This is more amusing than anything, but still not what I want to hear when buying cigarettes. I went to a gas station on my lunch break at work and walked into the store. The lady behind the counter greeted me and then asked, 'What do you need?' I replied with a box of Camel Lights.

She goes, "OH! Well, then 'WHAT YOU WANT?!'" (yes, just like that) And then informed me that cigs are a WANT not a NEED. Duh. Like I never knew they were bad for me. Then she kept on about it. About how they are a 'want'. After she gets them down for me, and puts them on the counter and begins ringing me up she THEN decides to see my ID (why didn't she card me in the first place?)

I jokingly thanked her for asking then she looked at me like I was crazy. I explained that because I'm 25 and I'm still getting carded. She goes, "Oh you don't think I still get carded?! I GET CARDED!' Whatever lady, I didn't ask for a non-smoking lecture or guilt trip. You don't look like my mama.

Not to mention that my statement didn't mean a personal attack on your age. If she can't handle people having a smoking habit, she shouldn't work in a freaking gas station!
