Now that Challenge 25 seems to be out in force everywhere, how do you go about proving your eligibility to purchase alcohol/gain entry to clubs? Do you a), sigh with resignation and clutch your passport for dear life wherever you go, accepting that its potential loss is worth the privilege of drinking? Or do you instead b), sigh with resignation and accept that you may well be limited to Coke and fruit juice but this is preferable to the potential loss of such a valuable document?
I'm more of a b) lass myself, though I sometimes mix this up by pretending I'm a teenager and getting an older looking or an occasional driving friend to order for me. As drinking venues are stepping up regulations, this seems to happen an increasing amount.
I'm sure when I was first legal one could quite easily get away with a passport photocopy.
