Safeway suck

This happened to me just the other night, and I wanted this community's opinion about what happened.

I have been going to the same Safeway near my house for the two years I've lived in Seattle on almost a daily basis. I know every employee who works there and they know me. So I stop by on my way home from work the other day to pick up a six pack. I take my beer to the counter and a woman who I know very well is working the register. She rings me up and asks for my ID. I'm thrown off for a second because she hasn't asked for my ID for the past year and a half. So I hand it to her.

Now this is a little sucky on my part. I'm really busy and VERY absent minded so my lisence expired a couple weeks ago. She looks at it and tells me that she won't sell me beer. Not only that but she tells me that she KNOWS that I'm over 21, but she still won't sell it to me. Now I know a lot of stores have to cover their ass when it comes to IDing someone. You can get hit with a heavy fine for that, but I'm obviously not an undercover cop and she knows I'm over 21. I think there's a point where covering your ass ends and common sense and customer loyalty come in. Thoughts?
