Stop Carding Me, Please!

When I go to buy cigs or wine…these people are worse than police, deputies and Border Patrol.

Yesterday I got asked at Walgreens. The lady wanted my birth date and before I said it she says loudly, “And give me your REAL birth date. Don’t lie.” ::gasp::

Today, I went to CVS and bought a carton of cigs so I won’t have to deal with getting carded for another week and a half or two…but…the man carded me. grrrrrr. He said it’s a $1000 fine for the store and another $1000 for the clerk if they sell to minors. Do I really look like I’m a child under 18? I mean reeaallly? I don’t think so.

The liquor store owned by this lady down the road is the worst. She always asks me for ID and scrutinizes it for a few minutes, looking at me then the ID and tilts it to see the watermark, then repeats the process a few more times. I’m always expecting her to call the police to verify that my ID is real. Even as I walk out the door there, I can feel her eyes on me like I’m some kind of criminal mastermind ID forger or I’m using someone else’s ID.
