    How ridiculous is this!!

    Each time I fill up the car, I always buy a £1 scratch card.

    Last night, I say the pump number to the clerk (no problem)
    As soon as I ask for a scratch card, "Have you got any ID"

    I mention that she didn't ID me to buy petrol which you have to be 16 - receive a pathetic response

    I say that if its any help, Im about to drive off in my car which you have to be 17 (pointing to my car) - still not getting anyway

    Finnally tell her to stuff it and storm off
    This has happened to me five times now, I understand they must ID to protect themselves but surley if they thought I was 15 or under, they should be reporting me to the police for underage driving!

    It's pc gone mad....

    Logic takes a back seat obviously

    Like the old debate, how you can get married but can't drink at your own wedding. How you can have sex but not watch anyone else do it on the tv

    This country is bonkers!

    Id imagine if you were pre-paying then itd happen but since youd already took the petrol then she was sorta under bias to take the cash for it..!

    You must look pretty young, dont think ive ever been ID'd for either but ive always been pretty tall.. Hmm.

    Bad luck chap!

    I've been asked for ID when I went to a nightclub and I'm 32!!! (must be my boyish good looks).

    I used to work at a petrol station and used to do the same, but after a while I got to know the the regulars and never asked for ID. But I do remember one time helping out a new starter and she was asking everyone for ID.. It was so embarasing to explain to a 75 year old who came down everyday to buy is fags that is older enough to buy them even if he is very short!!!

    But just to point out one thing to Souleh. The petrol attended is in contorl, if he or she thinks your underage they should not start the pump.. But half the time they can't be bothered.
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    I always thought they had to accept you at the pump, just a flawed system then

    I did have ID on me, but its the principal
    Why should I have to show them when they didn't ask for it when buying petrol and can happily watch me drive of
