I work in a store that sells both beer and cigarettes. Since there is an age requirement we need to check IDs. Everybody is familiar with being carded I'm sure. Or at least you'd think so.
Our policy is to ask for ID if the person looks to be 30 or under as a precaution for people who look older than they are. I am such a bad judge of age sometimes though! I once carded a 45 year old woman for beer. Man was she ecstatic!
So if you're going out to get smokes or some brew-skis, bring your ID!! Pretty simple. Especially if you are in the 18-30 range.
Because, I'm sorry but "I'm 22, I swear!" Just doesn't cut for me! lol
Not worth the fine, losing my liquor license and possibly losing my job because you forgot your ID.
