Currently all major Supermarkets, and major shopping chains are asking for ID for the purchase of alcohol and other age limited products, for anyone who looks under 25. Most places will accept forces ID as proof of my age, however, certain Supermarket chains (the big three) do not accept this. Normally I would have all sorts of ID on me, but for once I only had my mugshot on my forces ID and a crisp Â£10 on me to purchase some smokes. Tesco lady asks politly for proof of age...... I show her forces ID...... reply comes back. "Oh we dont take those!!" Slight moment of rage due to nicotine deprivation, and lack of sleep, I stormed off to local Qwickie Mart for said smokes, who serve me. Im no rouge, I am a father and have served for 7 years now, yet my forces ID is not good enough for a major supermarket chain. Am I the only person this has happened to, or am i one of many unlucky souls?
