I had a cold. I rarely take cough syrup but use natural remedies like herbs.
But this time —I wanted to get rid of it quick. My throat was sore. I had an art show opening to go to.
So I picked up a bottle of the blue stuff in the local Rite Aid.
When I went to the cashier. I have been going to her a long time.
She said –“Do you have your license on you?”
I said “Why?”. I said—“Do you want a date?”–thinking they need to know you are over 21.
She said,” No I need to see your license.” So looks at it.
Now this is real silly. I wasn’t buying beer. I felt uncomfortable.
I wasn’t going to use this to produce drugs. I know other places will ask
for a date–to see that you are over 21. Also that you are not some kid
going to stuff it up their nose or drink to get high.
So they look at your license like they are reading a best seller and look at
you. Practice the authority gaze. Barf—barf.
It’s stupid and the world wonders why people’s identities are in jeopardy?
