They call it a compliment
I was just in Shaws supermarket, here in Boston, USA buying some snacks and beers for yet another night in the hotel, with my head under the bonnet of podcast.com, playing with OPML and RSS (to the POWER of USERS) (ahh yes – thrills on a Friday night, eh?) and I was actually asked for ID to prove I was old enough to buy alcohol!!!
I have not been asked for ID since well before i was 18 (which is the age of ‘alconsent’ in the UK). I was regularly the one who had to go into the Off Licence to buy the booze when we were at school. Even then I was rarely checked, even though I was well underage at the time.
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!! Is my ever greying hair and grey-flecked beard not proof enough that I’m over 21??? Jeeeezuuuuuzz!!!!!!
