What is it with superstores and our Weller girls, we’ve already had one of them refused cutlery at Argos because they didn’t look over 25 now it’s the turn of ASDA to be judgmental.
Our 29-year-old together with ‘Mrs W’ went to ASDA to do the ‘weekly shop’, why do women call it the weekly shop most go shopping of one sort or another every day, anyway they turn up at the checkout and start passing the stuff through the beeper then the cashier spies 4 dumpy bottles of beer.
I can’t sell you those you don’t look over 25 says the cashier but I’m 29 with 5 ‘saucepan lids’ (kids) says my girl.
Cashier now wants picture id to confirm age but like most people coming up to 30 my daughter doesn’t carry picture id like 18-year-olds tend to carry so they can get served in pubs and the like.
Mrs W, always aware that a grumbling customer queue is building up behind her says, put them in my trolley I’ll pay for them.
A good idea to end this farce you would say but no, officious cashier decides that Mrs W is going to pass the 4 dumpy bottles of beer to her 29-year-old daughter and is breaking some non-existent alcohol law.
Anyway they left without the beer leaving my daughter to buy it in Tesco down the road later on.
******A PERCY POINT OF INFORMATION******
The legal age to buy alcohol is 18 but shops do operate the ‘look 21 scheme’ to avoid ‘run ins’ with the authorities about selling to the underaged. ASDA appear to be running a ‘look 25 scheme’ whilst finding an excuse not to sell to anyone of any age seems to be the policy of ASDA cashiers.
