It also wound back the clock, taking his age down from 30 to 10, sadly too young to buy his grog.
“(The bottlo attendant) scanned it and was then like ‘this shit has been happening all week since we got these scanners’,” said Mr Shannon
“I asked if I could have a look and saw what it said. It wasn’t even close. I said ‘do you mind if I take a photo to show some friends’ and everyone thought it was hilarious.”
Fortunately, the bottlo attendant agreed Mr Shannon looked closer to 30 than 10 and sold him the booze by manually inputting his details into the register. scanner,
It wasn’t the first time Mr Shannon has had trouble with the scanners — it shaved a few years from his age previously and altered his name slightly.
A spokesman for the Department of Attorney-General said the department hadn’t received reports of consistent failure from licensees.
“If the ID is damaged, worn or scratched, then the onscreen replication will reflect the condition of the item scanned,” he said.
Licensees are required to report the problem if the scanners don’t work.
