Why is it that people get mad when they get carded for cigarettes or alcohol?
It's not everyone that gets mad though. It's usually the ones that just turned old enough to buy them.
Last night I had some kid get all angry at me because I carded him for a pack of smokes. He had just turned 18 a few days before. Come on, really?
Am I supposed to know that you just turned 18? I told him he looked 12. He didn't like that very much.
The older customers never get mad. They are probably happy to be carded, just like I am on the rare occasions that it happens to me.
I actually love telling the young ones that they can't buy cigarettes without their ID. I usually get a violent response. Many have given me the evil eye on the way out or called me names. I even had one person pull up to the window with their car, give me the middle finger, and then peel away in the parking lot.
I have no sympathy for you if you don't have your ID on you. I especially don't care when you start to give me an attitude about it. I am hoping one day when one of these little kids peel out of the parking lot all angry, that a cop is there to see it.
We'll see who has the last laugh then.
