TESCO: I was also refused alcohol because one of my daughters did not have their ID

I TOO suffered the same humiliation at Tesco, March. I was being served quite normally with my weekend shopping including several bottles of wine when my 21-year-old daughters appeared to help with the packing.

I support any shop for checking the age of the person buying alcohol, but this was clearly not the case.

How can they justify this policy, as most people with children have to take them to the shops with them? Are they all refused alcohol? I don't think so.
Even on questioning their decision I was told that the checkout operator's decision was final even though the situation was clearly ridiculous.
