Walgreens won't accept my state I.D.
EL PASO, TEXAS -- I am from Ohio and I am visiting in Texas for a few months. The Walgreens on the corner of N Resler and E Redd won't accept my legal state I. D. from Ohio. They say its in the policy to allow the clerks to deny out of state forms or identification if they deemed fit or necessary. I can understand if I am trying to buy 18 bottles of whiskey or 20 boxes of medicine. But a pack of smokes? Really? One pack of smokes? Talk about inconvenience. And he wasn't even nice about it. Like as if its common knowledge that you can't buy cigarettes outside of your home state... lol. I didn't realize I should have bought a bunch of cartons to last me a few months and brought them onto the plane with me. I was a manager at a drugstore for many years. I have never even heard of that nor would I have ever not accepted an out of state I. D. If its legal and legitimate I don't see the problem. All he had to do was swipe it on his machine and it would have cleared. That's what those machines are for. So I went to Walmart across the street. Walmart was nice and even asked me how Ohio weather was :)
