OK, so I was driving back from my other halfs this morning and needed to stop to pick up some smokes (yes I know, filthy habit etc etc). I pulled into a garage and popped into the shop and placed my order only to be asked for I.D. I was somewhat shocked by this so informed the lady that I am in fact 28 years old and that today is actually my 28th birthday (happy birthday to me).She told me that I needed to prove that I was over 25 to buy some fags and I needed to give her some I.D so I told her the legal age to buy them is actually 18 and not 25. She still refused to serve me and kept asking for I.D so I told her that I have a credit card and a debit card on me with my name on but no other I.D. She then told me that these werent good enough and I needed to give something with a picture on it. The only bit of I.D with a picture on it is my warrant card (Police) for work (so no age). I told her I could show her my work I.D but she said "NO, THATS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, TO BUY THEM HERE YOU NEED TO SHOW US A DRIVING LICENCE, ITS POLICY" . I then pointed at my car sat outside and told her I had driven it all the way here, on my own with no help at all and still no joy. I told her that I thought it was odd and that I was clearly 28 (dont look a day under 40) and she still wouldnt serve me. I then asked her if they only sold fags to people who drive vehicles and she said "NO, THAT WOULD JUST BE SILLY" and rolled her eyes at me!!. I couldnt be bothered to point out the fact that if someone had to produce a driving licence to buy them then there's a fair chance they need to drive a vehicle of some sort so left her to it and walked out of the shop feeling a bit confused. Over all very odd, considering I went to another petrol station a mile or so down the road and had no issues at all getting hold of a pack of cancer sticks. hurumph!.
