Got denied alcohol because I smelled like I was drunk. I hadn't had a drink all week!

Meijer is always good for that. Never had a problem anywhere else though.


and yes it drives me crazy when they ask for everyone's id while in line. whenever I buy now, I go alone.

If the sales person has reasonable suspicion to believe you will be sharing, giving, providing, whatever substance/item to the person in line with you, they by law are supposed to ID them to make sure they are of age as well. Most of the time, places will only ID the person purchasing the items since the person in line with them is most likely old enough (or they are an idiot otherwise).

Same holds true if I ID a kid and he doesn't have it and sends his buddy in the car up - I'm allowed to (and supposed to) refuse the sale by law. Even if they send their parents up.

Sucks, but it's the law. My Job is more important than you getting your nicotine fix. And 99% of companies make you sign a statement saying you'll uphold this or YOU are responsible for any fines they face and can also be fired for not upholding it. Shit, we're supposed to ID anyone who looks under 29 or we can get busted by the state. But 99% of the time you can tell if you are being tested since the people the state hire don't buy goods. So if they have money in hand, you're probably good.

Isn't your girl like 17? If so that could be why.

So if your girlfriend picked up a pack of gum to purchase, doesn't that make her a totally separate customer? If a parent is shopping with their young adult child, does that disqualify them from purchasing alcohol? I would have made a big enough stink that they would have sold to HER just to get me out of there. It shouldn't matter to them the reason you are purchasing it, their only job is to make sure that the person that is paying is of age. If you told the cashier in line that your intentions were to give each of your underage cousins a can wrapped with a bow would they follow you home for Christmas and ID each of your family members?

If CVS ever pulled that shit on me, they would never seen another one of my dollars again.

Employees can't help the law, only abide it for fear of loosing their job and getting fined.

If it's evident enough the purchaser will be sharing the item, we're supposed to card the other person as well. So, if it was fairly evident they were together, it's pretty safe to presume he was going to share with her. Therefore, she should be carded as well.

What if she drank it and got in a car accident and killed somebody? They are going to hunt down and figure out how she got a hold of it if she was underage (and even of age probably) and it would fall into the fault of the store and employee.

I always go in alone to buy alcohol if one of the people with me is either underage or doesn't have photo ID on them. If they really need to buy something we pretend to not know each other and don't socialize. I was under the impression that all stores do that. At least that is what I was taught.

Or perhaps the individual that SERVED THE MINOR would be liable.

Somebody will link it to who sold it and go after them as well for selling it without following the proper procedures. This is America after all.

I mean damn, they'd probably try to sue the car maker and the brewery as well!

I know many stores have policies about this sort of thing. had my nephew with me, who was 19 or 20 at the time, stopped at the store to get a few things, and grabbed a 6 pack as well...wouldnt sell to me because he was with me...we walked out, I walked back in alone, and bought it...simple enough to follow the stores policy..

hell, I sent him to Walmart one night when he was about 16 or 17 to get some RTV gasket sealant, and they wouldnt sell that to him because he wasnt 18...I guess you cant really blame the store for making these policies after other stores have been sued and lost cases and lots of money for things just like this. Blame the idiots that file ridiculous lawsuits after creating thier own problems.

As the manager of a Gas Station, I see this shit all the time. People need to sit back and put themself in the position of the person behind the counter/window before they get all bent about something like this.
