The Amazon driver in England declined to deliver the bottle of sherry to the grandmother because she lacked a photo ID to prove her age. The gift giver says he'll deliver the order himself.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. It's probably been a while since Louise Wilkinson of Durham, England, was carded. She's 92, a little bit over the legal drinking age of 18. But it happened just this week. An Amazon driver refused to deliver a bottle of sherry to the grandmother because she lacked a proper photo ID. The sherry was a gift from her grandson, who's also over 18, who says he will just deliver the sherry himself.
