Wal-Mart Complaint - Cashier accused my husband and I of having fake ID
ORANGE PARK, FLORIDA -- After finishing our lunch and leaving a restaurant, my husband decided to buy a pack of cigarettes before heading home. We stopped at a WalMart. We've been to this Walmart before, several times actually.. So no big deal. We buy the cigarettes and go home..Right? Heh, I wish!
In our Wal Mart, only one cashier lane sells cigarettes, so we headed over to that particular lane and waited in line. When it was our turn, my husband asked for his pack of cigarettes. She asked to see ID, which was a first.. Considering my husband is nearing 30. Well, no big deal.. He pulls out his driver's license.
'This ID is expired, I need to see something else'
Expired?!?! My husband was driving with an expired license?! We look at the Driver's License, and view the 'Expired Date.' Phew, turns out..The cashier was viewing the 'ISSUED' date. We explained this to her, and she gives us a weird look. 'No, this license is EXPIRED, see? Look at the old date.. EXPIRED.. You see it? It's an old date!' It's an old date because that's when the license was issued, but she obviously doesn't understand that. We ask to speak to a manager, wait about five minutes.. When no one comes, I decided to buy the cigarettes!
I show her MY Driver's License, and she says..Basically so everyone else in line can hear.. That my Driver's License is fake. Yup. I'm married, and can legally smoke, drink, AND drive.. But feel the need to have a fake ID. Yup.
The manager finally comes..Asks to see my husband's ID.. Then looks at my ID.. And tells her these IDs are perfectly legal, and gives the go ahead to sell my husband his stupid cigarettes already.
Problem solved, right? Nope. She tells her manager that he's wrong, and our IDs are INDEED fake ones, and she's not going to sell minors cigarettes.. Sigh.
She's basically arguing with her manager, right there at register.. Her manager sells my husband his cigarettes, with the cashier in full protest.. We get the cigarettes, and go home.
This is why I have never smoked! lol.
Fun times that experience was.
