Barmy Britain
« on: October 30, 2011, 09:49:14 PM »
In Britain there is a policy of you need to look 25+ before you can buy alcohol, the 25+ bit was set so that there was margin for the legal age of 18. Here comes the barmy bit.

An off-licence refused to sell alcohol to a woman of 92 because she could not prove she was over 18.
Great-grandmother Diane Taylor wanted to buy a bottle of whisky for her son but was asked for photo ID.
She said It seemed so stupid I thought the cashier was complimenting me, But then I realised that she was being serious so I pulled out my bus pass, my blood donor's card but it was no good.
She said she wanted proof of age. I was so taken aback I didn't know what to do.
She added: No one can convince me I look under 25 I'd only take 78 at a push.
A One Stop Shop spokesman apologised but said staff cannot sell alcohol without seeing proof of age.
Ms Taylor, of Harlow, Essex, eventually bought her booze from another shop.
She added: “I am 101% with them for checking young people but carrying it to that length is just ridiculous.”

I would like to point out that in Britain you have to be 61 years of age to get a bus pass.

No she should not have shown her boobs! If she would have tripped over one of them the store would have been liable! It is at best a no win situation! This is what happens when you leave even a small amount of room for a personal interpretation of something. Utterly ridiculous! It is why I don't have any hair left my employees took it all!
Don't lick the windows! You might enjoy it!
