This must have been THE week for shitty teenagers to come in.
I was ringing at the register the other day when a kid came in wanting to buy cigarettes.
"Can I see your ID?" I said.
He looked at me. "Every time I'm in here you ask me for my fucking ID. No one else here does that but you!" he screamed. Customers were now staring at us.
I had never seen this kid before. But that was nothing new. That's usually how they work - they try to confuse us or make us look stupid so that we sell them what they want.
"I've never seen you before, so I need your ID."
He stormed out of there, kicking open the front door on his way out. A few minutes later he came back in and whipped his ID at me. I watched as it slid across the counter onto the floor behind my register.
I looked at him. "Well since you have a nice attitude, you can take your ID and get the fuck out of here," I said as I bent down to retrieve his ID off the floor. Before I slapped it back down on the counter though, I checked out his age. He was born in 1992.
19 fucking years old and he's giving me a problem.
On his way out he was mumbling something about coming back to talk to the owner. Yeah, okay. These teens - tweens - whatever they are - just don't know who they're dealing with.
Was it spring break this week or something? I saw a large amount of shitty teenagers this week during school hours. More than I wanted to see in a lifetime.
