    With Great Money Comes Fiscal Responsibility

    | Quebec, Canada |

    Customer: “Excuse me? My 13-year-old son went to your store last night and spent over $200.”

    Me: “Okay, and what is the problem?”

    Customer: “Well, no one asked him for ID.”

    Me: *confused* “Well, did he buy anything that requires him to be a certain age?”

    Customer: “No, but he spent $200 and he’s only 13 years old. No one asked him for his ID!”

    Me: “So, I should have asked him for ID and then declined to sell something to him because he’s a teenager?”

    Customer: “Exactly. I’m shocked that your store doesn’t seem to have a policy about this.”

    Me: “Ma’am, how did your son pay for what he bought?”

    Customer: “Cash, of course. He’s way too young to have a debit or credit card.”

    Me: “So you allowed your son to spend a Friday evening at the mall with $200 cash on him, but you’re blaming our store because he spent it?”

    Customer: “Pretty much, yes.”

    Me: “Ma’am, if he wasn’t buying anything he was too young to buy, I couldn’t decline the sale because of his age, as that would be discrimination.”

    Customer: “Well, I’m pretty sure there are laws against it. I’ll be getting back to you.”
