UK Co. Won't Sell 'Net to Old Folk

Carphone Warehouse advertises itself as "Europe's leading independent retailer of mobile phones and services", but apparently not if you are a septuagenarian. The company has admitted that they may not sell their services to people over 70 years old unless they are accompanied by a young person.
"Later a young lady said company policy is that anyone over 70 might not understand the contract. She said, 'If you would be prepared to go to the shop in town and take a younger member of your family we might give you a contract.'"
