    I'm suprised he got served at all tbh. In Scotland we have a 25 policy. If you look under 25 you get ID for anything age restricted, even if you're 23 and buying scratchcards or lottery where you have to be atleast 16. I'm way too paranoid to not ID people, my personal embarassment was when I ID'd an asian woman born in 1977. I'm suprised you knowingly let your 17 year old go out drinking when it's illegal. Could be me being a tight wad though.

    Ofcourse I did, that's why I'm completely against it and all for ID.

    So it was fine for you to do it but not others?

    Everyone tries their luck at getting served. The kid is being sensible and honest with his parents about he's doing. He's better than i was!

    Id rather mine was in a pub at 17 than hanging around the streets in this age, aslong as they behaved..
    Saying that tho when i went out underage i tried very hard to act responsible so people thought i was older sadly thats not the case nowadays as most of the ones of age act like morons now.


    God do i sound old :lol:

    It wasn't fine for me at all. We live in a drinking culture where people don't take alcohol seriously. There's no thought for any of the dangers of it. I honestly believe the legal age should go up to 21 so more of the kids going out will have a harder time getting in without ID as they tend to make idiots of themselves, do really stupid things (like jumping off bus shelters and piers), end up getting their stomachs pumped or get into fights.

    I still got ID'd until well into my 30's, not been for about 3 years now so I guess I must be looking sufficiently old at last :thumbup:

    They won't serve you in pubs around here unless you have ID with you. My daughter always had to take her provisional driving licence out with her as ID.

    Doesn't matter what the age limit is people will still get hold of alcohol. It's not fair to tar the young with the same stick. I know 50 years that can't be trusted to act responsibly when alcohol is involved.

    I started drinking when i was 12 and i have never gotten into a fight, jumped off a bus shelter or had my stomach pumped...none of my friends did either.

    If kids can't get served in a bar they will steal it from their parents stash/get someone else to buy it for them and they will just go down the park get drunk.
    In a bar if you're too wasted you don't get served. Theres no one to stop you when you only surrounded by other 16/17 year olds in the middle of a field.
