Exactly. Bar staff seem to manage it even though they're serving hundreds of people a night. I don't care about being asked for ID, but the same person every time would piss me off.

I don't mind being asked, but very rarely happens.
Standards are definitely getting higher though, as pre turning 18 I never got asked, between 18 and 21 was asked 3 times, and now I get asked quite a lot.
When I was 16/17 was friends with some guys a couple of years older than me, I never got asked and they always did, used to royally piss them off.

Morrisons check anyone who looks under 25 now, but I think they're the only one and everywhere else checks if they look under 21.

man, i got ID'd for a lotto ticket AND cigarettes on the same day, by the same woman, at a local shop I've been going to since I was like, 7 years old. And i'm 24.
I get ID'd in pubs from time to time, but, having had the 'pleasure' of tending bar before, I kinda have sympathy for the rotten no-good bastards who ID me.

Was in Wetherspoons the other week with my 18-19 yr old mates (I'm 22) and not only did they ID us all, every single time we ordered from the bar, but whilst we were sat at the table too. It's ridiculous.
Oh and the only one they scanned, was mine. As if I'd need a fake ID at 22. Rudeness.

we called the manager over, who had indeed seen my friends ID a few times, but he told us that as a member of his team had asked to see ID, it had to be shown!

As for someone else asking about the birthdate, bouncers sometimes do this incase you use a similar looking mates/siblings ID, or made a different birthday for a fake ID, and unable to recall it at random.
