“if she was unable to explain why she needed sight of a document that she had no power to insist should be produced”.

I think you will find that any one selling age related goods, has a right to ask for proof of age. Perhaps carry a certified copy of your birth certificate if it concenrs you that much that a till person asks you for proof of age. You must be an absolute nightmare at check in when your passport goes out of sight. What about all the personal data on your boarding card. I think the reality check is to take it as a compliment that you were indeed asked for proof of age at 50years +!

Also Disgusted, before walking off in a strop remember that you are where you are and the till person is where they are – give them some slack……………………………………

Its Christmas (or whatever you celebrate), smile…………….season of good will.

I wish you the very best for the season of goodwill and here’s to a great 2011.

Happy travels Disgusted
