So, elemnar had to show proof of age the other day when buying a DVD through the self-checkout at her local supermarket. A PG-rated DVD, mind you, not one with an age restriction on it.
I go to another supermarket in the same chain, buy a box of paracetamol capsules... and the self-checkout doesn't ask for proof of age. This being a box of something which will melt your liver if you overdose on it.
I can't help but wonder what they're actually trying to protect against.
