    Customers who get upset when you compliment them by asking for ID, enjoy being ID'd while it lasts it means you look you young. ;)

    Yeah, used to be a cashier at Wal-Mart, and I'm really bad at judging ages, so unless they were really clearly older, I always checked IDs for alcohol, and I was amazed at just how pissed some people got when I asked.

    Reminds me of the great "handlebar accessory" debacle. I was helping a friend attach a clamp on the handlebar accessory when the clamp went "ping" and disappeared.

    We turned everything within 30 yards of the bike upside down and inside out to no avail. Giving up after a few hours I was sitting there staring at the handlebars when >doink< I saw the clamp down at the base of the bar next to the gooseneck. It hadn't popped off, it had popped on.

    It's almost always overcast here whenever something astronomically interesting is going on. :sigh:

    At my store, we card absolutely everybody who buys booze. Doesn’t matter how old they look.

    I kind of wish that had been so I had been Wal-Mart's policy, it would have made things easier.
    There was actually a guy who actually kind of scared me a little bit, he got so pissed that I thought he might attack me.
