We offer to take passport photos, but newborn babys need to be at least 3-4 weeks old to avoid eye damage (Since the eyes have to be open while using flash from the camera). A woman enters with a child that looks like freshly baked.

Woman: Need passport for child.
Me: Im sorry, but your child needs to be at least 3 to 4 weeks old, or else you risk permanent damage.
Woman: But i need passport!

This goes back and forth a few times, after which she leaves frustrated. A few minutes later, a musclebound hunk of a man enters the shop, with her following 2 meters behind.

Muscleman, close to my face: You refused to take a picture?
Me, slightly speaking faster as i talk: imsorrysirdidntmeantoimsorry butchildneedstobe4weeksold…

He looks at the child: She clearly is older than that, cant you see?

With that in mind, and a soft, fast paced voice i took the pictures. They got what they wanted, but please everyone, rethink whats more important to you next time… and if its really worth the risk.
