looking their age, my son is almost 26 & has to carry ID I ensure he's got it before he goes out. Everyone has been quick to point out about not looking 25, and the point I made was about the woman of 92 who was refused a bottle of scotch.

 

Now don't tell me you'd have a problem deciding if she was over 80, let alone 18, yet the shopkeeper said no ID no sale. No if that is not pathetic. looks like I'm pants down in Fargate. PLEASE trust me it's not nice.:):)

 

There will always be idiots who do not know how to apply the Licensing Regs.

I was a little amused when a bottle of Angostura Bitters came up with "THINK 25" in the supermarket. Yes, the stuff is alcoholic, but it's undrinkable unless you dilute it a lot.

Oh, just realised its about BUYING something, not getting ID'd in a shop - No, I don't think many people demand to see ID from a seller when they buy something - Except shops like cash converters. I wouldn't just hand a copy of my ID to anyone who came to my house :hihi:

I had the same thing in the Co Op, went to buy some cans for OH last summer while he was doing a BBQ - His cousin's girlfriend (18 ) came into the shop, and got herself a bag of crisps, and we had a chat whilst in the queue. I got asked for ID, and then they asked her for hers. Why? She was only buying crisps! Well, apparently, it was clear she was with me, and I could have been buying alcohol to give to her. Ridiculous :hihi: They serve me when I'm with my 7 year old daughter though, and I imagine loads of parents with teenage children get served with alcohol every day

 

Heard loads of stories like this. It's supermarkets making up idiotic policies that have no basis in law

Yes, they are right - they are right to not serve anyone at any time for any reason, as they are perfectly allowed to do.

 

Yes and any shop displaying such moronic behaviour will rightfully lose a lot of business
