Anyway, most of the employees know me, or I've seen them around. Almost all have sold me cigarettes. Especially
I walked up to the counter, and she actually was ready to sell me what I wanted! Shock.
TG: That girl
TG: Hey. What can I get for ya?
Me: Hi... Marlboro menthols please
TG: That it?
TG: Ok, that's *total*... you're 18, right?
Me: Yeah *thinking, wow, best form of checking ID EVER*
TG: Ok, have a nice day!
As I'm walking out I hear her yell at me. I go back and she says, "I forgot to check your ID!"
Me: ...ok? You already sold me the cigarettes.
TG: But I gotta check!
Me: You realize I could be 15... and you just sold me cigarettes and THEN checked my ID... right?
TG: But I still gotta check. Give me your ID!
Me: *gets out ID, shows her*
TG: You aren't 18! I don't want you coming back here again!
Me: Excuse me? I'm 18... birthdate 11/10/86... It says straight on the card... 18 in 2004.
Me: *wtf?* 18 in 2004... it's 2005 now.
TG: I KNOW THAT
Honestly I had to sit there and explain to the girl that ... years don't go backwards. She finally understood what was going on when she read my card. And told me I could come back if I wanted to. It's more necessarily "Bad" service just... holding me up once again when I'm on my way somewhere. And ... not being very smart?
