Shop Staff Refuses To Sell Whisky To Great-Grandmother; Couldn't Prove She Was Over 18!

DAILYMAIL.COM - 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, who is also a mother-of-two, 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.

"I can understand shops being strict with all the youngsters buying booze but surely there's a difference between a 92-year-old and someone of 18.

"I ended up storming out in indignation.  It is just ridiculous to ask someone of my age to prove they are an adult, I find it offensive.

"I have never been asked for ID before in my life but then I turned 18 in 1937."

Diane was on her my home from a check-up with her doctor when she went to buy a bottle of whisky for her son from the One Stop Shop in Harlow. Click here to read more
