Random Thought for Friday, May 19th, 2017: I Can’t Even

Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

I guess I must be one of the stupidest people on the planet.  I just can’t understand this behavior and I am through trying, I really am.

I was in line to pay for my lunch earlier this week when the cashier asked the customer for their id. The customer flew off the handle, screaming that it was racist to ask for id.

That’s where I felt my brain implode.

If you at paying with a credit or check card and the card is unsigned, a cashier can ask to see your identification to ensure that you are the owner of said card. Any retailer can ask for identification when presented with an unsigned card.

Fortunately…there was a cop in line behind me and yes, he did calm things down. He explained that it was not racist. He told the customer and the cashier that id is not needed if the card is signed.

It came out that the card was signed but the cashier insisted on id as the card was flagged for repeated disputed charges.

The customer insisted that no id was needed because she didn’t have her id, it was at home.

That’s when the cop made things more interesting.

Apparently he had followed her into the parking lot and noted that observed her driving a car.  So this person, admitted in public, in front of a cop, that she didn’t have a driver’s license with her while operating an automobile…well let’s just say that things did not go well for this customer.

If only I had been buying popcorn and a lawn chair…that would have made it a perfect afternoon. So now I am wondering if I should carry those two things with me all the time…I carry my driver’s license, why not add some accessories, right?
