DS turned 18 at the end of last year. He had avoided purchasing alcohol prior to then for fear of getting caught. Just before Christmas he went to Sainsburys to buy a bottle of alcohol for a Christmas present - he was not ID'd -and a bit miffed as he thought maybe he could have got away with buying alcohol sooner . Since then he has been served in a number of bars and other supermarkets and never been asked for ID - including today in Lidl where I have seen them ask others for ID when I have been in there.
I accept that DS probably looks older than 18 but wouldn't say he looks over 25. ANyone else got a DC who is never asked?
Yep. Ds is 17 -but has a beard like Chris bonnington! I asked him to call into Tesco to get stuff for a family party and sent a second text to say "& bring an extra bottle of prosecco" as I just didn't think!! No problems. Not even a added glance he said! He's nearly-but not "old" looking I thought? Plus he's slightly built and about 5'6" so not a big hulking rugby player! I was mortified that I'd asked him to do it!! He was chuffed!!
