By IDPlease
Today my job started requiring all transactions regarding cigarettes or alcohol to have the ID scanned before proceeding. There is no way yo bypass this function. I carded a 60 year old man and his 40 year old son who both yelled at me for 10 minutes. FML

Where I live, everyone is carded. This is because some people have had their privileges revoked when it comes to buying alcohol. If they have more than one DUI or anything involving substance charge, they have a red stripe on their licence. This tells the cashier that it is illegal to see alcohol to them.

They are supposed to have it. I know some users that mod will reject a FML post without the right format of "Today,"

It's illegal to card people? How? If you're selling products that can only be legally sold to someone of a certain age you have every right to card them no matter how old they look.

I see signs where I live in Delaware and back in Illinois that it was a law to card everyone, and they posted signs of the law at the register, along with a "born before this date?" tear off calendar. I doubt buying a grey wig would fool many people but someone will try it.

Oh, this guy probably means that it's messed up that they got mad, because in many states this would be the law.

Because we didn't use to card before. Plus, they look old enough that most people would assume you're over 21 without carding.

It's the same people kvetching that gas isn't 75 cents a gallon or the cinema isn't a dime anymore.

Or "when I was younger we didn't need these charges or go through all these steps!" Or that you have a collector cup from 7-eleven with a 25¢ refill they no longer honor.

Well, times change. Are we really safer with all these changes made?
