The Drink Denial

The Puzzler


RAY: This puzzler was sent in by George Parks. He writes, "My son sat patiently in his seat and waited for service. After awhile, an attractive looking young lady came over and asked if he would like something to drink. He replied that he'd like a beer. Being youthful in feature and appearance, she asks him to produce an ID. The woman checks his ID and, with no problem, serves him his beer.

"Four hours later, he's in the same chair and asks the same server for another beer. To his surprise, the server again asks for his ID. Not a surprise. She forgot who he was. He produces the same ID. The server tells him that unfortunately she cannot not serve him alcohol at this time, as it would be illegal for her to do so.

"It has nothing to do with closing times or blood alcohol levels."

What's going on here?
