    So, I'm 99% certain that I failed a test purchase today and I am FREAKING OUT.
    I have work later on and I'm praying that I didn't actually.
    I asked the girl for ID andit was a driver's license, I got a bit confused but ultimately passed her.
    When I did that she gave me a funny look and after she left I knew Ifelt like I should've asked a colleague what they thought.
    I am terrified of what could haooen next, my life hasn't even started yet and I'm scared that this will go south fast.
    What can happen if I do fail a test purchase? I work at tescos and I can't remember what they said would happen when I started working their.
    I'm scared I've lost my job and made the store lose it's license.
    Can any one give me any advice????????

    You can serve people under 25?? You was right to ask for ID. What age did it say on her ID? She probably gave you a dirty look because she was annoyed you asked her for it. You are way looking into it

    Easier said than done, no good thoughts come at this time of night when you've started down a bad path.
    Ive read that people can be fined up to £5000, that's all my savings for uni.
    And if they close the store that's over a hundred jobs gone, because of me.
    I won't be able to calm down until I know what's happening (some people can maintain calm within the chaos, I can only do that with full understanding and an organised plan)

    Basically this.

    I also would have thought if part of your job is to ask for ID, why would you be confused?

    Please read my comment. YOU ARE LOOKING TO DEEP INTO THIS. If you accepted her ID and her age on the ID was over 18, you are fine!!!

    Think 25 is basically someone looking under 25 and you ask ID to prove their age - which you did.

    It's £1,000 fine btw for you and the manager gets fined £5,000. A big store like Tesco will probably get a slap on the wrist too.

    Was the person over 18?

    I can't remember what year tho, I think 95 but this girl looked like she was in 3rd year.
    I know I'm probably over thinking this, but that's what happens at 2am! :P
    Her ID confused me, I can't explain it but my eyes got a bit lost looking at it, I can remember the year 25 on it, so I'm assuming that's when it goes out of date.
    I'm not scared cause I didn't follow protocol, because I did. I'm scared because I instantly felt I did something wrong, like I didn't check her I'd right, my mind might've mixed up the numbers or something.
    I've had a test purchase before and passed, but have no clue how often the happen or if they happen and I fail how quickly any consequences happen next

    Well there is nothing you can do now. I think you're worrying over nothing. You followed protocol. Just relax. Watch some cat videos on YouTube and have a cup of tea.
