Me: “Your total is [total].”

Customer #1: *hands me a credit card*

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

Customer #1: “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 #1: “No, I don’t have… Wait!”

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

Customer #1: “I have a Facebook; will that work?”

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

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.”
