Their Argument Has Been Invalidated

(We card for ALL tobacco purchases. It doesn’t matter how old you look, if we have seen you every day for the past year, or if you are an employee of the store; we still have to see ID.)

Customer: “I’d like a pack of [Brand].”

Cashier: “Sure thing. I just need to see your ID, please.”

Customer: *pulls out ID*

Cashier: “I’m sorry, but this ID is expired; I can’t accept this. It has to be a valid—”

Customer’s Wife:What?! This is ridiculous! All you said was you needed to see his ID; you never said it had to be valid!”

(My cashier yells for me to come up to cancel the cigarette purchase.)

Customer’s Wife: “I just can’t believe this! All you said was you needed to see his ID! You never said it had to be valid! No one else cares! Every other store accepts it!”

Cashier: “I’m sorry, but if a police officer were to come in and see me accepting an expired ID, I could get into a lot of trouble—”

Customer’s Wife: “THIS IS JUST SO STUPID!”

(The customer finally finishes paying for his other purchases, and they start to leave.)

Customer’s Wife: “I am going to call and speak to a manager over her—” *pointing to me* “—about this! You never said it had to be a valid ID!”
