And that is how you buy beer under-aged. I'm actually curious if OP checked ID after how odd that must have been. Total blind-side/destraction

@ 34: It's actually illegal to sell alcohol to someone who's obviously drunk. At least, I think that applies to stores as well as bars. Dang, I should probably retake that seller's certification class...

I'm under 21 so I wouldn't know anyways, nor does it apply to me, but does "drunk" mean the person FEELS drunk? Or is it based on whether or not they would be over the legal limit?

79: Drunk means "feeling any effects of alcohol". Of course, you can be a little drunk or a lot drunk. Stores and bars usually have the right to refuse service, and if the seller THINKS that the customer is drunk, they're usually obligated to refuse to sell that customer any more alcohol.

99 - Here's how: The adults in your jurisdiction elected the government, and the government made a law saying that no one should sell alcohol to somebody who's already had too much. That's the whole story. Don't laugh; if you ever work in a restaurant or bar, you'll learn that there can be some seriously heavy fines on YOU (not just the bar) if you get caught breaking this law. It's $2500 where I live, for example.

You should call the police, or an ambulance if she can not take care of her self alone while drunk, and don't you guys have a policy of not selling booze to obviously over drunk people? FYL indeed

You'd laugh if someone peed on your shop floor and left you to clean it? Well, I might laugh too. But I think I'd be a little more inclined to throw a filing cabinet at their face. It could go either way.
