This is England, don't kid yourself in can happen anywhere. My wife of 74years had the same thing happen to her in Canberra, Australia recently, lack of respect is everywhere.
A TIPPLE REFUSED FOR THIS YOUNG 92year old
PROOF OF AGE DEMANDED!
A great-grandmother blasted shop staff today after they refused to sell her alcohol at the age of 92, because she had no ID to prove she was over 18.
Diane Taylor was stunned to be asked for proof of age when she asked for a bottle of whisky from her local One Stop Shop in Harlow, Essex.
The great-grandmother-of-three produced her over-60s bus pass, an OAP card and even her pacemaker certificate, but was still turned away because she could not provide a passport or driving licence.
It was the first time that the pensioner, who was born in 1919 turned 18 in 1937, has ever been asked to show ID when buying alcohol.
Diane said it demonstrated a "ridiculous" and "offensive" lack of common sense.
She said: "I asked the girl behind the counter to repeat herself three times, I just couldn't believe what I was hearing, I thought it was a joke.
