(Our policy is to ID under 40 for all purchases, so I check nearly every customer’s ID.)

Me: “Could I see a piece of photo ID, please?”

Customer: “Uh, I guess so.”

(She shows me her ID through the pocket in her wallet, but the photo is obscured.)

Me: “I’m sorry; could you please take your ID out of your wallet? I can’t see your face.”

Customer: “I really don’t understand why you need to see the photo. You can see the date.”

Me: “Well, the photo helps me verify that the ID belongs to you.”

Customer: “I still don’t understand, but whatever.”

(We finish the transaction and she leaves.)

Coworker: “Did she really just ask why you needed to see the photo on her photo ID?
