omg leave the poor man alone hes not under 21!
My God, can't common sense prevail in anything?
Whatever happened to good old common sense?Maybe a group (20+) of seniors that are obviously old enough to drink, ought to go into Hooters and then tell the server, "Sorry we're leaving", when asked for ID.
Alot of high and mighty types here today. Allas, ignorance at its finest as alot of people havent asked the most important question before opening mouth and spouting off. Why are they getting carded? 1) Some states have laws that everyone has to be carded regardless of their appearance. Even if the person is 100 they have to be carded and state control agencies check using minors and elderly. Happened to the local bar here. They didnt card a 72 year old man who was *undercover* and got busted. 2) Most large retailers and grocery stores registers will not complete a liquor sale without scanning your ID. Takes the decision making out of the clerks hands and makes it mandatory for everyone. Covers the businesses butt.3) Every single state actually has a no sale of alchohol without ID law. If every state simply enforced that law, everyone would have to get carded just to make sure they have an ID. If they did that though state law makers wouldnt be able to waste their time and our money rehashing the same laws every year as triumphes and would actually have to tackle important issues.I have noticed one curious trend when it comes to the people I have seen that get upset about getting carded. They almost always say they dont have one yet drove to the establishment. See it all the time at gas stations. Wonder if someone should tell them it is illegal to drive without a license...
What? He doesn't look a day over 21! :)
He should have taken it as a compliment. This is what happens when folks are forced into extremes, common sense no longer prevails. When I saw his age I thought perhaps he was upset because they did not have viagra on the menu.
Your reply was idiotic at best. When commonsense is not practiced in any business, it no longer has earned the loyalty of anyone offended. I'm 68 and would act the same way that this 80 years old did. Why do you post such childish and immature statements? It only makes you appear not as intelligent as you would like people to think of you.
yes i believe carding an obvious senior is kinda crazy.. but seriously... just show your id if they ask.. is it seriously that big of a deal?. the guy/girl is just doing their job. I also can't stand when people get upset over showing their id when using a credit card. seriously people...they only ask to make sure it is only you using your card. I bet the same person that gets upset over that would get really upset if their card was stolen and used and the cashier didn't ask for id then... in both theses situations the worker is only saving their behind or the customers...
He should have shown it and then asked for a senior discount.
Methinks there are too many regulations and too many idiots enforcing the exact letter of the law. When I was 18-21 years old I just carried some older buddy's license and got served--when they asked for it. The regs just make cheats out of us all. And then asking an obviously honest old timer for Id is ridiculous. Seating next to him is some kid with a fake ID downing his shots like crazy! The rules just don't work--the cheats drink and the honest die of thirst! Matt Dillon and Kitty never looked for ID at the saloon--those were the good old days before big nanny government took over our lives. (Vote Libertarian!!!)
Learn to read lips and you would be amazed what the waitresses at Hooters say when an older guy comes in for a beer.They seen to think only the young studs are worth their time to wait on.Sorry gals! Young guys don't tip as well as us "OLD FARTS" !
