His IQ Is Under 18

| Working | April 5, 2014

(It is 2013. I am 20 years old and I stop buy the gas station store on my way back from a walk.)

Me: “Can I get a $2 scratcher ticket, please.”

Cashier: “Can I see ID?”

Me: “Sure!” *shows ID that clearly states my birthday and in big letters: ’18 in 2011’*

Cashier: *stares blankly* “You are over 18?”

Me: “Yes. I was born in 1993.”

Cashier: *looks down at ID again* “So you are over 18?”

Me: “Yes. I am 20. I turned 18 two years ago.”

Cashier: *looks at me really confused and back down at my ID*

Me: *slightly frustrated* “I was born in 1993, it is 2013. It has been 20 years.”

(By this point another customer has gotten behind me in line and witnessed the exchange.)

Cashier: *blankly* “So you are over 18?”

Next Customer Behind Me: “Dude, she is clearly over 18! Just give her the d*** ticket already!”

(After looking at my ID again and handing back my ID really tentatively, the cashier finally sells me the ticket. I grab it and as I rush out. I mutter thanks to the other customer. I am guessing the cashier was either having a long day, or was just really bad at simple math.)
