Ok, I'll re-phrase it:
"Since the shop cannot serve to anybody who appears to be under-age, and
can lose its license if it does serve to somebody who is under-age,
etc.."

A spoiled brat? You really are a ****ing nasty little arse who doesn't
know what he's talking about aren't you?


Well, why would she not produce ID? The shop had every right to ask her
for it, and as mentioned elsewhere, could lose its license if it served
alcohol to somebody who was under age.
So what was her problem? Why did she think that she was above all that?

Because she and I were regular customers. We had been buying all our
groceries and booze there for over a year because it was walking
distance. No one had asked for ID before.

and that might be because the Licencing Authority had changed its rules.
They did with us a few years ago. Not the shop's fault.

It's the kind of sloppy retail stroppiness that leads to OAPs being asked to
prove their age.

In that case, both my brother and I started a bit early. In fact, if the "5"
is 5 _months_ my brother might have been a bit 'advanced'!


Mmmmm .... gripe water.


No. Off-licence in the '50s, barrels with taps, turn on tap and lay
underneath. He did that before he could walk. The rather sweet elderberry
wine was bad - a lot of it went on the floor (turning the tap off was a bit
beyond him) and mum spent ages trying to get rid of the stickiness on the
floor.

The central problem is to do with the female mind. If you are in a
position where you have to make a guess at a woman's age, you have a
serious problem. Too old and she'll kill you. Too young and she'll kill
you. They aren't rational creatures you know. Never pretend that they are.

A self-confident person with a sense of humour would have made a joke of
it. Probably used it to make the shopkeeper squirm. But there's never
any sense in falling out with a convenient source of booze.
