Was the thing to do when I was a kid in the 80's...thought about this tonight for some reason.

Don't think I've been asked since the early-mid 90's

"Hey man, here's twenty bucks...get me a twelve pack and you can keep the change"

I had some teens ask me to buy them a pack of smokes not too long ago.

Yes. There is nothing new under the sun.

cops run that sting constantly here

for tobacco too
Link Posted: 1/3/2012 10:06:26 PM EDT
never seen it
but then, canada's age is 19 and is 20 minutes away
although I have a feeling trunks get popped more often now than they did when my friends were 19 since that was pre-9/11

if some kids asked me I'd look around for the unmarked cop car as it would probably be a sting since there are entries in the police blotter fairly frequently about stores getting popped for selling to minors that the cops send in

They get it from19 year olds, who get it from 20 year olds, who get it from 21 year olds

Take kids money, go inside and buy them beer. Kids drink and drive, kids A) kill somebody and tell where they got the beer, or B) crash and kill some of them, the survivors tell where they got the beer. Cops pull the video surveilance tapes from the store and parking lot and track you down. Hilarity ensues.

I give every child i see a bottle of Everclear. problem solved.
Link Posted: 1/3/2012 10:20:08 PM EDT
Yep! They sure do.

Happened to me last week, as a matter of fact. The little shit had the blatant audacity of a OWS goon when I told him now.

Something about that sense of entitlement, I think.

We used to go downtown and hit up the bums. Buy them a bottle and they'll buy your stuff.

We did this too until I procured a fake ID. When I got old enough I used to buy for my younger brother and cousin back in eighties but now it's most likely a sting by the local cops or ABC agents and if you get caught buying for someone else you lose your license, get fined and face jail time.

Yes they do only it is cute girls that are way underaged. Not worth the risk.
Link Posted: 1/3/2012 11:11:21 PM EDT
I never once got asked for ID from the age of 17 on, so I dunno. Never had to ask anyone to buy stuff for us.

MD 20/20 .. I miss you :( sometimes.

No, because some dick decided it was worthy of a felony in some twisted form.

Yeah, had one outside sheetz try that shit with me.

Nope...not falling for that shit.

holy crap, its usually just a ticket in CA, but then again a minor gets in more trouble for having booze or smokes than weed!

There are a few places in your "nice place to live" state that would charge you with endangering a minor.

Brother always bought for me. I've been asked by kids to buy them knives or airsoft guns more than smokes or alcohol though.

When I was a teen, I never asked a stranger to buy me beer, that seems weird.



My friends 21 year old brother, however.

Take them up on the offer, get a 12 pack of rootbeer (in bottles). Keep change.

If it was a sting, you just made for an entertaining bust.

When I was in high school we knew which gas stations in the surrounding areas didn't i.d.

Not that I ever used that knowledge, but I had it.

Back in the 60's we use to order beer from a Pizza Restaurant that delivered. The old Italian who owned it would hire college students to make the deliveries. He made them buy the stuff before they left the store and if they did not make the delivery the college student was stuck with the stuff. We would order a small cheese pizza and a huge amount of beer. The college student would always ask to see our ID and we would tell them no; if you don't want to make the sale and a small tip, then take it back. The scam was kind of a dick thing to do, but it always worked.

We'd drive around till we found a "buyer" we knew in high school. Then it was all fake id's and 21 year old friends from there.

Teenagers seem to be able to get anything they want these days.

It may be easier for them to get pot, meth or heroine than it is to get booze.

It is a well known fact that illegal drugs are much easier for teenagers to acquire than alcohol, and is directly attributable to the increased levels of meth use in middle and rural America.

I don't drink but it was completely legal for kids to buy alcohol until a couple of years ago here. I would have been allowed to buy alcohol by my parents also.

The rule was pushed here by some fuck head anti alcohol movement that takes inspiration from nosey morality pushing soccer moms the USA.

If asked I will buy alcohol no problem for older teenagers (its not illegal to straw purchase) but will explain the downsides of drinking.

Moderation in such things comes from within and a personal choice not to do something.

we would just drive to chicago heights and buy whatever we wanted. mad dog 20/20 comes to mind.

Back when we were young and dumb [in the 70's] we were standing outside a store asking people to buy beer for us...One guy, looks at us, shows us his badge, and says "I'm a cop dumbass" "aww crap"...."gimme your money"...goes in and brings us out a case of Bud..and tells us not to drive....we didn't.

I get hit up for cigs alot and beer once in awhile. When I was at college the beer distributor had a camera right in your face at the register. It would also record the barcode and your ID info right on the tape. Most people didn't use that one
Link Posted: 1/4/2012 5:50:12 AM EDT
I used to get the bums that hung around my local stop n rob to do it when I was a kid, but I wouldn't do it now, I'm sure it's some kind of a felony.
