    I was going into a newsagents and a couple of teenagers (im guessing about 16-17) asked me to buy them some alcohol, They didn't ask for anything too hard ( just some fosters) so i obliged. Just wondering if anyone else has done this? or could i get into big trouble for this?

    I always tell them to jog on.

    And yes, you can get in trouble for doing that considering they're underage.

    No, I've been asked that before and I politely told them to sod off.

    No no, That's naughties!! :zomg:

    You should take their money but use it to buy them something more suitable... like starburst sweets.

    and THEEEN go off on a rant about how 'back in my day these were called opal fruits'.

    You oldie..

    I wouldn't - I refused to buy alcohol for my sister who's 17 and I wouldn't for strangers either.

    I bought cigarettes for teenagers hanging around the shop one time, but in hindsight I shouldn't have. And I wouldn't in future.

    Same goes for alcohol. I'd buy it for my brother, but not random people or for his mates.

    I'm 16 and a half I know loads of people who buy me alcohol and ****. How else would I cope with my nicotine addiction? You're all so selfish! :nopity:

    I would if they hadn't cracked down on this. I don't see any problem with 16 year-olds having a few beers, I just wouldn't risk getting in trouble for the sake of strangers.
