And not only was this customer delayed, so was every customer behind her. And if M&S works the same way as every other store with check-out lines, the cashier had to close down the till, cash out and her replacement cash in.

She had a responsibility to disclose her personal restrictions before being assigned to the job.
When you have a minor that can't sell all that happens is a person of age comes over and scans the item, not till closing etc.

wait what ... the US alcohol - age restrictions also concern the cashier in the store ? seems like an hilarious oversight

i remember the upcry when legislation was passed here to check for ID when they are unsure if somebody isn't the legal age (16 beer/wine, 18 spirits etc.)

around here only if they realize a mistake after the sale and have to correct it a supervisor (with a seperate key) shows up.... needing a different cashier everytime for alcohol sounds like a huge hassle .... (putting the stuff into the bags is handled by the customers themselves in the grocery stores here)
