Q & A

I am always asked to show my ID when I’m out shopping at the grocery store when I make a wine purchase. Now to some it would probably be looked upon as a compliment, but in my eyes it is nerve wrecking, if this happens to you how does it make you feel?

    • I have just excepted it. I do take it personally at all. At first is was flattering then it just became part of life when one buys alcoholic beverages.

    • NEICY...in defense of the clerk asking...I realize they are just doing their job.  They may have been instructed to ask no matter what THEY think.  They could also be videotaped and if they didn’t ask could lose their job.  So I really do not have a problem with it.  

      When I write a check or even use my debit card and that clerk ask to see my ID...I THANK THEM for asking.  Fraud is so rampant that I appreciate the clerk making sure that the person using my card is me or the person writing my check is me.  It’s for MY BENEFIT.  

      I would hate to make a fuss about someone asking ME for ID on buying alcoholic beverages when they are just doing their job.  Jobs are hard to find...and me showing my ID is nothing compared to them possibly losing their job because they didn’t ask.  That’s how I look at it...

    • It doesn’t really bother me much.  They probably are required to card people as part of their job.

    • What Mary Clark said..DITTO!

      Whats wierd is, I was just at 7-11 yesterday buying beer, cigarettes and a soft drink. I put the beer and soft drink on the counter and the girl was ringing me up without any questions and then when I said “oh and a pack of Marlboro ciggs please, then she decides to ask for my ID. What? I look old enough to buy the beer but not old enough for the Cigarettes...lolworried

    • That reminds me of when hub was carded a couple of months ago and he came home and told me, he felt very proud!happy

      I guess it is important to check because you never know!

    • Last time I went to Bevmo i saw they had a big sign saying they card everyone who looks under 50.  I put a bottle of wine on the counter as a test and wasn’t carded.  I was really offended. The clerk looked about 25. Card all or none-I think that’s the best policy.

    • I know at Target they require their employees to ask for an ID when purchasing beer/wine.  I asked them on day and they said it’s their company policy.
