It happened again...

On the way home from work, I stopped at D&W (our local grocery store) to pick up a six pack of oat pops and a few other necessities. Normally, I use the self check-out lane, but since I had beer, I went through a lane with a cashier. Luckily, there was no waiting, so I put my beer and groceries and on the conveyor belt and they rolled towards the cashier, show was named Barb. Barb looked at me and said, "I need to see you ID please, young man."

Seriously.

I smiled and I removed my license from my wallet and I handed it to Barb. She looked at my birth date and said, "Oh, my, you look so young! I never would have guessed your age!"

I am 45 years old and I am still getting carded. Life agrees with me.

Are you sure they don't card everyone? I think I was in there one day and this guy in front of me...had to have been mid-70s, was asked for his ID. I mean, not to say you're not a youthful 45, but.....

Or, maybe I'm just jealous since I've yet to be carded in The Valley of the Sun. :-)

I suppose, Lisa, if you show up at the Stop & Shop with the Tot in tow, nobody would think to card you. They would probably think you needed a belt or two to get through the day!

PK

P.S. For the record, Deirdre has seen me carded at the D&W at Breton Village... ;->

Try Smitty's on Lake Drive in Eastown. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be carded in there even if you were 7 1/2 years old buying a 40 ouncer and a carton of cigarettes. :-)
