    Basically, this woman's son goes to the above store, someone recommends him a 15+ game, and his only ID is his Oyster card which isn't legally binding ID in their stores.

    So she gets all hysterical and demands to speak to their CEO, and then moans about how it's not like it's alcohol he's buying as if that's somehow a valid point in her defence.

    http://twitter.com/queenofshops

    STILL holding on after 8mins to spk to a human at GAME Ox st where they refused to sell my 17 yr son a 15 + game. Now they've cut me off.

    So now the mngr of GAME has hung up on me after another 10min phone wait. I believe Ian Shepherd is the CEO. Are you out there? Want to talk

    HIs 16 plus Oyster card. Plus the sales asst advised these games for him. The cashier then said no.

    he doesn't have a licence! He is 17. How many kids go out with their passport. We are not talking drink, but a 15plus video!

    He's gone back with passport to prove and speak to the manager as he didn't ask to see her first time. I am training him! Takes time!

    Okay I know GAME are shit but...if it's store policy and he doesn't have proper ID and obviously must look about 12, what is she banging on about?

    And yet you can fucking bet that if they'd let him buy an 18+ game bitches like her would be falling over themselves to make an "expose" about it.

    I think it's fair enough that they knocked him back over the ID issue. I like how she says 'It's not as if it's alcohol', which shows she obviously thinks all games are for kids.

    You can bet if he managed to get hold of GTA4 and she caught him beating a prostitute to death with a pool cue after she'd fallated him in the back of a Corsa she'd be going batshit mental.

    She clearly sent him in there praying he would walk out with an 18+ GAME and she probably has her indignation speech prepared that an Oyster card is NOT a valid form of ID. Now that went all tits up she has to salvage it. Tool.

    Good on Game. Glad to know they're taking the age verification seriously.

    Sort of. You put @[their twittername] in front of your post and it pops up on their page for them to see, but not for everyone else.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    People like this live for conflict because it's the only bit of excitement they can get out of their miserable lives.

    Sounds like she hasn't got laid since she conceived the kid.

    hopefully her son will be influenced by deadly prem and copycat it and chop her up. He gets his game, she can no longer talk. Everyone wins.

    I can understand if she's throwing a fit over how she/her son has been treated over the issue, rather than 'just' being carded, then I could understand it, at least contextually within the Queen Of Shops head-up-own-arse unrealistic expectations reality-bubble, but it seems that's not the case:

    My son did have valid I.D. They would not accept it. End of

    http://twitter.com/queenofshops/status/36545949400563712

    Valid ID in her eyes not under games Policy of accepted ID, its like why bouncers, clubs and pubs generally only take passports and driving licenses and not bus passes or other vague unofficial forms of ID

    @beemoh,

    he didn't have valid ID though, he was using an Oyster card.

    I wonder if she lets him run up thousands of pounds of debt using her debit/credit card.

    She would be the same person to complain if he was sold alcohol etc. At least they are verifying his age.

    Wow, I praised Game.

    This happened to me when I was 17. I tried to buy Bottom (15) on VHS and the smug cunt in WH Smith wouldn't sell it to me. He knew aswell, the little bleeder. I had to phone my dad and get him to buy it for me. Oh, the humiliation.

    Still, she's a cunt and must die.

    Ah right yeah I get you. I thought you were saying that they were in the wrong. Misread you.

    You'd think, to be honest, that a self-proclaimed "retail expert" would be aware of what constitutes valid ID.

    Like has already been said, it genuinely wouldn't surprise me if she was trying to get a sting so she could write about how "OMG MY SON WAS SOLD A VIDEOGAME WITHOUT VALID ID"
