(I have just gotten my first job, at age 16. I am a clerk in a gas station that mostly sells gas and cigarettes.)

Customer: “Oh, hey [my name], I didn’t know you worked here.”

Me: “Yeah, I just started a couple weeks ago. What can I get you?”

Customer: “Can I get a pack of cigarettes?”

Me: “We were in grade 8 together, and I’m only 16. I’m pretty sure I can’t sell you those.”

Customer: “Yeah I like, failed a lot of grades. I’m 19 now.”

Me: “Really? Can I see your ID then?”

Customer: “I…I think I’ll try the 7/11 down the street.”
