Right, christmas hols so all (most) of the students have gone home, so we've just got random old people and internationals coming in, and I had the weirdest
guy came in today.
He tried to buy a 10-pack of cigarettes, and looked under 25 (about 18 actually) so I asked him for ID as per usual. He pulls out a perfectly legit-looking driving licence that has his birthday as February '94 (making him still 17...and too young to buy the cigarettes). I ask him how old he is, while still holding his driving licence, and he says 'Eighteen.', so I say, 'Well your driving licence says you're seventeen', and he goes, 'okay', takes it, and leaves without a fuss! Weird as anything! I figured he was either just trying it on and hoping someone didn't check it properly, or was sent in by the fuzz to make sure we were actually checking the dates.
This is curious, we also had a guy come in and try to get cigarettes, who was born in 94 (can't remember the month). He however admitted he was 17 when asked.....bizarre. I wonder if it was the same person!
I also wondered if he was a test person, however he can't have been if he said he was 18 when you asked him, since they aren't allowed to lie about their age if they are asked (We got told this on our licensing course).
