You have got to be kidding me!

I just stopped at Walmart to buy a loaf of bread, some bananas, and a few bottles of Martinelli's Sparkling Cider. One to celebrate (or commiserate) the election outcome; one to give as an opening night gift for a play. As I'm waiting for the clerk to ring it up, I realize he is looking at me a little weirdly. Soon enough, I find out why. "Ma'am...since this is non-alcoholic, I won't have to card you. Otherwise, I would need to see some id." WHAAAAAATT???? He thinks I don't look old enough to buy non-alcoholic cider? I should've been flattered, but I think it just made me wonder...where do they find these Walmart workers?

Ha Ha! That's so random. Why even bring it up if the beverage is non-alcoholic? Maybe he was flirting with you.

Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking, except, "OOOOHHHH CREEEPY!" He, was, like, 19, and well, I'm like, you know...over 40!
