    Just popped over to Tescos to buy my EuroMillions ticket :rolleyes: and the man at the counter asks me for ID...fair enough. So I hand him over my full drivers licence (the pink one that everyone knows is a FULL license)... he has a quick glance with a bemused look upon his face before asking the person next to him...

    'Can you check the date on this for me please...is she over 15?' :eek:

    1) Is he so stupid he doesn't know how to work out from your date of birth how old you are, but

    2) Doesn't he know you have to be 17 to start driving!?

    People these days :rolleyes:

    If I win EuroMillions I'll give him £10k for making me laugh :p:

    I know the odds are so low, but they'll be even lower if you don't play.

    You've got to be in it to win it as the advert says! Think lucky!!!

    He just said plainly, 'It's a drivers license, she has to be at least 17'. The stupid guy went a lovely shade of pink :p:

    No I didn't, he looked embarassed enough! There was a huge queue of people all buying their tickets!

    Sounds like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory what with all this talk of tickets! :p:

    :eek: I'm 17 and don't think I look 15, but 22!? I think people working at these shops must get bored so for a bit of fun they ask for ID hoping you have none so they can turn you away and laugh after you have gone!!! :p:
