Look under 25?

Recommended Posts

I've seen these signs in most shops saying you got to look over 25 to buy drink but the law is still 18. Usual confusing double speak under_25_2.jpg

Remember when I worked behind a bar, the police asked me to make sure the staff were ID'ing anyone who looked under the age of 30.

don't know how you can find it confusing tbhif you look under 25, there is a POSSIBILITY you could get asked for IDi'm 21 and for a good year or so, any shop I go into has never asked me for ID

Putting more pressure on shop staff innit, the under 21 one obviously wasn't working. Thing is in my workplace we have one that says "under 21" but we all pretty much just check if they look 18 or not - this is to do with DVDs/Games however, not alcohol

There are several reasons, two being so that staff feel more comfortable asking for ID and customers really can't argue when asked.

What I find confusing is that the law is 18 but if you look under 25 you got to show i.d.Why not stick to what the law is and not do some silly Challenge 25 initiativeWill this start appying to other things like 18 films?

I dont see the problem.Certain countries ive been you cant buy alcohol / enter a nightclub without IDThe real problems in the UK are:- kids standing outside shops asking people to go in and buy them booze (so easy to do, and the shops dont care)- people getting served in bars/clubs when they are already intoxicated (apparently this is actually illegal but not enforced)

well its like a bigger margain for errorits harder for a 17 year old to pass for 25, hence if you id everyone who looks under 25 you are more likely to catch all the under 18s.
