What the **** did you just ******* say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my ******* words. You think you can get away with saying that **** to me over the Internet? Think again, ****** . As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re ******* dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little **** . If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ******* tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re ******* dead, kiddo.

Working at retail myself we have to ask this question no matter who is the customer. ****** retarded asking a 40 year old woman her birthday to buy a mature rated game.

I work for Target as a Cashier. We have to ask for ID from everyone who buys alcohol, video games (rated M), and some over the counter medicine. Like, we can't proceed to the next item if we don't scan the ID. We have to physically scan the ID into the computer and people don't understand that it's not my fault and that my computer isn't going to steal your identity.    
   
 However we do not have to ask for ID's when the customer uses a credit cards to buy $2,000 worth of Visa gift cards. Seems legit.   
   
Also, gif unrelated

Supermarket worker here;
In the UK at least, there are heavy penalties for selling alcohol to underaged people and Trading Standards send around undercover operators to ensure that sellers are enforcing the age restrictions.
The store could lose its license to sell alcohol for a period of time (Which is economically crippling, considering the proportion of sales that come from booze), the company can be fined thousands of pounds and the checkout operator who sold the alcohol can be fined a hundred or two pounds on the spot, in addition to probably getting fired.
There's a lot at stake, so most workers are going to err on the side of caution and ID everyone without a walking stick and blue rinse. I know it can be annoying but look from their side, you could be an undercover Trading Standards inspector for all they know, they're not being mean or anything, it's just if they let the wrong person through they're ruined.

K so I work at a movie theater that provides Senior discounts, however I am not in any way aloud to assume anyone is a senior, if you want the senior discount you have to 						*******					 ask for it. For some reason, this pisses old people the 						****					 off, however I am 99% sure if I entered in a senior discount without asking that would also piss them the 						****					 off. Is it really that difficult to just give a clear cut order and present your ID, you act like we've been preparing for you specifically and I should be able to cater to everything on your order without having been given the proper information. I've already served 200 other people the last two hours I've been standing in box office and I will serve 600 more the next 6 hours I will be standing here, you aren't that special, customer. 75% of the time during a transaction I'm not even looking at the 						******					 customer I'm looking down at my screen punching in what needs to be punched in.

If you make a big deal about getting an ID out (THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE AT ALL TIMES OUT OF YOUR HOUSE ANYHOW) of your pocket then you shouldn't be getting alcohol, cigarettes, or anything that is age restricted.


The employees can get hit really bad if they sell to a minor. Where I work it's under 40 and we card, but some places have been stung and have no choice in the matter anymore. Quit yer bitching and show'em your id.

If you serve someone under age in Scotland. You could get a fine up to £5000, go to court, get a criminal record, lose your job and the shop/bar could lose it's license. I've been caught out by a tester once and got a stern warning and my boss sold a police tested under age man and was taken to court and lost his job. So yeah, sometimes we get it wrong and ask someone in their thirties for ID but really, it's worth asking.

Im a bartender and if some guys pissing me off i will ask him for his ID   
i've asked 45 year old men for it, when they have been way to drunk   
MFW   
   
also different bars/supermarkets have different standards    
Tesco has a 'think thirty' policy meaning when my friend at the tender age of 32 was buying a bottle of Laphroaig, he was ID'd and yelled at the cashier    
'You got me! im actually 15 buying a bottle of 10 year aged malt whisky, for $40 dollars to drink in a park'

I read somewhere that there was a person who looked like they could've been in their mid thirties so the cashier didn't ask, turned out they were only 19 (the legal drinking age in the USA is 21) and because the police and owner found out that the question "how old are you" was never asked, technically the 19 year old didn't lie about his age and so the cashier was the one that got into trouble. So maybe that's why they should ask that question all the time that way the customer will be liable if they are underage and they ended up lying or showing a fake ID.

I swear to god the grocery store I work at is retarded as **** .
We have to card everyone no matter what if they're buying alcohol or tobacco products.
Even the man who is around ninety years old and his hand is shaking as he gets his wallet out.

It's like they think we can't decide that that man is older than 21.

I've always wanted to tell them, "Bitch, I'm in ******* college, I have an above-average GPA. I think I can tell if someone's older than 21. **** your **** ."

That never happens.
#97 to #96 - sniffythebird ONLINE (01/11/2013) [-]
I've worked as a cashier for almost 2 years.
If someone obviously is above legal age, no need to ask. If someone looks below 25, we ask. If someone looks young, but you know the person (and know they're over 18), no need to ask. Logic and common sense.
