So i just got back from town after being out all day and I thought I'd try my luck at buying some booze for tonight. So I went into One Stop and noticed they have signs everywhere 'If You Look Under 21, don't be offended if we ask you for ID' etc etc.

Anyway, I'm only 16, I look a bit older but I certainly don't look 21. I went up to the counter and asked for a pack fo 10 Lambert & Butler (they also have the same sign by the fags but I never get ID'd for fags), the guy serves me. I then go over to the alchohol section, pick up a bottle of vodka, proceed to the counter expecting them to ID me for it. No questions asked, I handed over the money and walked out with a bottle of Vodka & 10 fags.

It just made me think, this new policy in the UK about coming down hard on places serving alchohol to kids and such, and how binge drinking is going to be cut down. I just couldn't believe how easy it was to get served for alchohol in a mainstream shop like that. So much for tougher laws...

Anyone else noticed how easy it is to get served without any form of [fake] ID?

Since I've turned 18, I've been asked for ID once - By someone probably younger than me at the Co-Op... She then spent a few minutes filling in a logbook to say she'd IDed someone - That was the part that annoyed me about the experience.

Once when I was 17 I was buying booze, the guy said
"have you got ID?"
and I said "erm... no" but I had my wallet open at the time, so he says
"I can see one."
so in the end I show it to him and he says "okay." and sells me the alcohol.


BUT then at other times, once I was in Sainsburys buying a crate and the guy said "Are you 21?"
I was like ".... no."
(I'm 19 now)


(To clarify, the drinking age is 18 for anyone not in the UK)

Crazy man. Where I live everyone underage goes to visit "Uncle Charlie"
Charlie comes up to you and gives you a lil speech when you meet him, which goes like "Why hello there. Folks around here call me Uncle Charlie, now I ain't gonna hurt you, steal from you or mess you up, I'm just sayin' if you send some love my way I got what you need."
Give him the cash and he will get all the booze you need, and help put it in your car, just gotta give him a friendly tip is all. Great guy.

Edit: He is some crack head who sits around the liquor store tryin' to scrape in some extra cash from the kids.

As you found out, buying alcohol is easy for a teen because if they wanna drink, they'll go in and ask. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. But even if they dont get served they'll just ask someone walking by. That works because i used to do it. lol

I live in Michigan and I havent not been asked for id. Even my friend who was a cashier at the time asked me for idea, but he still sold it to me anyways.

I love finally being able to legally buy alcohol (i turned 18 not so long ago but still look pretty young) people are constantly still ID-ing me even though they've seen my drivers license multiple times, there's this one woman who works in a corner shop at the top of my friends street who always gives dirty looks when i buy drink, although this may be because i always order "a bottle of vodka and a 50p mix up"

Hey,
does anyone else smell the rape?
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside

This I suppose isn't as drastic as the alcohol but me and my friend walked into a hardward store to get an extension cord and at the counter my friend James (who is 15) goes "Hey man, I want a lighter, I don't have any ID, but I'm only 15". In Michigan you have to be 18 to buy lighters, but not matches oddly. The guy at the counter goes "Go ahead, I'm no cop and I'm not going to give you the don't smoke or do drugs talk, you'll find that out in about 5 minutes for yourself." This guy thinks we're two 15 year olds about to go smoke or get high with this lighter and he sells it too us anyway. It was funnier at the time.

Buying alcohol is pretty easy, but then again, I am 18... so...


18 here also..but in the US. Probably not as easy for me as it is for you.

They should just lower the drinking age to 18..21 is ridiculous. Nobody (who wants to drink) follows it anyway.

"Hey mom, will you go buy me some alcohol from the store?"
"Yeah sure, what do you want?"

I'm 17 now and i've noticed it get easier over the past year. I've bought alcohol with my real driving license.. which says im 17. No one really looks hard at the date, just as long as you have an ID
#24
In Canada it's getting ridiculous with cigarettes.

They have to be locked up. Not behind glass but behind metal, so that the packages can not be seen. It's mandatory to ask for your driver's license regardless of how old you look and if you don't drive you're SOL. I don't smoke but I've been waiting in line when 60 year-old men were asked for their license and the clerk punches the license number into their computer. It's insane.

I think it's time to say enough is enough to our government. It doesn't stop kids from smoking or getting cigarettes. When I was a teenager and I smoked (quit 10 years ago) I'd just get sympathetic adults to buy them for me. All these BS laws do is just punish innocent adults who have the right to poison their bodies if they want to.

I normally just get an older friend/my bro to get me fags n booze, theres a guy i know thats my age, has a pretty full beard, quite big and stocky and can get served fags n booze at the post office/petrol station.

Before the age for fags went up i could pretty easily get served at my local shop (i was 15), now theyre a bit stricter, but theres a thrift shop i can pick up skins, lighters, pipes, bongs whatever i want really apart from actual baccy, mainly because the guys a big pot head and just cracks jokes about us going to smoke weed around the back of the shop and doesnt care, pretty cool guy.

I iwsh i could get served fags n booze, seriously. =(

I was at work today, and I work in a harbor for an island based corperation. The people who live and work on the island only go to the mainland once, maybe twice a week.

We went to get gas for the Crown Vic which belonged to one of the employee's brother, and the boat captain asked for "Coffee milk and Cupcakes" once at the gas station, everyone went in to get what they needed, and one of the girls was buying beer. I asked her if she had gotten the captain's stuff she said yes. But the woman at the counter asked to see my ID. I'm 17, I don't have a driver's license or any other form of ID on me, so the girl buying the beer wasn't allowed to get it because she could have been "Soliciting Alcohol to a Minor". I tried to explaion to the lady but she wasn't listening.

I should have left a match at the fuel pump.

I've been ID'd more since I've been legally allowed to buy alcohol than when I was under age. Challenge 21 is stupid. It should be Challenge 18 since that's the legal drinking age in the UK. I've heard of people being ID'd because they didn't look 25 when trying to buy booze. Why would they need to be 25 if the legal age is 18? The world's gone mad. People in the UK on average drink less now than they ever have, even during WW2 people drank more when rationing was enforced. Binge drinking and under-age drinking is a problem but this Challenge 21 policy is just a load of PC bull**** that's spewed out by the government in order to justify more taxation on alcohol and to spread fear about how much society has degenerated.

since i turned 19 i have not been id'd once at any liquor stores or anything...and that's after a $600 credit card bill that was ALL ALCOHOL

I had to do that when I worked for the Co-op, and it annoyed the **** out of me too. It's to cover the cashier though, or something.

In the US there are little ghetto ass drive through places where, if you have a car, you can get anything pretty much. I am 16, but most people think that I'm 12 or 13 and I have never been carded for alcohol or tobacco lol.

Eh, I could buy alcohol at 13.

Problem is that no one's going to tail up who's selling what, and no one's going to be able to stop sellers discretion everywhere.
