    Me: “Your total is [total].”

    Customer: *hands me a credit card*

    Me: “Thanks, I just need to see a photo ID with this.”

    Customer: “I don’t have one.”

    Me: “Well, do you have a school, work, or military ID? Pretty much any way to match your name and face will work.”

    Customer: “No, I don’t have…wait!”

    (The customer digs in her purse and pulls out a phone.)

    Customer: “I have a Facebook, will that work?”

    (The customer pulls up her account and shows it to the clerk.)

    Me: “Well I guess for today, but next time we’ll need a physical ID.”

    (The customer finishes paying and the next customer steps up.)

    Customer 2: “Now just to let you know I don’t have my ID either, but I do have a MySpace.”
