was it that they thought the Id was fake or was it just you look really young, Which could kinda be a weird compliment
I'm surprised you would even think about staying that long. I would of just said fuck this and leave after a third person saw my ID and still have doubts.
First, stores have no legal authority to detain any even if they suspect you of committing a crime. You are not required to wait until a cop arrives and have to deal with him or her. You have the right to leave. Secondly, attempting to buy alochol underage isn't a crime until you obtain possession of it. That occurs if the store completes the sale, which they are forbidden to do. Thus, no authority want so ever to stop you from leaving.
I don´t know how that works in your country, but over here you could sue the store for what would be called "hedonic damages". Though the trouble and money invested in doing such a pursue is not always worth it, it surely helps people do a statement, a claim that they are aware of their rights and unwilling to be exploited, in a legal form.
I know what your talking about my girl is 23 and gets ided all the time
