The only place I get asked for ID in the USA without fail is at the grocery store. What is the point in that? How many 20 year olds are there that look 40? I guess it is because they have to type the DOB into the register?
I have only ever been asked for ID once in the UK and that was at Tesco a few years ago. I had sent my licence to the DVLA and had about £130 worth of food on the belt. The woman working there asked me for my ID, I explained it was at the DVLA, I was actually 32 and that I was a police officer. She looked at my police ID and commented it didnt have my date of birth on there. I resisted the temptation to be sarcastic and told her politely that there are no 17 year old police officers in the UK. She just looked at me with a gormless expression. So I walked off and left her to sort the belt full of shopping I had loaded.
By all means ask people who look youg for ID, but I have grey hair for gods sake! Common sense approach.
I'll bet if you did make a sarcastic remark, there would have been an official complaint about your conduct and a talking to from your superiors.

An aircraft over flying 30,000ft in SA airspace has to stop serving alcohol How is this policed?
