Oh god don't even get me started on that bull****.
We went a while back to a grocery store and I grabbed a sixer of red hook ESB. My girlfriend left her wallet and stuff in the car because she just had a clutch and didn't feel like carrying it.
The one six pack of beer was the only thing we were buying too.
I walk up to the cash register and the (stupid) woman behind the counter asks if we're married. I look at her like she's retarded, because neither of us are wearing wedding bands, and tell her "no", then she asks to see BOTH of our IDs.
We're both 24, and she's older than I am. Yeah she looks a little younger, but whatever. I was buying a six pack of expensive craft beer, not a dirty thirty.
long story short, I was going to put it back but was so pissed that I waited there and steamed at the woman while the girlfriend went and got her **** out of the car, just so the cashier could look like an idiot to all of the people behind us.
The icing on the cake? The girlfriend doesn't even drink beer.
I get the whole "we ID" thing, but a lot of it should fall under discretion, seeing as a guy and his girlfriend buying one six pack of beer is a lot different than four or five guys walking up, and then one of them goes to the register to buy the beer while the others head out to the car.
