But let's imagine that he didn't happen to have ID with him because, perhaps, he hasn't been ID'd in 40 years, then you might imagine he would be pissed off at having to go home and get it because some kid a fifth* of his age is being a smartarse. *OK, in the US a fifth would be pushing it..
Too bad it is the law you must have a valid form of identification on your person at all times. Whether he had been ID'd in 40 years or not, he is legally required to have active posession of his ID. But I'm fairly certain this is a case of this man being pure lazy.
6- hopefully he had his Id if he was driving. That's only assuming he drove.
Actually this FML could be taken different ways... She said she tried to be sweet and I.D. Him. I get it... She could have also been trying to be sweet about it because it IS company policy and she knew no matter what she had to ask. I worked at a bank for 6 years and got yelled at constantly because I would ask for identification. Anyways, this could be taken either way.. No need to attack one person for thinking differently.
To those of you who can't seem to understand this simple FML: Company policy was to check the ID of people who appeared young. The OP, seeing that the customer was obviously old and as such not in need of being ID'd, decided to act cute and make believe the customer appeared to be youthful. The 'correct' response for the customer would have been to laugh and maybe say something like "ah, thanks sweetie", and then (assuming the OP knew how to correctly continue the transaction) pay for his item and leave. The customer should have only gotten angry if he was told that he'd still have to show ID after the joke got a laugh.
I don't understand that policy. Unless someone goes to great lengths and hires a makeup artist to make you resemble an elderly person, it is not difficult to differentiate between an 18 year old and a 60 year old, so why ID them? If it's not policy...just why?
My brother is 28 and he still gets ID all the time, meanwhile I know some 18 years old who look like their 25. Some people just have a younger face and some have an older face. I worked at a grocery store for 3 years, and if I couldnt tell they where 40 or older I had to ID. The only time I didn't ID someone was if they had gray hair, if I knew them, or if I had ID them before. It's not being rude, it's being safe.
