Category: Underaged

Everyone at one time has tried to sneak into a movie or bought a drink they’re too young for. However; when stupid customers make this attempt the results can be both hilarious and pitying. And this is before alcohol has destroyed their brain cell(s)!

Thinks You’re A Deadfool

| DE, USA | Movies & TV, Underaged

(I am taking tickets at my theater during the opening week of ‘Deadpool’ when two obviously underage teenagers, probably fifteen or so, walk up to me with tickets.)

Me: “Hi! Welcome to [Theater]! Can I take your tickets, please?”

Customers: *hand me tickets*

Me: “Sorry, guys, but Deadpool is rated ‘R.’ I’m going to need to see some ID.”

Customer #1: “What?! But it’s a superhero movie! It’s ‘PG-13!'”

Me: “Nope! We’ve had a couple people think the same thing, but it’s rated ‘R.’ If you don’t have ID, they can switch out your tickets at the box office.”

Customer #2: “But they let us buy the tickets! Are you sure it’s rated ‘R?'”

Me: “Very sure. It says so on the poster right behind you.”

Customer #2: “Well, are you sure the poster’s right?”

(I proceeded to explain that the movie was, in fact, rated what it said on the poster. 20 minutes later, after several attempts to get me to let them into the movie, including a phone call from the customers’ mom, they finally left and got a ticket for a different movie. Security later caught them trying to sneak into ‘Deadpool’ anyway.)

No ID, No Idea, Part 25

| Lethbridge, AB, Canada | At The Checkout, Food & Drink, Popular, Underaged

(A customer in and picks out a bottle of vodka that is currently being advertised in our flyer.)

Me: “Hi! Could I please see your ID?”

Customer: “I only have a photo of it. Is that okay?”

(He holds out his phone to show me.)

Me: “No.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Are you reeeally sure?”

(I hand him a flyer.)

Me: “Well, I can give you a photo of your liquor. Is that okay?”

Customer: *glares at me and leaves*

Didn’t See The Smoke Signals

| MN, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Underaged

(In Minnesota, it’s the law to card people that look under the age of 40 if they are buying tobacco or tobacco-related products. If you refuse to show ID, even if you look over 18, we cannot sell to you after we’ve asked for it.)

Me: “Hi there! What can I get for you?”

Female Customer: “Can I have a pack of Camel Crush?”

Me: “Sure! Can I see your ID?”

Female Customer: “I don’t have it with me.”

Me: “Sorry, but I can’t sell to you without an ID.”

Female Customer: “I’m 28; my birth year is 1986.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I can’t sell to you without a proper form of identification.”

Female Customer: “Well, fine! I’ll just go somewhere else.”

Me: “Have a nice night.”

(I watch her storm out to the truck on one of our pumps. I watch as a guy gets out of the driver’s side and comes into the store.)

Me: “Hi there! How can I help you?”

Male Customer: “Can I get a pack of Camel Crush and a tin of Grizzly Wintergreen?”

Me: “Sir, if you are trying to buy a pack of cigarettes for the girl that was just in here, then I cannot sell to you.”

Male Customer: “She’s 28.”

(He basically just admitted that he is associated with her and probably buying her cigarettes.)

Me: “It doesn’t matter, sir. She failed to produce a proper form of ID when asked. I cannot sell to either of you.”

Male Customer: “That’s ridiculous. She’s 28 and I smoke, too.”

Me: “That’s the law, sir. You’ve admitted you are trying to buy cigarettes for her and I saw you get out of the same truck she got into. I cannot sell to you.”

Male Customer: “That’s f****** ridiculous! I’ll be back in the morning to talk to your manager!”

Me: “Okay, good luck! Make sure to read the signs in the store next time that say we card anyone under 40! Have a nice night!”

(They never talked to a manager or the corporate office.)
