No ID, no liquor sale to woman, 92

HARLOW, England, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- A 92-year-old British woman said she was "taken aback" when a store clerk refused to sell her alcohol because she didn't have her ID card.

Diane Taylor, a Harlow, England, great-grandmother, said she stopped at the local One Stop Shop to buy a bottle of whiskey for her son and was asked to produce her photo ID, The Mirror reported Monday.

"It seemed so stupid I thought the cashier was complimenting me," Taylor said. "But then I realized that she was being serious so I pulled out my bus pass, my blood donor's card but it was no good. She said she wanted proof of age. I was so taken aback I didn't know what to do."

"I am 101 percent with them for checking young people but carrying it to that length is just ridiculous," she said. "No one can convince me I look under 25 -- I'd only take 78 at a push."

A spokesman for the store apologized for the inconvenience but said store policy requires proof of age to purchase alcohol.
