This really is getting really annoying now!
I was in swindon again a few weeks ago, 2 days before my birthday. Went into edwards to look for food and a bit of a drink so went to the bar.
Im there fiddeling around with money at the bar, Bar staff approches
“Hello there” She goes. Umm hang on a sec, serve her first (Pointing at my girlfriend) and she serves caroline (She’s 19).
She gets her drink and caroline gives her the money (A bit expensive for friday early Afternoon but suppose that the way it is) Anyway she looks at me. i ask for a WKD. “Do you have any I.D sir?” Im thinking “WHAT… AGAIN!!!” and she looks at my I.D (Its my proof of age card again) Sorry we don’t take this, let me just check if its ok.
She goes to the big bloke at the end of the bar. she comes back slowley followed by him. “No we dont take them” she says. “Its company policy” says the big guy with the radio ready to tell the pubs in the area not to serve me. Carolines got her Double vodka and coke and they wouldnt even let me have a drink but said i can stay till she’s done.
I work in a bar (You may have gathered by now) and MY I.D IS ACCEPTABLE!! It has a pass logo which is allowed in bars. Whats the point in paying money for a form of id that they wont accept in places like edwards. Yate’s, Baracuda, Walk about, bar me, everywhere else i have no problem with, why’s edwards got this against me.
So when i get my driving licence they can get stuffed.
i’m anti edwards now. I understand the rules of the proof of age, but i’m obviously old enough, Its like asking an 80 year old for I.D.
