At the convenience store yesterday to buy some smokes.

ME: "Two packs of Camel Lights please"

MINWAGE: "We only haf 'em in soft packs"

ME: "Ok, fine, just one pack then"

MINWAGE: "Can I see your ID?"

ME: "Sure" I hold out my wallet showing my ID she looks at it and turns a grabs a notepad. I put my wallet back in my pocket

MINWAGE: "Hode on, I need to write down your Drivers license number"

ME: "I'm sorry, you need to do what?"

MINWAGE: "I need to write down your Drivers License number"

ME: "I'm not going to let you write down my Drivers License number"

MINWAGE: "Well I can't sell you these cigarettes" With an air of royalty she snatches the smokes off the counter and puts them away

ME: "My driver's license number is none of YOUR business"

MINWAGE: "Well, we got busted by tha po-leese too many times and this is what we do now. You gonna haf to buy your smokes somewhere else den"

ME: "Too Easy" I leave. Guy down the street didn't even ask for my ID let alone write it down.


Now, Sure, perhaps my tinfoil is on a bit too tight. There isn't much they can do with a DL # but I figured it was not something I wanted MINWAGE sitting there with, er WIF.

Too paranoid,

She would have accepted your CC # instead if the DL makes you uncomfortable.

Me: "Well, then, I'll need YOU to write YOUR Driver's License Number for ME because I'm keeping track of who has MY number..."

Them:

when i show my .mil identification i get store clerks on trips that tell me that they can't sell me anything without my drivers license...

i always take it to the next level and ask for a manager.

once, the manager acted like a dick... i simply told them i understood their policy is their policy.

they acted like i was gonna pop a cork, i simply told them i would go ahead and put everything back.

then the manager looked around conspiratorily and told me they would sell it to me anyway.


i told them i wouldn't want them to get in trouble, and that i wouldn't visit their establishment again.

then i put everything back.

On the checking id thing for a CC. I do sometimes ask for id when I recieve a CC at the breeze. This is for one of 2 reasons. #1 you did not sign the back of your card and it quite plainly states "NOT VALID WITHOUT SIGNATURE" look close. it is there. #2 if the person has put See ID or C.I.D. or some other nonsensical thing on the back. Why do I do this? Because if the user of the card calls up and says that their kid used the card and it was not signed by them then we get a charge back. It happens all the fucking time.

So when we ask for your ID please pull the stick out of your ass. It is not that we dont trust you. We cannot afford to trust anyone.


P.S. we dont give a good goddamn what your address is and we wont remember when you walk away from our place of business. We just want to keep YOUR money safe by making sure that it is YOU that is using it.

That was a nice thing to do. I would have left it right there and tell them to shove it where the sun don't shine for wasting my time.

Working in the food industry as long as I did, I would have to agree 100%! If you paid by cash or debit card, I could care less. But the minute you want me to swipe a CC or acept a check from you...You better be prepared to show me your ID. I could care less what you weigh, or how old you are....Just wanna make sure the names match up!

This is very different from WRITING DOWN MY DAMNED DL # to Buy smokes.
