    Like all "rules," there should be room for exceptions. No I.D. at all, ok, don't deliver, but the bus pass showing her age should have been accepted. I'm sure it was obvious she is over the age of 18!

    Bye, Bye COMMON SENSE. You were awesome when you were around. Too bad the millennial generation decided you were no longer needed.

    I don't fault the driver. He was following policy, and if he hadn't he very well could have been fired. It is hard to imagine that Amazon has such a Draconian policy. I can see being strict with a 30 and under crowd, but this is off the charts stupid. I don't care how good she looked. You would have at least guessed her age to be 50; well beyond the legal limit to purchase alcohol.

    If I answered to only myself, I would have delivered. However, if I worked for a place with a stated policy and requirements, and wanted/needed my job, Grandma can take the bus to the wine shop.

    VenomJ, IMO this Bezo freak slave driver who is probably one of the NWO elite is just going according to plans to control us all.
    Its no secret that we are losing rights one after the other, our nation is being invaded and our laws stomped on by judges who rule from the bench.

    "Its a damn club and we ain't in it"G.C. was right.
    Ever notice that every 8 years they change parties? Musical chairs for the people. Even if we get one that loves America they put in control a few radical 'advisers'.

    Studied French history once upon a time. They went from one extreme to another every single time.
    Common sense should of been the answer for this grandma. Obviously over 21.

    Well I for one was happy they didn't give her the alcohol. We are constantly dealing with drunken 92 year old women. :p

    Amish common sense is not allowed in a land of deceiptions. It left when they looked into granny and grandpaws diaper at the airports around the nation for WMD while untold numbers of illegals ,refugees and visa holders are crossing our borders, aerports,ports, seas When we go after Americans for their beliefs while hiding in plain site foreign and domestic radical training camps set up all over the nation,etc,et,etc.

    well the French peoples last straw was when the the oligarchs said " let'em eat cake". Got the whole family killed. Cake meaning the black gunk build up on the bottom of pots and pans.

    I agree 100%. Zero tolerance is nothing but moving liability down the command chain.

    Would help my male ego considerably if the clerk would ask to see my ID when I purchase shotgun shells.
